In the rough-and-tumble, dog-eat-dog world of the business of show, betrayal is just another fact of life...but when Ruff and Reddy betray the one person who believed in them, there'll be hell to pay-and pay again and again and again!

    THE RUFF AND REDDY SHOW #4 turns a classic children's cartoon into a twisted and offensive commentary on celebrities and the state of Hollywood. Where it could have been a safe trip to nostalgia-land, it becomes something different and new with a statement to make. Read Full Review

    It's cynical yet darkly hilarious. The story is great, but the artwork is jarring and unsettling. While this fits the tone of the story, it is still harsh on the eyes. Still, this series is worth a look for the story alone. Read Full Review

    Next issue promises further developments, but for whom remains a mystery. Perhaps Pamela will be pummeled as she deserves, or maybe Ruff & Reddy will recede into retirement as we deserve. Either way, its very entertaining. And isn't that what Hollywood is all about? Read Full Review

    At this point, this series works somewhat as a Hollywood satire, but as a stand-alone story it feels way too thin for a six-issue miniseries. Read Full Review

    The overall effect is a comic book afflicted with ADHD, too distracted by jokes, one-liners and thinly-disguised references to real-world celebrities to tell a coherently plotted story. Mac Rey's art remains fabulous and, in the sense that we are actually getting a story, this issue is an improvement on earlier ones, but it's still an uninvolving, largely charmless, sprawling mess of a series. Approach with caution. Read Full Review
