THE DEATH OF RASPUTIN! Shot by a sniper on the frontlines during WWI! But that’s not the way it’s supposed to happen. Something’s very wrong.

    I could recommend this book on the art alone, however you also get a well written story to go along with it. I couldn't recommend this issue more. Read Full Review

    With the first volume of this story ending in shocking, heart-stopping fashion, it's undoubtedly going to be a long, painful wait until June 24th for the second volume in the series to begin. However, I'm going to make it my personal mission during that time to ensure that anyone who may have missed out on this inspired series until is given every opportunity to rectify that mistake. Gripping storytelling wrapped up in an utterly sublime visual package, Rasputin is a series that simply must be read. Read Full Review

    It's a complete bummer than the next chapter/volume of RASPUTIN is months away, since this ends at a pretty weird place where you'd want to keep on reading, but overall, this was one of the best issues of this volume. Grecian and Rossmo deliver yet another fantastic issue. I highly suggest picking this up in trade or buying the single issues. It really is a hidden gem at Image Comics. Read Full Review

    A great issue that adds great depth to Rasputin and explores the more violent aspects of early 1900's Russian history. Greater things are on the horizon- Keep your eyes on this title! Read Full Review

    This is the end of volume one, and volume two begins in June. If you haven't yet, pick this up (or get the trade when it comes out). It's well worth it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Forrest Hollingsworth Feb 25, 2015

    This issue won’t sway you one way or the other on Rasputin and it shouldn’t have led into a hiatus but it has a couple surprises and will definitely keep readers that are already invested interested enough to pick it up when it returns. Read Full Review

    Not the best of issues to go out on for a hiatus, but there are a few character moments fans will want to check out. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Feb 25, 2015

    I am once again puzzled by the positive reception that this series has received from other outlets. I just do not understand what other critics have found in this series that I have apparently consistently missed. I stand by the opinion that I've held for a good few months now that the book has no place on your pull list. It has an uninteresting and slow-moving plot, and a cast of bland characters that always seem to have nothing to bring to the table. While I throw the book a bone due to the fantastic artwork and because there's still a small part of me that wants to see where exactly it's headed, I still say that if you're trying to keep your costs down Rasputin is a book that can be skipped without losing any sleep.
