    This was the return every Rasputin fan was waiting for. It had some great story development, wonderful character moments with Rasputin and a pitch-perfect atmosphere. I simply wish there were more. Read Full Review

    Alex Grecian has used the time off well, coming back with a well crafted issue that clearly has an end goal in mind. Riley Rossmo continues to create images and scenes that deliver on Grecian's story, creating action and excitement, while offering up some stunning visuals, and the resurrection scenes never fail to impress. Ivan Plascenia's colours only add to Rossmo's refined yet scratchy pencils, and creates a unique feel to a book that feels old and fresh all at the same time. Read Full Review

    It's no secret that I wasn't a huge fan of the first volume of Rasputin, but volume two has kicked off firing on all cylinders. The story is more focused, the characters show a lot of promise and the art continues to look great. I'm really hoping that this creative team can keep up the high standard set by this issue, because if they can then volume two of Rasputin might well become a must-read. Read Full Review

    Issue six is what fans have been waiting some time for and this creative team, no surprise, delivers. Who would have thought having a comic about Grigori Rasputin as an anit-hero would work so well? I applaud Image for publishing such a risky concept and for the creators for following through with amazing execution. It'shighly recommended that newcomers pick up the first trade and this issue. Its so engrossing that it will be a quick read and for current fans, this is a no-brainer. Get to a local comic shop or online and pick this up. Its well on its way to being another revolutionary Image title! Read Full Review

    With the story now set in this new time period, Grecian has given himself extra room to expand this recreated legend even further, and the addition to the nature of Rasputin's powers in this issue proves there's more to the Mad Monk and his legend that Grecian has yet to show. Read Full Review
