    If you're not already reading Rasputin, get on it. It's a haunting, personal tale of struggle and woe with clever writing, beautiful storytelling and some of the best art you can find for $4 a month. Yes, it's good. Read Full Review

    A great new chapter in the series that ties into the new history of the character and brings closure to the factual side of his life. Read Full Review

    The comic plays fast and loose with the admittedly hazy biographical details of Rasputins life, but in a way that makes perfect sense for a figure that is more legend than man. This months issue ends on a brilliant tease thats left me hungry to see how Rasputins timeline play will tear up and play with existing history. Ending on Grigoris declaration, Im an American now, the series is owning its dramatic departure from historical lore, adapting, chameleon-like to its new setting just like our hero. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Stephenson Ardern-Sodje Aug 3, 2015

    With such a sublimely slowburning first arc, issue seven feels like its jolting a little as it shifts gears. But once the more clunky set up is out of the way, I'm still confident this book will be at the top of my pull list. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - David Craig Jul 29, 2015

    The more I think about this series, the more frustrated I get by just how lazy it is. There's real potential here for a good story, but unfortunately issue after issue it is squandered. Despite the fact I've been reading this book for nearly a year now, each instalment can be boiled down to: a bunch of characters we know nothing about take part in a sequence of disconnected scenes that make little to no sense. This is the most disappointing issue of Rasputin yet. Read Full Review
