    As much as I've enjoyed these past couple of issues, I'm really excited to see the focus expand a little to explore Rasputin's rule in the contemporary politics of the comic. Especially as we know he has a serious amount of influence with the Governor, and an inherited need for notoriety and power. I can't wait to see what his agenda is beyond managing the secrecy of his complicated past. Rasputin is definitely one of my favourite ongoing series and always on the top of my reading pile. It takes it's mad premise and runs with it in a way that is smart and gorgeously executed. This was a slightly slower and more retrospective episode of the story, but completely central to Grigori's character and well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    I still wouldn't necessarily recommend Rasputin as a series, simply because it is far too inconsistent. That being said, this is solid issue and if you've been reading this book since it began you'll probably get a lot out of this installment. Plus, the fact that despite all the disappointments this series has given me, I'm yet to give up on it completely is I suppose a testament to the story that Alex Grecian is telling here.
