    Overall, Ringside remains one of the most exciting new debuts from Image this year which, given the incredibly high level of their 2015 output, is not an accolade I give away lightly. Readers expecting a bright, bold rockem sockem wrestling series are going to be bitterly disappointed, but for fans of grim, violent crime drama, this could be exactly what the doctor ordered. Once again, this is a book that comes highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Ringside #2 is really an extension of the story from #1, so reviewing the individual issue is difficult here because it's just a continuation of what made the first issue great. All I can say about it as a second issue is that Keatinge and Barber know how to pull in the reader, with a tale of beat characters and gripping drama. Wrestling this is not. It's the violent drama surrounding it that makes this comic so great. I highly recommend keeping an eye on this one. Read Full Review

    As I often say, I love variety in my reading. This book introduced me to people I might never have known and put them in circumstances I may never completely understand. But I'm all the better for having read this comic. I'm not sure I'll ever really become a wrestling fan, but I feel I have at least learned a lot about that profession. I see the why's and wherefore's, particularly when it comes to those around the ring. Read Full Review

    “Ringside” #2 is still very young but I'm rooting for it. Maybe in time I'll even mark out for it. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Scott Southard Jan 4, 2016

    What we're left with is a very good structure with a bit less substance than desired. I have faith that this series will remain good (now and into the future), and Ringside #2 does nothing to disprove that. We'll have to wait until next month's issue, where we can climb back into the squared circle to really see what this series is made of. Read Full Review
