    GWW - Mark Delaney Sep 23, 2016

    My pull list isn't long enough for me to really feel comfortable calling Ringside the best comic book going right now, but I would be surprised if I discovered something better existed. As for issue #8 and those beyond, I have to remind myself that surprise is no longer a valid reaction. Keatinge and Barber are putting on a masterclass on how to write and draw a comic book. At this point any missteps they suffer in the future will likely be few and far between exceptions to the rule. Read Full Review

    So, what is Ringside? It is a nice thriller, made even better by the fact that we really don't know what's going to happen; it is an inside view into the most complex, least pleasant side of the pro wrestling world; it is a good comic series. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga Sep 21, 2016

    If wrestling business isn't one of the industries most filled with gossip outside of general entertainment business, I don't know what else could be. From the time kayfabe was broken in the early 90s, people have searched through tell-all books, shoot interviews, and now any piece of internet article that gives them new information on their favorite wrestler. Joe Keatinge and Nick Barber have busted open a cinematic window into the lives of these wrestlers and their very troubled lives. Read Full Review

    It's fun to see these characters tackle much different issues in the kick-off issue of part two. Ringside from Image is an absolutely dream for wrestling fans, and carries itself well-enough to find readers across the spectrum. It's worth picking up for its story-telling and obvious attention to subject matter.  Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Jared Leatzow Oct 15, 2016

    The issue feels slow moving, and maybe not worth the money to purchase. However, it provides depth of motivation for the supporting cast. In some ways this issue is completely necessary for a series of this nature, but with comics not being 25-cents any longer Ringside #7 is a hard purchase to justify. Read Full Review
