Rathraq is back! But who is he, exactly? Once an ancient warrior god, he was resurrected as a sword-wielding scarecrow. And now, Rathraq has transformed yet again-or has he? JOHN ARCUDI and new artist, superstar DAVID RUBÍN, give you the new face of Rathraq and a new direction for the series when the critically acclaimed RUMBLE returns!

    Writer John Arcudi returns with a second volume of Rumble, this time joined by artist David Rubin, and the result is just as much pedal to the metal, absurd mayhem as the first volume proved to be. Rumble #1 isn't a book for every taste, as it's truthfully pretty weird. But I can honestly say you won't see much like it on the stands right now, and it boasts amazing art, rich colors and a truly unique story. Put simply, it's good to have Rathraq back.

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Nov 29, 2017

    Rumble #1 delivers an interesting and involving introduction to the world of Rumble. It is one of the few examples where the story doesn't scare off newer readers but instead welcomes them by offering them easily digestible tidbits of the universes pre-existing history. While many of my pre-existing concerns regarding #1 issues stand in place, Rumble #1 offers hope that the story will go in a positive direction and not collapse inward on it's already expansive lore and mythos.

    Hell yes welcome back! Rumble, while starting off a tad slow here, is a great return from Image comics best book of the last few years. New art, same old excellence. Read Full Review

    The new artist puts aside concerns of visual quality, but the issue tries to do much and sacrifices a reason for a new reader to jump on. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Dec 13, 2017

    Ordinarily, I like weird. I want the writers to mash genres and I want the artists to color outside the lines, but Arcudi and Rubin miss the mark with Rumble. The story is thin and the art is cartoonish making it difficult to take the action seriously and providing little compulsion to expect much different to come in subsequent issues. Read Full Review
