    The script by writer Rick Remender is great. It is never too serious and never too light. Remender knows how to strike the perfect balance with this book with his writing. The art by Bengal is very good as well, and it makes the whole book a worthwhile package. Read Full Review

    After the first chapter ended last month I wasnt expecting Scumbag to return so quickly but I was pleasantly surprised when this appeared in my inbox last week. Scumbag is a ridiculous over the top spy comic which focuses on the underdog proving everyone wrong about them, well almost wrong as he still messes a lot of things up and causes chaos everywhere he goes. That's what makes this series such a fun book to read and people should be checking it out. Read Full Review

    If you are into something really really different and you like uncomfortable clashes, this is your book. You'll laugh and wince and roll your eyes. Get in on the ground floor of Scumbag! A Ernie Ray says " You people don't know how to party. You hate me because I do!" If you want to catch up, be on the lookout for the trade paperback Cocaine Finger. That tells you all you need to know right there! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 24, 2021

    As the series progresses, Remender has to maintain a balance between character development and the intrinsic appeal of his LACK of development. He simply not going to want to do anything that an accident would do. And that's his appeal. And yet, at the same time, if he develops too quickly, he loses his initial appeal. If he's too successful at becoming a good person, he's going to lose audiences. Remender's pacing continues to tread a meticulous balance between progress and arrested development and another satisfying issue. It will be interesting to see where the story goes in the next several issues. Read Full Review
