    Rai continues to be a worthy addition to anyone's pull list, as between the amazing writing of Matt Kindt and sensational artwork of Clayton Crain, we get a comic that is brimming with awesomeness. It also manages to tease the future of this series wonderfully, coming highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Rai #10 is a great character development issue for Rai as he learns about the inhabitants of Earth and a great warrior who can help him in his quest to defeat Father. In addition, what's laid out on Earth in terms of the new characters and the introduction of an eternal warrior creates so much potential going forward. Spylocke's ordeal including Lula and Grace mounting a rescue feels relatively simplistic although I like what's revealed about Spylocke here. And once again this series has put forward an entertaining issue with an engrossing story, enjoyable characters and intense action. I can't wait for the next one. Read Full Review

    As I already mentioned, the artwork in this issue is absolutely worth absorbing, so on the off chance you don't want to read the series, at least look through it when you see it on the racks. However, as Valianthave been producing some of the most consistently great comics from any publisher over the past few months, it should come as no surprise thatRai #10 is worth reading (even if you may also want to pick upRai #9, if you haven't already).

    It's a powerful story, so if you don't mind (or are a fan of) the grim and gritty storytelling, you should be reading Rai. Read Full Review

    In some ways the slower pace has proven reinvigorating, allowing Matt Kindt to really deal with the toll Rai's war with Father has had on both him and the people of New Japan. Conversely, it also robs the read of some of its intended urgency, as Rai's slow return to form is somewhat offset by the perilous happenings continually endured by the series' secondary characters.

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen Sep 15, 2015

    Do not be mistaken, Rai #10 is still a very solid comic book. Kindt and Crain give some much needed attention life outside New Japan " specifically on the wasteland that is Earth. In many respects, it is good old-fashioned science fiction. Seeds are also planted that have much potential in future installments. However, it falls a tad short of the series' lofty standards.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Sep 16, 2015

    I like that this story has slowed down some. The first two arcs moved swiftly and never really took a break. Now we're starting to get more development out of the characters and seeing what this world is all about. If you've been reading the series there's no reason to stop now. Read Full Review
