    RAI is Valiant's best looking comic, though next month's WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR might bump it down to second. Rai's earthbound journey and the welcome appearance of the Eternal Warrior make me excited to see where this arc can go. Read Full Review

    The book is an intriguing look at the future. As Geomancers are involved, I suppose it was only a matter of time before one of the brother three got brought into the book. That said, the warrior sought by Rai is not the only surprise that he encounters. Kindt is flexing his creative muscles with this book, which is a very different from his other Valiant book, Ninjak. That said, a new world may not suit everyone and a level of perseverance may be required as there doesn't seem to ber a natural jumping on point. Still, the reward may be worth the effort.

    Rai #11is an excellent issue with anintense ending that makes up for what would have otherwise been just another build up issue. It's good to see Lula and Spylocke taking action and not just planning to attack Father. Same goes for Momo and Izak, although this toostops on the precipice of the move against Father. However,the conclusion to this issue has melegitimately excited about next issue since it seems as if Rai will finally return to battle but not alone. Read Full Review

    Rai #11 may be one of the weaker entries in the series to date, but it is nonetheless an amazing entry, showing the sheer quality of the series as a whole. Giving some intriguing developments, as well as inviting dialogue and visuals, the creative team make this a joy to read, leaving us with a tantalising climax. Read Full Review

    Of all the titles Valiant has produced, Rai by Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain continues to be the most unique. With Rai continuing his journey across the globe, he continues to learn more about the world that New Japan and Father left behind while building his own strength now that he is finally independent. In many ways, Rai has become a story of self-discovery; a coming-of-age tale that many millennials can identify with. Read Full Review
