Review: Ragman #4                               

A pair of short stories from regular Ragman writer Bob Kanigher. The first one, illustrated by the Redondo Studio, is a bit hurried, but the wordless backup story, featuring art by co-creator Joe Kubert, is quite masterful. [More]

Review: Ragman #3                               

When a mute, blind orphan witnesses a murder, local thugs again come to blows with Ragman. Another excellent offering from Bob Kanigher and the Redondo Studio, though the art is better executed than the story this time out. [More]

Thugs keep looking for more than $2 million in missing loot — but find only pain when messing with Ragman. A fine followup to a great debut, again by the team of Bob Kanigher and the Redondo Studio. [More]

When his father is murdered, Rory Regan dons a tattered costume to fight for justice in the ghetto — as Ragman! One of the underrated gems of the mid-1970s, from the team of Bob Kanigher and the Redondo Studio, with a little help from Joe Kubert. [More]
