Ragman #4

In DC, Reviews by T. Andrew Wahl0 Comments

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.

Rom #15

Rom ally – and potential love interest – Brandy Clark prepares to wed the Dire Wraith who secretly replaced her fiancé. This above-average issue from the regular Rom creative team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema moves the series forward.

Warlord #12

As Travis Morgan brawls in a tavern, Mariah and Machiste reminisce about their previous adventures with the Warlord. A nice character-building issue from series creator Mike Grell.

Ragman #3

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

Rom #14

In Marvel, Reviews by T. Andrew Wahl0 Comments

Rom is attacked by the Mad Thinker’s android while a backup tale sheds some light on an earlier spaceknight battle. A odd-and-uninspired pair of stories from the regular Rom creative team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema.
