Ragman #4

In DC, Reviews by T. Andrew WahlLeave a Comment

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.

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.

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.
