Background: After a failed mission to raid a tomb in the Israeli Desert, war veteran Rory Regan is plagued by the death of his partners. As Rory battles his guilt back in Gotham City, he discovers that what was in that tomb has followed him home, and it’s about to change his life. But as Rory begins his journey, an evil is invading Gotham City, and it wants what he’s discovered. A hero is born in this visionary reimagining of the Ragman mythos by writer Ray Fawkes and artist Inaki Miranda!

Review: I was really waiting for this book because for some reason, books with characters that people don’t really know always interest me. But anyway, the book starts off with a flashback which updates the character to a war vet or a soldier at the least, it’s very vague about what he was, which may have been to leave room to play around with the character or maybe for something else. But this book does not hold back with the magic, it’s still very grounded in reality but once Ray Fawkes starts putting his foot on the pedal and then cranks up the action, it really expresses how powerful Ragman could be. For a 6 issue miniseries, the pacing is off, it should have been faster but I understand the need for it since it’s a first issue, it’s a first issue, context is necessary. Overall, I give this a 7.5/10, the art is decent, the plot’s pacing was slow but I really liked the writing and I’m kinda excited to see where this goes because it has a solid character and premise.
