As Rory is forced to face his own inner demons he must fight his way out, both physically and mentally, in order to save his father.
Story:

All hell is breaking loose, and man is it a sight to behold. In no time at all, this story has gone from zero to sixty, and we’re now moving at full-speed and in a direction that shows great promise.

Writing:

Ray Fawkes is making great use of his time in writing this limited run; so much so that readers are going to reach an end, and inevitably, want more. In Ragman (2017-) #2, more is revealed both about Rory and his new mystical threads. Fawkes, while adding insight also manages to raise the stakes quite a bit, and thus, in doing so, produces an issue that is both packed full of action and story.

Art:

Inaki Miranda is producing some stellar artwork in illustrating Fawkes’ script. Panel after panel, Miranda incorporates intense imagery that makes reading Ragman a stellar experience.

The Bottom Line:

In Ragman (2017-) #2, writer Ray Fawkes provides the reader with some added insight into not only Rory’s life, but also into the myth/legend surrounding Ragman. With only four issues remaining in this run, Fawkes is making excellent use of his time; we’re moving full-speed ahead.
