Rory Reagan must save his father who has been captured by two demonic siblings. Not understanding his powers yet, Rory risks destroying the souls of his friends also caught within his rags. Will Rory stop himself in time or exact his vengeance on the demons?

This version of Ragman attempts to fuse both the Pre-Crisis and the Post-Crisis lore into one. Rory Regan appears to be of Irish descent again. Regan was never believable as a Jewish name… Yet, the source of Ragman’s power continues to draw from Jewish lore and that is something that is very pleasing. The story is playing to the genre so far so the little mystery about who the villains are and what they want is not fully developed. It is a good story thus far. I like the way Ragman uses the rags almost like Spider-man.

What I dislike the most is the lack of patches that used to make up Ragman’s costume. It lacks the patchwork feel and makes him look more like a mommy fighting with drapes than random pieces of fabric. His old costume made him unique. This design makes him look generic. The patches could be coloured with multiple colours, although a mix of greens, browns and beiges was usually used. This costume lack personality. Personality is not lacking in the execution of the rest of the comic’s artwork. As the series has already ended, my commentary may be useless and too late.

Rating: 8 /10
