Ruffians #5 by Brian Canini
This issue seems to represent a bit of a lull in the series, which I suppose makes sense if you consider the fact that itâ€™s entirely inside the prison, so what exactly can a hitman, bent on revenge, do in there anyway? In this issue Scar wins some cigarettes, gets the crap beat out of him, and meets his â€œlawyerâ€, in which we get some hope that he might get out of all this yet. All in all a decent issue, not something that does a whole lot for me on its own, but probably as a piece of a larger whole itâ€™ll make everything run together more smoothly. Thatâ€™s assuming, of course, that the series is going to keep moving right along. The steady pace of these things coming out has kept me, cynical as I can be about people giving up on their various comic series, hopeful about there being a beginning, middle and end here, as well as a will to keep it all moving. Go Brian go!
