A new look at one of history’s “villains”

Rasputin Volume 2 - Riley Rossmo, Alex Grecian

 

 

Not having read Volume 1, this was a bit of a mystery at first. This Rasputin travels through history, manipulating circumstances and using healing powers for his own benefit, leaving him accompanied by the ghosts of those that he has killed as her “enjoys” eternal life. He recounts parts of his life to a freelance journalist.

 

Cartoon-type illustrations work well here, reminiscent of the French “bande dessinée” style and there’s plenty of bloodshed. Perhaps a bit brief when it comes to plot. However a good yarn, well recommended.
