    Ruse is a graphic novel series that is perfect for readers who love the Victorian-set adventure vibe. There is a paranormal element that felt very light in this volume, but it's there for readers who like a bit of the weird (admittedly myself). For readers who can't get enough of the sometimes obnoxious Sherlock Holmesian character, Simon is going to appeal. At the same time, with this edition, we see more vulnerability and the less confident person beneath the know-it-all exterior. Emma's loyal [...]

    While this volume of Ruse comics is not quite as good as the one that preceded it, I still love it. Yes, Guice's art is a bit muddier here, but it still retains most of its elegance and wonder. Yes, the story is a bit less interesting when it has more of a focus on Simon Archard, the detective, but we still get almost enough time following the more interesting and relatable Emma Bishop. Even a less perfect version of Ruse, it seems, is significantly better than many comics published today, and i [...]

    An entertaining sequel exploring the Holmes-like detectives ex-partner turned crazy killer. I think I liked this more than the first one. But since I really don't remember much about the first one I probably need to go back and reread it to make sure (or maybe I'll just call it good and move on to something else).

    I wasn't as impressed this time around. I was hoping to find out more about Emma (like exactly what is she?), but the entire plot revolved around Simon's ex-partner. It was interesting, but not that interesting.

    The Ruse series is one of several reasons I was sad to see Crossgen go out of business. Absolutely brilliant, beautiful comic book genius.

    So, a few weeks ago, a coworker and I were talking about graphic novels, and during the discussion, she mentioned how much she loved Ruse. She told me a little about the premise, and while it didn’t really rock my socks off, she loaned me the first two trade paperbacks to give them a read, and I figured: Why not?Well, on the bright side, I didn’t spend a whole lot of time reading the collections. And truth be told, the stories aren’t bad, as much as they’re just not anything I’m really [...]

    Oh thank god Marvel bought Crossgen so I can continue to read Ruse. This volume is more entertaining than the first, probably because the super hero adventure bits aren't bogged down by world and character introductions. And anything that has a riff on the illustrations of J.C. Leyendecker is super sweet.

    Very good art, decent storytelling - but (at least the copy I have has) utterly rubbish binding! Newish book and the spine can't handle the first few page turns. This isn't as random as one might think, after all, what's the point of reading a book if one can't turn the page but if you can get a good copy, enjoy Ruse to the fullest.

    The last half of this, about Archard and Lightbourne, was the strongest part of this book, I thought. The first story seemed pretty standard and not really explained very well (like in Heroes, where somehow changes in your DNA make you fly or talk to machines). The best part, as usual, is the Archard/Bishop dialogue and the fantasy Victorian setting.

    Not bad at all. Pretty entertaining. This was an impulse buy at a recent sale at the local comic store and I'm pretty glad I decided to pick it up. The art by Guice was also a highlight for me.One problem though- the binding was horrible! It fell apart almost immediately after I unwrapped the comic. Is this why Crossgen Comics went out of business?

    I liked volume two: the silent partner much better than volume one: enter the detective. Simon and Emma were easier to relate to and I enjoyed the villain, backstory, and mysteries much more. I don't think there is a volume three, which is disappointing.

    Nicole
    Artwork is beautiful, story is intriguing (if slightly improbable), and dialogue is as funny and sharp as ever!

    Helen
    Thrilling, romantic, and a lot of fun!

    Max
    A bit of an accelerated conclusion to the series, but gem-filled nonetheless, with Emma & Archard's charismatic back-and-forth, mysteries aplenty, and a neat ending.

    I found the tpb in a bargain bin for the paltry sum of $2. Fantastic value for that price. Will try to go and find the first and next volumes.

    this is a really good series

    As I wrote a few days ago, I am culling my books. I am reading all of my comics and graphic novels first.
