An almost complete departure from Smith's previous series; Bone. After waking up in a world that's not-quite-right, RASL takes readers on a thrill-ride art heist through multiple dimensions. While not quite as family friendly as his previous work, RASL cements Jeff Smith's place among the top of the list in independent comics.
— Chris Linendoll
This is a beautiful, dark, mixed-up series. It is science-fiction mixed with realism and made into one mad trip down the rabbit hole. Rasl’s adventures of trying to protect himself from those who would stop him, survive “Drifting” (jumping into parallel worlds) and most importantly, protecting loved ones makes him the quintessential anti-hero. Mature images and themes. — Jeanette
