Reviews

Full of broken bones, shattered ribs, and crushed skulls. Martial arts and violence are in abundance in this comic, and I enjoyed the hell out of it.

Bleeding Cool

Brutal! 9 out of 10! If you are a fan of the Raid films, this is a no-brainer — you gotta pick this up.

Adventures in Poor Taste!

Ollie Masters and Budi Setiawan do a solid job of transferring the kinetic, frantic action of the Raid movies to comics.

Uproxx

Writer Ollie Masters and artist Budi Setiawan deliver an unapologetic reward for fans!

Comics Beat

Seriously intense! Man oh man can Budi Setiawan draw action scenes perfectly! Rating: A.

Rock! Shock! Pop!

Bursts with the kind of violence that makes you wince and check your own teeth... The Raid is a video nasty of a comic, that you’d secretly share with your mates and hide from your mum.

Mass Movement

The Raid blends intensity with humor, and captures the movie’s bone-crushing brutality on the page.

The AV Club

Fans won't be disappointed! Rating: A
