    Yeah $16 for all 4 of the 4 part series not bad.

    Well I hate to say this, but i bet these comics may be the best part about this .... The Raid is such a good movie and look what it says "The perfect companion to the upcoming Hollywood remake!" ......... so hollywood is remaking The Raid .... can you really make The Raid better or expand on it? I dont have high hopes. And wasnt that remake called Dredd. ha.

    so these comics have nothing to do with the Indonesian greatness? (granted I've yet to see Raid 2....)


    that said, I recall the first Raid coming out around the same time as Dredd and personally loved both of them.

    Well characters and drawing are that of the Indonesian films, but i presume story is different ... and it was to my surprise just reading of the news in that blurb from OP that there is a new hollywood remake coming.
