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.

Anyone read the first issue yet? I rewatched The Raid and Berandal before digging in. Looks like the mini-series aims to fill the two year gap between Rama going into prison and getting out. So we get to see what prison was like for Rama after Uco got early release and the initial rise of Bejo in the Jakarta criminal underworld. Overall I liked it, but it's not without its flaws. I feel the script could've been a little sharper. I know it's only the first issue but I feel Teja, a new special operations cop introduced for this series, could've been fleshed out a little better. I know the Jakarta police force is corrupt, but the circumstances for him going to jail seemed a little farfetched and happened much too quickly. That being said, the artwork is great. Setiawan utilizes a clever device to depict the brutal violence in sequential form. Looking forward to issue 2!

As an undercover cop in jail, the last thing Rama wants to see is a familiar face... but it seems his actions in the first movie are back to haunt him. Writer Alex Paknadel (Doctor Who, Arcadia) enters the brutal world of the cult martial arts movie hit, in a bone-breaking new story set during the events of the second movie!
