One thought on “Preview: Rampage Jackson – Street Soldier Vol.1

  1. with such talented individuals working on this…The story should have been much more involved instead of clashes after drawn out clashes…Nice art with a clashes story.

    I would have made it more down to earth involving a crime syndicate who goes after his cousin/brother…than he exacts vengeance after they kidnap his sister or daughter…as he fights his way through the organize crime bosses locations until he comes face to face with the promoter who kidnapped his kin’ all to get him to fight in some kind of underground Kumite.

    That would have been more like a Kick Ass type of story wiith a lot of Taken…then pushed into a movie.( NEXT TIME HIRE ME AS THE WRITER…Go to my page and see what i’m Talkin’ Bout”
