DC Haunted #6: Ragman

Of many of the despised and wicked souls within the DC Universe, none quite have the badge of honor that Rory Regan, also known as The Ragman (appearing first in Ragman #1, 1976), have come to bear.

In 2010, Ragman appeared in a one-shot episode that put him in a philosophical spin. Having never understood his father, he goes to a Rabbi for mentoring and understanding.

This is the collection of one issue: Ragman #1: Suit of Souls. It's brilliantly drawn with a compelling story about Rory Regan, a guy searching for understanding to his father's bizarre past. Why didn't he acknowledge his faith? Why did he leave Europe? All these things begin to make sense as Rory goes to the one place where answers can be found: within the suit!

Rory Regan, also known as Ragman, is #6 on The Top 12 DC Spirits of Halloween, a countdown provided by The Superheroes List. Like ghosts and ghouls with a mix of superheroes? Check out the List!
