While Static's last ish was a pretty good standalone issue (and a not-bad issue #1, in many ways) this book suffers from 'everything but the kitchen sink' syndrome, as the writer clearly had a lot of things that he wanted to get in before transitioning Mister Terrific into the world of the Justice Society. The art feels somehow rushed throughout the issue, with a lot of squash-and-stretch anatomy and some really puzzling images of Mister Terrific's t-mask, and even the upbeat ending (which does have me looking forward to Earth-2) doesn't overcome the challenges laid upon the story's underpinnings by asking it to bear far too much weight. Mister Terrific #8 is hampered by having too much story to tell and not enough pages to do it in, earning a mixed-but-primarily-positive 2 out of 5 stars overall. Read Full Review
