    It's still "Nowhere Men", and it's still great. Read Full Review

    If the last issue of Nowhere Men felt like the calm before the storm, #8 seemed to ripple the waters a bit, and the comic continues to excite. Read Full Review

    I will say, the final page confused me,. but this time it wasn't only in a "Who is that character?" way but also because the art just flat out didn't resonate with me. I don't know exactly what was going on in that page, and honestly I'm not sure if I want to. Read Full Review

    This issue is a great way to carry on the plot. There are a lot of aspects to the storyline that are just waiting to be weaved together. If I were you, I'd stick around to see what they look like in the end. This is an awesome piece of science fiction, and a very entertaining read. Read Full Review

    All this may sound a little harsh on a book which still has a lot going for it. Jordie Bellaire turns in typically beautiful colors and while Taylor's art can feel a little boring, there's plenty of evidence that he can still create some breathtaking imagery. And Stephenson's script, for all that I am tired of its mysteries and asides, has at least one wonderful moment involving Strange's daughter that I won't spoil. But for all this, it's amazing how much more lively the small intros illustrated by Emi Lenox are than the rest of the book. They are light, simple asides from the perspective of a young Monica Strange that shed new light on Strange's daughter as well as her relationship to the concept of genius. These sections demonstrate how nice it would be to break up the format of Nowhere Men and try something new. Read Full Review

    This issue had some pacing issues, but the art and story are still all there. I love the Emi Lenox webcomic opening, and the colors on this book really pop, but nothing really important happened here, at least that I could tell. So hopefully this book rebounds next issue, because I want there to be more to this series than what we got in this issue. There are still so many questions left unanswered, and so many people still left unaccounted for, so these issues need to be resolved ALONGSIDE all the talk. Maybe I just held off on this book until too late in the day, and it just got too far down the pile that by the time I got to it I was no longer in the mood for slower talky-talky books. I still love the look of this book, and I am really, really interested in seeing how these people deal with their mutation/transformation AND how they handle Susan who turned into a sentient and possibly psychic/telepathic amorphous blob of tarry black gas cloud or whatever. This book has been immensely fun so far, so trading on all those past successes keeps this book out of the basement for this issue, but I will be expecting MUCH more in issue nine.
