In a world beyond the sight of mortals, Heaven and Hell wage war for the souls of mankind. Principal among God's legion are seven archangels written about in religious texts for millennia. But there is an eighth archangel, known only from passing allusions in Apocrypha, who operates under a different code. Fighting without God's sanction, he faces the enemy on his own terms, and shows just how bad good can be.

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 22, 2020

    An incredible debut issue, incredibly violent and deserving of the mature rating, this promises to be a fantastic series. It sets a dark, seedy tone early on and the violence contributes to the moodiness of the work. The art is absolutely gorgeous and establishes AWA as a publisher to be eagerly following.

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Mar 20, 2020

    At the end of the day, theres little I can fault about Archangel 8, save for a slight deviation from my expectations. Providing a bleak and violent introduction to this world of hired killers, Moreci, Smith et al do a great job of laying the groundwork for what promises to be an entertaining series. With an enigmatic leading man and a twisted succession of feints, twists and shocking violence, this is a new series you really ought to be checking out. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Nemesis Feb 20, 2020

    All in all this is a very good book with two flaws that end up detracting from the final score but in no way detract from the experience of reading the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of spy novels, action, assassins and crime drama. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Mar 18, 2020

    It's a solid, well-written and decently-illustrated opener from Michael Moreci and company who manage to balance the gritty action elements with the supernatural ones to offer something engaging and interesting without falling too deeply into the pit of feeling like just some sort of supernatural Punisher knock off. It's worth checking out. Read Full Review
