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 May 3, 2020

    Archangel 8 is shaping up to be one of the most stylised comics of the year. This is a phenomenal comic that will appeal to fans of the Punisher or Hellblazer. A rich mythos that begs to be explored, gorgeous artwork which will pull readers in, and an incredible hardboiled story that comes together to produce an outstanding comic. Highly recommended.

    While it's virtually impossible to bypass Marvel and DC in sales, the writing that AWA is putting out is better than anything the big two are doing right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jun 17, 2020

    Archangel 8 #2 is a violent, intriguing and even better executed second chapter in this supernatural noir tale with strong moody art and writing that balances some heavy, violent action with good character work and tension building storytelling from the team. It's well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Jun 7, 2020

    A successful vigilante comic that offers more then just the violence. This issue is brutal and requires more work from the reader to get through the violence to the core of the story., but the layers are there. Excellent art work and plotting make this comic worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Back in the '90s, someone had the bright idea to kill off the Punisher. Someone then had an even better idea to bring Frank Castle back as an avenging angel with supernatural abilities.

    It was an utterly bizarre idea that was quickly retconned by Garth Ennis. Today the Punisher Angel storyline serves as a nice piece of trivia rather than one that anyone takes as a definitive storyline. Archangel 8 seems to be telling a story with a similar basis but where the Punisher storyline was kinda ridiculous, Archangel 8 gets it right in a way that I don't believe Marvel ever could.

    The issue follows Archangel 8 as he continues his mission. The book is beyond brutal. The opening sequence highlights the price of failure in this more

    -Like the plot development of Michael being the antagonist
    -Seems like altering the landscape of the cartel is just part of the game
    -Wish we got to know more about dee, but maybe that'll come later on.
    -Another great issue, enjoying how things are playing out
