    Ei8ht has delivered a master class in how to make a successful mini-series, as though last issue saw a slight dip in quality, the series has come as close to perfection as you can get. Being dramatic and intense, this penultimate issue sets the foundations for what's bound to be an explosive finale, having me pumped for it's release. Read Full Review

    Artist Rafael Albuquerque continues to fire on all cylinders as the story spans millions of years and tackles everything from Nazi super-science to flying dinosaur jailbreak scenes. For his part, writer Mike Johnson keeps the script fast-paced and engaging. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 20, 2015

    While I continue to feel that this book will make for a great sit down marathon read when it's all said and done, each individual issue has done a great job to expand upon the world and to keep it engaging with the revelations and the action. Forward progress – across different points in time – is what we get here once again with a lot going on, paradoxes set into motion (that were technically already in motion!) and some background material that makes the Spear seem even more fearful than we thought he was already. It's a solidly fun book all around once again, especially when you break apart the individual pieces with the writing, artwork and coloring itself, as it all blends together well. This is the kind of creator owned work that really drives me interesting and those involved here have been providing one utterly delightful ride that I hope has a resounding conclusion the next time around.

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia May 20, 2015

    All in all, Ei8ht #4 is a really solid issue. Albuquerque and Johnson put together the best chapter in the series thus far. With only one issue to go, there is still a lot to see. But if the momentum and events of this issue are any indication, readers are in for a real treat next month. Read Full Review

    At this point, I still dig the series, but if it weren't a limited miniseries that was about to wrap up, I wouldn't be buying it, I would just be waiting for the collection. Albuquerque's art is phenomenal, and the story he and Mike Johnson have cooked up serves its purposes extremely well, but at this point, I'd like to see more of an open world than a tightly focused miniseries like this. Albuquerque has the same flair for action and the strange that Matteo Scalera has in Black Science, or that Sean Murphy has in everything. Here's hoping that leads to more stories in the Ei8ht universe in the future, or I'll just have to keep satisfying my Albuquerque urge with American Vampire, when it isn't delayed. Read Full Review
