SERIES FINALE! Like father, like daughter? Okay, fine, maybe a little. Crush and Lobo are back in prison, but this time they’re stuck together and no one’s happy about it. Well, except maybe the gleefully scheming warden, who’s now got two Czarnians for the price of one. Is escaping space prison worth putting aside a couple little differences like “tried to kill each other multiple times?” Crush and Lobo make no promises in the thrilling conclusion to their series!

    Tamaki creates an interesting and fulfilling conclusion to this limited series. It was fun watching this father/daughter duo create havoc amongst their enemies. Read Full Review

    Nahuelpan and Bonvillain really had fun with the art and the colors in this finale. As entertaining as the action has been in this whole series, it really struck a nice balance between the lighthearted tone the book uses as its identity and a more traditional approach to action when the moments call for it.

    Crush and Lobo #8 is a powerful ending that digs deep into Crush as a character and as a reflection of carried trauma. Im gonna miss this series and I kind of already want it back. Read Full Review

    I think this stand-alone mini might become a minor classic for the YA market. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 5, 2022

    Crush and Lobo concludes with big splashy punches and pages from Amancay Nahuelpan seasoned with self-aware scripting from Mariko Tamaki and a color palette from Tamra Bonvillain that ranges from garish to sterile depending on if the scene is set on cool planets or in jail. It's an entertaining series and definitely proves that Crush can stand on her own apart from her more famous father even though their interactions led to a lot of humor and a little bit of soul searching.

  • 8.0 - Jamie Lovett Jan 5, 2022

    The final chapter of the excellent Crush & Lobo series suffers from a case of narrative indecision, seemingly caught between providing a sense of closure and leaving the conclusion open-ended enough for a sequel. Read Full Review
