Laid up in a hospital recuperating till he can become Damage again, Ethan Avery gets help from a surprising source: the Unknown Soldier, master of covert warfare! The Soldier helps Ethan evade Colonel Jonas and her military ops team until his powers recharge, but time's running out-not just for Ethan, but for the other patients as well.

    Damage #8 had a good balance between being informative and delivering on the action that you expect from this series. Overall this issue really opened our eyes to the argument that is what it means to be a soldier and the difference between being that and being a superhero. Read Full Review

    DAMAGE #8 is a solid issue. With the introduction of a new character, the Unknown Soldier, the redundant plot line of the Damage series may finally change. Although some facial expression look stiff and lifeless, the face paced nature during the chase scenes is captured in the artwork. Overall, a decent issue. Read Full Review

    This was a great introduction for the next arc in Damage's development. The Unknown Soldier is a legendary character and I love his role in this story. I think he has the compassion to show Ethan the two sides to the choices he will need to make. He also has the experience to provide some guidance and maybe a few tricks about how to operate out of the public eye. I think Ethan would benefit from a disguise. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is one of the most interesting issues of the series, as we finally start getting some answers rather than just smashing everything in sight. Read Full Review

    While I still don't think Damage is quite up to the quality level the early issues of the series were able to obtain this issue seems to show a bit of rebound effort in getting the series focus back on track.  The brief appearance of our title character artistically gets the character back to the size and scale of earlier issues as well. Overall combined together this effort at least makes me look forward to next weeks annual and seeing where this story moves from there. Read Full Review

    The story as a whole still isn't entirely engaging, and has fallen well-short of its potential, but this issue manages to stand out as one of its better installments. Read Full Review

    Damage #8 adds a new character into the mix, but otherwise doesn't do anything we haven't seen in the series so far. Read Full Review

    With every new issue, Damage is growing on me more and more. He may not be as good as Silencer and The Terrifics, but it's a solid read with its own backstory, always expanding. If you've been reading Damage for a while, you expect what you're signing for this month. If you don't, well, why not giving the big guy a try? Despite rocky beginning, he's establishing himself in the DC universe and becoming his own thing.

    good art, and the story is finally starting to almost maybe make a bit of sense. I was close to dropping it before this issue, but... I'll give it another issue or so.

    mostly because I'm interested in the Unknown Soldier :)
