While still processing her feelings about Councilor Marth, Jo tracks down the “riders” who killed Averrup Thorn, and gets the first hint of what’s really going on beneath the surface of the City Enduring.

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 6, 2020

    When all is said and done, Far Sector #8continues to deliver a magnificent story. It both resolves the previous issues cliffhanger and setups up the next storys plot. All this while delivering all the power and emotion you could ask from a powerful lead character. With only four issues left to go, this story has me itching to enter the final leg of the journey.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Oct 6, 2020

    Far Sector is an amazing series, one of the best of the year. Far Sector #8 delivers another chapter in a police procedural that's infused with socio-politico commentary. This is a series that's "in the now," not afraid to tackle current issues and real-world discussions. Most importantly, it entertains while doing so. With each issue, the series makes the case for "best of 2020." Read Full Review
