The Freedom Fighters have set their sights on an endgame with the fascist regime of Hitler II, but to achieve ultimate victory, one of their own must confront his darkest demons. In the factory city of Detroit, Nazi slave labor camps have made life a living hell-and the one and only person to ever escape, Black Condor, must return home for the very first time to retrieve our heroes' only hope for victory.

    Nothings convinced me in the slightest that Freedom Fighters shouldnt be an ongoing title. Theres too much to unfold and Venditti really seems like hes just getting started. This is my monthly encouragement to try out one of DCs strongest maxi-series to help make it a continuing title. Read Full Review

    It's a real joy to feel the character of the Black Condor come alive in Freedom Fighters #8. This powerhouse of character exploration easily overpowers any shortcomings of the plot movement or scope of the issue. The intimacy of Condor's story makes this an issue you'll want to read. I have a feeling it will fit into the pacing of the full 12 issues marvelously, even though on it's own it's a little unsatisfying plot-wise. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 28, 2019

    With some excellent art and the idea that our heroes might not prevail by the end of this series, this issue really brought on the doom and gloom....... you know, beyond for the normal "Nazis rule the world" doom and gloom, but the tension was taken away because of the cliffhanger to last issue that put us in the know more than the characters so the whole time you're just waiting for the other shoe to drop and when it does, it doesn't feel all that big.  Still an enjoyable issue, but I hope for me next month.

    That's the big problem with this series overall " there's an endless sense of hopelessness that makes it rather hard to read. For a series like this to work, we have to believe that the heroes are going to win. So far the heroes don't feel like they have things together enough for the rebellion to be a compelling opposition, but Black Condor's story is the closest we've gotten. Read Full Review

    It's a reverse-Icarus tale, one where the flight of a son results in the punishment of his parents. That makes for an excellent, if broad, metaphor for the ways in which parents sacrifice to help future generations overcome oppression. Read Full Review
