    Despite the pitch-black noir tone of the book, this does in many ways feel true to the odd family vibe of the JLI, and it's part of why this is going to go down as another classic in King's library. Read Full Review

    Smallwood delivers some beautiful art on every page. The unique style of the art brilliantly emphasizes the characters while also giving the reader a great sense of the world of the story and the emotions of the characters within it.  Read Full Review

    More brutal than the previous issues, The Human Target #8 is a little hard to read as it's mostly Chance being tortured, losing conciousness, waking up later and having events repeat. Read Full Review

    The Human Target #8 tells an exciting story about a visit from another JLI member, but the series appears to be going nowhere. Come for Smallwood's stellar art, but the story, much like Christopher Chance, is simply waiting for the end. Read Full Review

    Human Target hasnt improved since its return and remains as frustrating and flawed a series as it was before its hiatus. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this issue felt like wasted time... which may have been the point. Falling back into old habits sucked all the energy out of this comic. Read Full Review
