    Legion of Super Heroes #8 was another fun read. Levitz continues to impress with his hard work on this title. If you are looking for a classic super hero team title then I highly recommend giving Legion of Super Heroes a try. This title combines quality action, strong plotting and solid character work all into one enjoyable package. Read Full Review

    I am a longtime Legion fan and Im thrilled to see the stories improving, but I dont know how much longer I can continue to be frustrated by the art. I only hope that sales increase on Adventure Comics when a well known and dynamic artist takes over, and that will lead the power at be to realize they need to make a similar move with this book.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 24, 2010

    This issue is very much on the cusp of being a Buy It book as the action was handled really well and there are some cool developments that go on as the plot inches forward. Unfortunately, accessibility issues do factor in heavily, as does the disappointingly shallow dialogue. Is it a fun read? Definitely. Is it something you need to run out and buy not? Probably not.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Dec 23, 2010

    Decent art cant make up for largely mediocre storytelling. This issue goes almost nowhere, and can be easily skipped without missing a beat. If the next installments dont lead the series in a consistent direction, then theres not much hope that this revived incarnation of the Legion will outlive its predecessors. Read Full Review
