    This issue starts out like a heist movie but ends up being what the book was intended to be, a supernatural horror comic, one that has elevated the DC brand. The story by Wolfman feels like a Hammer Horror movie but with superheroes. He knows these characters intimately and wants the reader to be just as invested. The art by Mhan is gorgeous. Altogether, an excellent installment in this miniseries which should really be an ongoing series. Read Full Review

    Under the steady writing done by Marv Wolfman, the story of RAVEN: DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS #8 progresses well. For instance, when Klarion is introduced, it's done quickly but not to where you feel the story is rushed. Pop Mhan's artwork delivers a beautiful and mystifying version of Raven's spirit.

    The normalized LGBT representation and the interaction of the young heroes here make this a very entertaining read, and I'm hoping the last arc keeps the focus on this new dynamic. Read Full Review

    Its a superfluousdepiction, because yeah, their gay, we already got it. Its not that I have any issue with the LGBTQ community (I honestly dont consider other peoples' sexuality any of my business). But I DO object to comic book writers and artists whose imagination is so limited, their best means of portraying a homosexual character is to depict a same-sex kiss. In my opinion, it's superfluous. The point was already made that Robert was gay, so in my opinion, the kiss is superfluous and gratuitous. Read Full Review

    Much easier to follow than prior issues... unfortunately, that doesn't make the story any more interesting.  If you're buying this for Raven, you're going to be disappointed. Read Full Review

    There are too many moving parts, too many questions, and things simply move too fast to have a solid understanding for what's going on. Read Full Review
