As the detective digs deeper into the mystery behind Rorschach and his sidekick, the story becomes about not what they wanted to do but why they started on their murderous path. As more witnesses emerge, the stranger Laura’s history is revealed to be. Tough times made her want to kill a presidential candidate, and she did a lot of damage herself when fighting back.

    Rorschach #8 seems somewhat paradoxical, as although the detective is learning more details about the attempted assassination of Turley, the mystery somehow gets murkier instead of clearer. This title nothing like you would expect from a Watchmensequel, but is absolutely brilliant anyways. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 20, 2021

    Rorschach #8 is yet another brilliant chapter of a brilliant book. King has done a great job of giving this book a reason to exist- its one of the most vital and important comics being published right now, using Watchmen and its mystery to talk about how conspiracies and lies can poison people. Fornes does a marvelous job with the art, capturing the insanity and mundanity of the whole thing. Rorschach is a wonderful book, and this is another perfect chapter. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Zac Owens May 11, 2021

    DC Comics' RORSCHACH #8 is an incomplete picture. It taunts us with the information we don't have while overloading us with information that doesn't fit. This creative team impresses upon us what it feels like to look for the truth in a sea of misinformation. They use their ordered, clean storytelling to show us the chaos beneath the surface.

    AIPT - Christopher Franey May 11, 2021

    Rorschach #8 is another great issue that adds to the mystery and gives you a lot to think about between issues, fantastic art that makes you question the reality of the situation, and a major puzzle that is begging to be solved. This is building my hype, so I can't wait till we start getting some answers. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai May 12, 2021

    Rorschach #8 isnt the best issue of the series, but does serve as a good filler to get us to the next part of the mystery. Tom King, Jorge Forns, Dave Stewart and Clayton Cowles continue to intrigue as the mystery draws to a close. Read Full Review

    I just am not a fan of this weird trend of using actual comics creators as fictional characters, especially when they are being dragged out of their house or murdered by police. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS May 11, 2021

    Excellent series but this issue is a waste. It'll take you way too long to read it and by the end, you're going to feel cheated out of your time. You find out one little thing and that's it. Read Full Review
