    It's not a perfect issue, but its much better than what we've been getting. I look forward to the next issue, and I recommend this one for anybody looking for a jumping on point. Read Full Review

    This was definitely a great start to this creative team's run. I'm inclined to say it's new reader friendly, but I think that'll be more easily determined when the Ravagers actually show up next issue. Regardless, I think it's a nice change of pace and I look forward to what Nelson and Guara have planned next. Read Full Review

    As a Doom Patrol fan, I've been hopeful for clues to the New 52 appearance of the team and this book has offered the most consistent source of that hope, with appearances by Beast Boy and Niles Caulder. The art and story haven't always been easy to digest and, quite frankly, the book has been painful to continue with. When I saw the Pat Gleason cover solicited some time ago, it drew my attention to the text, which promised a new start of sorts for one of DC's lackluster "Second Wave" titles. While "Ravagers" #8 is far from an auspicious start, it is still far better than most of the previous seven issues. I'm hopeful that this new creative team is simply going through the storming part of their new working relationship and will soon find the norming phase. With that, maybe the book will become a readable series of adventures. If not, I would dare say "Ravagers" might soon be doomed, regardless of whether or not the Patrol ever materializes in these pages. Read Full Review

    So this is different then the other seven issues. The art of Ig is à nice change and give me à more 2000 feeling of comicart. The story has à nice twist so im wondering where this is going to
