    Kambadais delivers fantastic art throughout the issue. I love the visual style and how it not only showcases the animation roots of the story, but also the feel of movement and action throughout. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 26, 2023

    The TV series may have only run for a very brief time back in the 1990s, but there WERE 78 episodes in total. A comic book series would take quite a few issues to make up the kind of ground that the TV series did. Weisman is doing a solid job of laying out everyone in the ensemble and moving them through the motions on the page, but Gargoyles has a pretty large cast of characters, so its going to take a WHILE to get the momentum running on the series. Its nice to see it off to such a solid start, though. Read Full Review

    While Gargoyles #8 doesn't do much to advance the plot, both Goliath and Coldfire get a substantial amount of character work. Read Full Review

    Comical Opinions - Gabriel Hernandez Aug 3, 2023

    GARGOYLES #8 delivers a mix of Coldfire backstory, a discovery that puts the gang war plan in jeopardy, and an unwelcome visit from an old enemy. The arcs plot doesnt move forward enough to keep the momentum up, but Coldfires flashbacks make for a good primer on the character. The art ranges from fine to serviceable. Read Full Review
