    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Nov 18, 2014

    Solar: Man of the Atom continues to be an epic space adventure, with the bonding between father and daughter giving an engaging tone. It also delivers some fun, and exciting moments, with Erica's kindness being a beacon of light. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Another good issue that doesn't live up to the fun of previous issues, but sets up what could be a really awesome conclusion for Erica as she tries to make her way back to Earth. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 19, 2014

    I've been digging the Solar series from the start, though I will say that it, like a few other titles from Dynamite these days, feels like it's meandered a bit and is without enough focus for its story arc. That's something that I wonder if it reads better when in trade form or not. This issue starts pushing us back towards Earth after another alien encounter involving a prior mess from Phil, but the focus is more on Erica and how she really is the positive to his negative in a lot of ways. I like Erica and want to see more of her, but part of me also wants to get a handle on what it is that Phil's done and accomplished since he changed. Hopefully bringing us back to Earth, even with the company that will inevitably follow, we get something that can start grounding things a bit and to start exploring some of the bigger themes here in addition to family. It's a solid series that just comes across as really needing a goal to it to rally around for readers. Read Full Review

    Solar: Man of The Atom #8 serves as the defining issue that really separates the kind of person Phil is and the type of hero Erica is by the ending analysis of Erica by the robot. Now all that is left to wonder from this issue is Read Full Review

    Geekality - Warren Fitzpatrick Nov 19, 2014

    Its an interesting take on the character, so if you like Solar, youll probably be good with this. Barbieres work is inconsistent, but when its good, its very good, so he may be someone to watch. Getting in on the ground floor of his career and seeing the development could contain some great moments. And Laus work is excellent, so if you like solid artwork (and who doesnt), he wont let you down. Read Full Review

    Overall, this has been a very middle-of-the-road read. Read Full Review
