    The Daily Fandom - Kyle Scher Sep 25, 2019

    Criminal #8 was the issue I have been waiting for and it proved to be worth the wait. It was fascinating to finally get a glimpse at the messed up mental state of Jane. The Cruel Summer story arc will continue on for a while and is shaping out to be one the series best. Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips, and Jacob Phillips are one hell of a creative team. Read Full Review

    #8 evokes Pynchon in the way it reminisces and meditates on how the times change and yet stay the same. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Chase Magnett Sep 25, 2019

    Criminal #8 is one long exercise in foreshadowing and constructing tension. While each issue of the current arc has focused on an individual connected to the upcoming heist, the time spent with Jane here is as much about what is to come as what is currently occuring. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Beau Q. Sep 30, 2019

    Visually representing security, danger, and death with coloring choices is one of the many ways "Criminal" #8 keeps pace with the series at-large in a seemingly wheel-spinning issue, but this is "Criminal" where nothing is so simple. Read Full Review
