    DC Comics News - Seth Singleton Oct 25, 2021

    Geoff Shaws art brings the characters in the story and even the characters on the roughly drawn yellow notepad pages to life with an emotional presence that channels the magic of powerful art. Dee Cunniffes colors are draped in hues, shades, and sublime subtlety. John J. Hills letters and design are on full display on the double-page spread that opens the book. The layout of every page from issue #1 until now is a visual take on the classic, Previously on, style that makes a great serial stand out. Read Full Review

    GWW - Jim Sep 28, 2021

    The world of crossover continues to leap forward and growing from strength to strength. And should be on every single comic book lover's list of must-reads. There is such a deeply character-driven story attached to this book that you will almost forget that this is a work of fiction and imagination. I simply cannot wait for the next issue and see where this ride is going to end up. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Sep 29, 2021

    Crossover #8 is yet another fantastic issue of one of the most fascinating books on the market. Cates nails every page, and Shaw and Cunniffe nail every panel. As far as opening issues go, this one succeeds at everything admirably. Sure, it isn't as brilliant as the Zdarsky issue it's better. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Sep 30, 2021

    Crossover #8 launches the new story arc "Meanwhile," shifting genres while expanding upon the series' metafictional elements. The book is now shifting from a quest storyline to a murder mystery, and I hope that the creators continue to experiment with the form and genreit's what makes this comic so exciting!

    It's easy to see how this could get into "jumping the shark-meta" territory in the not too distant future, but it's entertaining enough for the time being. Read Full Review
