    Home SicK Pilots #8 brings a punk rock energy that's hard to resist. It has everything you could want, from an interesting backstory that helps humanize characters we've known for a while to the introduction of a new monster, and continues to increase the tension on the rising anxiety around Meg coming from Ami. There's a punk rock attitude to Home Sick Pilots on every page reminding us there's nothing straight-laced about it. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Aug 18, 2021

    Another excellent issue in a consistently good series, the excellent pairing of Watters and Wijngaard makes for some incredible storytelling. Such a unique concept which manages to keep surprising and delighting readers, it’s almost inevitable that once this series is finished it’ll find itself on many ‘best of’ comic lists. The story, the art, all of it is fantastic. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 18, 2021

    Things continue to fall apart beautifully in a series that seems to know exactly where the lines are and exactly how far it can go before it crosses any of them. The story is just familiar enough that it feels comfortable without being so familiar as to feel overly derivative. The color and chaos of the visuals are just powerful enough to feel overwhelming without desensitizing the reader to the story. Its all balanced so well. The challenge is to keep it balanced as the complexity of the story intensifies.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Brent Jackson Aug 19, 2021

    Home Sick Pilots #8 is another solid entry in the series. But, I wish it would lean a little more into the "campiness" of it all. I wish that "Power Rangers" vibe bled a little bit more through with the series. As much as I like the idea and most parts of the story it still just feels like it is missing a little something to make it great. Read Full Review
