Under the scrutiny of a most austere tutor, Becky works her way through the secrets of the forgotten arts, eventually becoming what she's destined (or doomed) to be. This and much, much more in The Magic Education of Becky Kumar.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 26, 2020

    Rebecca asserts herself and her power in an issue where shes finally in control of things enough to understand what she must do to learn. The simple rhythm of the plot seems to have followed Rebeccas mental state as she has fallen into a desire to focus herself and really study the forces that are so much a part of her life. Though the series has seen her through some pretty rough patches, Issue Eight feels like more of a closer walk with her than any other, which makes it the single most satisfying issue of the series thus far.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Cat Wyatt Aug 26, 2020

    Nomen Omen #8 is an interesting issue, showing dark and light elements all at once, while creatively dancing around heavier subjects. Throw in some brilliant artwork, and an intriguing cliffhanger, and this is a memorable issue. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Jan 1, 1970

    Overall this was a very creative issue, and the plot begins to thicken as both parties regroup, and recharge. Given a majority of the prior issues have been so well marinated in a chaotic energy, Bucci has deliberately slowed the story down, in order to build that tension back up again for the coming issues. A fantastic issue, and visually stunning work from Camagni. A really diverse story that's sure to spice up your comic haul! Read Full Review
