    Between Montclare'sability to draw readers back in the story without retracing the previous arc and Amy Reeder's deft handling of the different emotional situations, this issue is a solid return to theRocket Girlseries. There's no concern here with sluggishness or retracing of events.Rocket Girl #8 is an action-packed reminder that this series is a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 2, 2017

    Rocket Girl#8 has plenty of action, and Amy Reeder cuts loose with beautiful, streamlined flying sequences and intense argument. Dayoung belongs in a utopian future, but is stuck in our crappy past. Brandon Montclare and Reeder really build up the overarching threat of Quintum Mechanics in the issue and set up a difficult time-spanning, uphill climb of a throwdown for Dayoung, Gomez, and their allies.

    Amy Reeder's wizardry with colors and details makes every panel a visual treat. However, Rocket Girlhas yet to show, rather than tell, Quintum Mechanics' evil depths with any convincing urgency. While Rocket Girlmight be absorbed better in a collected volume rather than isolated issues, this latest chapter fails to add emotional weight or plot cohesion. Read Full Review
