    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Apr 23, 2014

    The art was great as usual and it's clear that some of the kids aren't willing to sit around passively anymore-they'll probably either want Lucas gone or Victoria gone, or possibly even worse. Tab's fury when she yells at Lucas and kicks him was very strong and surprising since she seemed mild-mannered. Things are spiraling into chaos thanks to Lucas, and if the kids can't trust Victoria as a leader, it'll be every man for themselves. In the situation and shape they're in, that's the last thing they should be doing. Read Full Review

    The MacGuffin - Matt LeMaire Apr 21, 2014

    SHELTERED is a great comic, with a fantastic story built on great character work and wonderful art, with issue #8 being no exception. Brisson, Christmas and Chankhamma have something special here and the narrative grows in intrigue with each passing issue. If you're not already picking up this book, what are you waiting for? Don't miss out before it all comes to and end! Read Full Review

    I continue to be impressed by the combination of Johnnie Christmas' art and Shari Chankhamma's color, I mean, just look at the noses, it's all about the noses! The way they glow warm from the cold environment, the lighting on them is just superb. Christmas is able to carry so much emotion in the facial characteristics, just look at wild-eyed Victoria trying to plead her case. I also really enjoyed the nuclear primer in the backmatter by Ryan K. Lindsay, which essentially debunks the realities of post-nuclear detonation. It's a crime that this book was not nominated for Best New Series in the Eisner Awards this year. #TeamVictoria Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Pennacchia Apr 23, 2014

    Sheltered #8 is mostly a between-peaks issue. Tension lingers and readers are left to wait until next month to see where the events of this issue will bring the cast. Nonetheless, chapter eight of Sheltered is as well written and drawn as the rest. Read Full Review
