    The comic's team has managed to jettison Skyward towards one intriguing twist, and fans won't be able to put the issue down. Read Full Review

    Joe Henderson continues to write a story that completely freaks me out, but I just can't put down. If zero gravity and large bugs wasn't weird enough for this sci-fi adventure, the fact that bugs pushed themselves to the top of the food chain breaks the little normalcy this world had left. After bugs fed off of livestock and humans source of food, they became the prime meal of every day life. I mean, I've heard of chocolate covered crickets, but eating dragonflies and only God knows what else for your entire life?! Gross. But civilians have no clue. I think it would probably be for the best. Read Full Review

    Willa is definitely trying her hardest to survive and stick to her mission. However, if this issue has a theme, it's trust and learning who to put faith in. I do think Edison has more than earned her trust and you can see the strain on their relationship as she continues to hide the fact that she wants to fix the world's gravity. I understand that she feels like her mission would hurt him but he's come this far. As the story moves on, the ending leaves a lot of choices for Willa. Eventually, she is going to have to let someone in on her secret and trust that they can help her. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Pashtrik Maloki Nov 13, 2018

    Joe Henderson manages to pack in quite a surprise with the ending of this issue thanks to the subverted trope. It's a really nice moment, one that keeps the reader hooked and moves the story forward in some unexpected ways. Looking forward to next month's issue! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Daniel Clark Nov 15, 2018

    Skyward #8 is a natural resting stop for the series as we get an issue settling in for the next major arc. We learn more about these mysterious farmers and the secrets they have been hiding including a major cliffhanger that was legitamly unexpected. While it may not be as bold as the previous issues there are elements being built that can lead to some major payoffs. Even when things slow down it finds a way to be original. Read Full Review

    I hope that despite the sells Image will stick a little longer with this title. It was another fantastic reading.
    You thanked you know what will happen, they will show you how you are wrong.
    Festival we learn rapidly that the human eat bugs without knowing it. This is smart because that explain a lot of thing that could have been problematic without this. And This is smart to see how human can be resourceful and without mercy.
    I feel for Emerson when Willa and him argue. I understand both character, but I'm a little sad for Emerson.
    In the same time, I didn't approve that he sneak on Willa paper.
    And this seen as another not very surprising effect make willa more close to the farmer leader. And I was so sure to what more
