"MOONFLOWER," Part Three-Ernie has gotten himself into a mess. He has managed to join every spy group on Earth, pretzeled his double cross into a triple cross, and on top of everything else, he hasn't heard a thing other than crunchy, neo-hippy music since he got to the moon. Something has to give.

    Caffeinated Critique - James Stone May 19, 2021

    I've said it once and I'll say it again, this is the best issue of the series so far. It's its own mini story in itself which does need the buildup from previous issues to create the full picture but executed brilliantly so anyone can enjoy. Action packed, blood thirsty and nudity all wrapped up in one crazy and awesome comic. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 19, 2021

    The story is a lot of crazy fun. Writer Rick Remender is really cutting loose and it shows on every single page. The art is something special in this series as well. This issue is pretty damn good as well on that front. Read Full Review

    If you are into something really really different and you like uncomfortable clashes, this is your book. You'll laugh and wince and roll your eyes. Get in on the ground floor of Scumbag! A Ernie Ray says " You people don't know how to party. You hate me because I do!" If you want to catch up, be on the lookout for the trade paperback Cocaine Finger. That tells you all you need to know right there! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 19, 2021

    Ernie's been through so much that it's kind of strange to think that it's only been eight issues so far. Remender seems to have quite a serial mapped-out that involves a character arc that seems a hell of a lot more coherent than a guy like Ernie seems to be capable of. A story like this could keep going with further developments for a very, very long time. Ernie's got a lot of potential, and Remender clearly has a sharp understanding of the kind of pacing needed to go the distance with a reluctant hero. Read Full Review

    There are some good looking pages contained in The Scumbag #8; they don't have a story or sense of humor to support what style exists on the page, though. Read Full Review
