    AVENGERS #8 is features simplistic, yet extremely important and artful storytelling, along with some incredible pages. It's issues like this that remind me why I love the Avengers so much. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 19, 2018

    There was great care shown in maintaining many of the personal animus that some of them share and I like that their working relationship continues to evolve as well. The dialogue was natural and none of the moments felt forced, which made the story flow really well and keep me interested to see where these dynamics would move next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 22, 2018

    Avengers #8 got the series right back on track. Throughout this issue Jason Aaron was able to establish the team dynamic and what role each member will play during his run. Along with the continued development around what the Celestials appearances revealed about Earth and Namor's sudden attack, Avengers #8 delivered on the high expectations for Aaron's run on this series.

    This is a great crossover book that will appeal to casual Marvel fans and regular readers alike. Not too serious, but not fluff either. It strikes the perfect balance. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 19, 2018

    A good issue even if it's almost all table setting. This team lineup is intriguing and is a lot of fun to read, especially with their new digs in a god damn Celestial. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 14, 2018

    A decent transition issue as the team relaxes and shows off their new headquarters to the reader. Several new plot threads are introduced, relationships strengthened and weakened, while the new baddie appears on the final page. Nothing too exciting, but plenty of information is given and teased.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Sep 21, 2018

    Honestly, I'd recommend this book just for the concept of BRODOK. Apart from that, Kelly Thompson writes a great character-driven comic that is full of laughs up until the last page. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Sep 20, 2018

    Avengers #8 slows down a bit to let us catch our breath between story arcs. The characters interacting carry the story, and the art is great. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Sep 19, 2018

    It’s a no from me, dawg. Not a hard one, but I just don’t think it’s worth the price of admission. Get it on sale if you’re that curious. Anyone seriously miffed by Aaron’s treatment of, say, Jennifer Walters will be happy to see that he’s at least not ignorant of the character’s usual being, but maybe he shouldn’t have waited until issue eight to say something. Some great visual performances help elevate the book, but visually it’s still not interesting enough to keep things healthy and above water. Especially if you’ve been wary of Aaron’s Avengers, hold off. Read Full Review
