    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 14, 2021

    Champions #8 is a stunning issue for character development. One of the best aspects of Lores writing is that they treat the target audience with the respect they are owed. Some comics directed at teens can feel patronising or out of touch. Yet Champions recognises their intelligence with large amounts of dialogue filled with drama. The art makes this comic a delight to look at whilst the themes add a powerful emotional depth. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 22, 2021

    Champions continues to deliver high-quality deeply emotional character-driven work wrapped up in an energetic and emotive and gorgeous artistic package. Every bit of the issue is heavy in the best way possible with the history, relationships, traumas, hopes, dreams, and plans of these teenage superheroes showcasing just how much the creative team knows and cares about them. Children are the future, and this book is exactly what the present and future of good superhero comics should aspire to be like. Read Full Review

    All of the pieces are in place for a really strong series, from good characters, solid writing and some nice, unique art, but I just don't find the subject matter and the story being told all that interesting. Read Full Review

    The latest arc is able to step things up since the unfortunate "Outlawed" but still has a long way to go before it can become one of Marvel's best books. Read Full Review
