    What makes Generation X so special is that writer Christina Strain can find the time to mention how annoying it is that Quentin Quire can pull off speedos without taking up vital space that'd be better served otherwise. Read Full Review

    Pinnas art & Felipe Sobreiros coloring did not blend in too well in some pages (especially when it was focused on the school and the park)Bling! still looks kind of like Bart Simpson in Pinna's styleRating: 8.9/10 The pacing of the story improved and is now finally moving forward. Strain did not waste the opportunity to integrate the character relationships she had built in previous issues which now adds an interesting perspective to the main plot. It definitely was also great to see Gen X classic characters being featured i.e. Husk and D.O.A. Things are definitely getting interesting and might potentially re-capture the skeptical fans attention and alongside the loyal readers, keep both excited on how things will unfold in the next issues to come!

    With a refocus and the elephant in the room being addressed effectively, Generation X #8 makes the series feel refreshed and finally a book worthy of the original run's place in fans hearts. Winning me over, I'm excited to see just where Generation X goes in the future. Read Full Review

    "Generation X" #8 brings equal parts weird, X-Men and drama to hold the book together as one of the most delightful series to emerge from the ResurrXion. Read Full Review

    Still undecided on Gen X, I'm enjoying the personal relationships and the characters are an interesting mix with potential, but sometimes the art is a bit jarring, especially the with Quentin, Ben, and Nathaniel, will continue to follow as its getting better over time tho.

    Roxy gets unwelcome counsel, Monet exists, and a surprise guest for Quentin Quire causes a catastrophe, typical. It's a good thing Christina Strain keeps the students entertaining, because this issue's script does very poorly at advancing the plot. Random crap happens, but at least we like the characters it happens to and their reactions to it. Amilcar Pinna's art has slid into an unfortunate groove: It's getting cleaner and prettier, but also thereby less distinctive.

    Generation X #8 is nothing spectacular. It's just an average comic. For a supposed spotlight on Monet, there's hardly any of her in the comic. Roxy's uncertainty about her future isn't the most appealing thing to read. The other bits of plot we get were much more interesting, which is unfortunate, since this was more like a Roxy spotlight than anything. What little we get of Monet was unsettling and creepy, and I enjoyed that quite a bit. The art is a bit too rough, as it has been in the previous issues but it didn't distract as much in this issue.
