    Claremont knows how to tell a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end. Even as this issue closes with a cliffhanger, we feel satisfied that we read something that had a clear vision, not just an amalgamation of plot devices and hype. I like how Nauck styles Ziggy, and how Rosenberg colors the scene when Ziggy works on the Blackbird with a warm, sunset glow. This is a fun and beautiful book by a creative team unswayed by modern comics' tired trends. Read Full Review

    I want to like "Nightcrawler," I really do, but the hand-wringing and navel-gazing needs to take a back seat so Claremont and Nauck can add depth to the breadth of the surrounding cast of characters they are adding to Kurt Wagner's life. "Nightcrawler" #8 spends less time doing that and too much time pushing the boundaries out while disregarding obvious concerns readers are sure to find in a story where telepaths are overpowered too easily. It's time for Nightcrawler to be heroic, on his own terms and finding his own path. Right now, reacting and conforming to the actions of other characters limit both him and the series.
