    Though Strange Academy #8 isn't close to being something you can pick up and read on its own, it's a building block to a much steadier future. That is, of course, if the book can even manage to be more dynamite than it already is. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Feb 3, 2021

    Strange Academy #8 is another strong issue for this series. Each issue this series continues to grow on me and I am getting more and more invested as Skottie Young starts to focus in on different characters. I still think that there are too many new characters to try to get to know so fast, but Young has done a fantastic job these past two issues of focusing in on one or two of them. The space adventure story, while fun, didn't really add much besides adding a little levity to the issue. I hope Skottie Young keeps on this path and we get more in-depth with these characters as Strange Academy continues to move forward. He seems to be settling into his groove these past two issues.

    An equal blend of really good character storytelling and more generic wild magic adventure. Read Full Review

    Strange Academy is a fun book.You can easily start midway and have a decent understandingof what is taking place. The overall environment coupled with Youngs epic writing lendsitselfwell to a story about mystical teenagers. This book scratchesthat OG XavierInstituteandHogwartsitch. As soon as you are finished reading this review, go to your LCS, and pick up this issue. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 3, 2021

    When you bring it all together Strange Academy #8 delivers a strong emotional follow-up to a big story event, mixed with a well-implemented comical side story to keep things from getting too heavy. Young and company continue to craft a tale that is equal parts emotional, unique, and fun. Pure magic. Read Full Review
