    X-Men #8 continues to build on the relationships of the team members and develops trust among them. Read Full Review

    Another issue where not a lot happens, but we do get a nice little story involving MODOK & AIM, two factions of Marvel universe we dont see interacting with the X-Men. We also get to see Everetts motivation for joining the team, and that was very disappointing. Hopefully theres more to come with Synch, because the character and the fans deserves more than that.

    After 8 issues, Duggan is finally starting to hit his stride and equipping the narrative with a better balance that this reviewer is becoming accustomed to. However, there are just a few aspects and character beats that just didn't jive with the reviewer this week. That said, X-MEN is still in a pretty good place. And given more time, I think Duggan will truly cultivate this series into something substantial. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Feb 18, 2022

    Overall this is a great issue- a strong story and fantastic art. However, there are a few weird and potentially offensive moments, and a strange series of stylistic choices in the art. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Lia Williamson Feb 16, 2022

    X-Men#8 might not be the most plot-heavy title in the series, but it rightfully uses this break from the main plot to shine a spotlight on its characters. Synch hopefully gets his first of many spotlight issues in the future, laying out the groundwork for an arc for his character. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Feb 16, 2022

    X-Men #8 has excellent small character moments and solid art but felt a little lackluster due to the choice of villain. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 23, 2022

    X-Men #8 sees an underused X-Man finally gets some use, but it's hard to say whether it's good use or not. It feels like Duggan has kind of invented this version of Synch from whole cloth, and it's not great. The plot is just sort of there and feels like an excuse to use MODOK. Pina's art looks great, even though Duggan doesn't give him a lot of action to draw. It's yet another disappointing issue in a book that's been full of them. Read Full Review
