These eight super-powered primates were once the greatest fighting force known to man, and the Earth's truest defenders. Having disbanded after averting an apocalyptic event, these heroes are supposed to be leading "normal" lives. But when a forgotten evil returns, they must try to recapture their former glory--and decide if they even should.

    “Prime-8′s” may seem a little silly at first, and that's because it is. It wears that goofiness on its sleeve and runs with it, all the while managing to tell a respectable, though well trodden, superhero drama. More than anything, “Prime-8′s” is a fun comic, a call back to an earlier time while remaining perfectly suited for modern audiences of any age. Furthermore, as a full length comic (by modern standards) priced at a measly $0.99, “Prime-8′s” puts nearly every Big-Two book, and even some of its indie contemporaries, to absolute shame. There's literally no reason not to check this book out. Read Full Review

    I really don't think that it's going to hurt anyone to pick up this first issue. Just check it out for the sake of trying to find something new. You may not like it as much as I did, but I wasn't sure that I was going to like it at all. I was surprised by it and maybe you will be too. Read Full Review

    It will be interesting to learn more about the series and the characters as the story progresses. Moreci and Seeley definitely have made some interesting choices right from the start. Currently it is not quite clear why the team is made to be primates. While anthropomorphizing is not new, it usually serves a purpose. Additionally, the era that the book evokes through its art and plot structure also feels incredibly deliberate. All of that is to say that Prime-8s #1 has a lot to offer and packs in a good bit of intrigue both for the direct plot as well as the pieces lying just beneath the surface. Read Full Review
