    Imperiums Broken Angels IV: Something Greater Than Yourself ends the arc on a high note. Intelligent and entertaining, this books title proves prophetic for its characters on more than one level. Highly recommended read. Read Full Review

    Imperium #8 is a satisfying conclusion to the current story arc and Harada vs. Divinity. It gives more insight into Harada's mindset and how he truly views his actions compared to others, and also makes me anticipate the return of Divinity even more. And since the Foundation Zone is finally shown again the new characters' roles in it are starting to take shape, and returns the series to its engrossing roots. I don't know how the Vine Imperative will affect upcoming events in this series but after this story arc I can't wait to see it. Read Full Review

    Though it many not be as flashy or subject to as much fanfare as Valiant's other titles, Imperium #8 demonstrates that this series deserves a spot as one of the publisher's best. Read Full Review

    Villain Smash - Brady Steele Sep 2, 2015

    Imperium #8 feels like a warm up to a battle one of the big hitters isnt ready for yet. Dont get me wrong: this is a great tilt to start with. Trust me when I say this is one rematch that will epic down the line somewhere. On top of all that, there is another surprise hiding literally inside of one of the main players which was a fun reveal. This book continues to be a no-brainer for best book of the year so read it already. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Sep 2, 2015

    Imperium #8 is a solid end to shortly bringing back a character that many Valiant fans loved instantly from his recent mini series. Who knows if we'll see Divinity again till the next mini, but for now he has left his mark on Harada and Imperium as a series in a big way. Read Full Review

    AIPT - John F. Trent Sep 2, 2015

    Imperium #8 does a decent enough job of closing out the story arc. The battle of wills between Harada and Divinity is exceptional; however, the rest of the book doesn't measure up. It can be somewhat difficult to follow along with all of the time changes. Many of the non-Harada vs. Divinity panels are cluttered, requiring a second or even third look to figure out what is happening. That being said, the battle between Divinity and Harada is worth it and the epilogue is a great teaser setting up the next arc! Read Full Review

    The epilogue features a hook suggesting further development for Mech Major and a Vine infiltrator among harada's ranks, setting up the next story (called "The Vine Imperative") very nicely. Again, the Vine are ingtegral to this book's conflict and I love the connective tissue visible between this and other Valiant titles. Read Full Review
