    Coffin Hill #8 is a great return for the comic, really getting off on the right foot for this new arc. The storyline and subplots are intriguing, the characters are interesting as usual, the writing is solid, and the artwork is beautiful at points. It really gets me excited to see where the comic is going with this new storyline and I honestly hope it continues to get better and better. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jun 16, 2014

    With pretty much the whole issue centered around Eve taking this detective case, there's really not much else going on. In many ways, it's a very standard detective story, but with a few supernatural twists, though those are largely relegated to the backseat while the actual detective work is put front and center. This issue is really a great example of Kittredge's flexibility as a writer, seeing as she went from writing a horror story to writing a grounded crime story, and doing both pretty well. Inaki Miranda also illustrates her range as an artist here, as the setting completely changes from a small town to a big city. And while it still looks good, the city isn't characterized as well as Coffin Hill was in the first arc, and not using the setting as its own character is a noticeable downgrade from the first arc.

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras Jun 13, 2014

    Coffin Hill #8 is not without its issues. With most of its mistakes running through its poorly timed pacing, it pulls the reader out of the experience. That being said, it is a stronger contender in the series' history. With a powerful past scenario in place, more than likely it'll bleed over into the present day narrative, and it will strengthen the comic as a whole. Read Full Review
