Robyn and Marian's latest case has gotten really messed up, really quickly. While Robyn is at the mercy of a cult of trust fund kids bent on sacrificing her to an ancient monstrosity, Marian finds herself on the run from a powerful witch. Meanwhile, the Cabal put the finishing touches on a plot to bring New York City to its knees.

    Robyn Hood #8felt a little slower than usual. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty of action for both of our lovely ladies, but it wasn't as entertainingly action packed as usual. I have every confidence that this was an anomaly, or a prelude to main events, if you will, so I wouldn't necessarily call it a bad thing. Every comic needs to slow things down every now and again. Maybe this is the calm before the storm, and if next month's preview is anything to go by, it's going to be one hell of a storm. Read Full Review

    A decent outing, with a good story but only adequate art. Read Full Review

    The artwork in this issue is pretty average at best. Some of the character expressions feel lifeless, but the artists do a solid job depicting the street brawls Read Full Review

    Geekality - Ryan Marshall Mar 18, 2015

    Overall there was a nice even balance and structure with this issue. It wasnt overly busy with plot points shooting like Robyns arrows left, right and center. Something that has felt to have been out of place in previous issues were the inclusion of breakaway scenes involving The Cabal, in the past they may have been there to plant seeds and stir mystery and intrigue but they didnt make any sense until the brilliant epilogue. We do see what they are intending to unleash. The Cabal still continue to be cryptic as they always been with their covert illuminati vibe, but their storyline is showing signs of starting to pay off. Also seeing two powerful figures in the Grimm universe are in league with The Cabal just generates even more interest, who they are is far too good to spoil. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Mar 20, 2015

    There are some good moments in this issue, but in the end it doesn't really have what it takes. Robyn's ability to overcome the demon cult is fun, and so too are parts of Marian's battle, but the problem here is mainly one of storytelling. The story bounces back and forth without much reason and it leaves the reading somewhat choppy. This issue would have been better off choosing one focus and not two, and letting the story be told in a more logical manner. Frustratingly, this issue shows that the series has what it takes, only that the storytelling let it down here, mixing with the narrative in a way that didn't do justice to what lay within.

    I don't exactly know how to take Avella's return. Actually I sort of wish she would join Robyn and Marian. I don't know if that will happen. But I think the Cabal is bigger than Robyn is anticipating, so she may need some help from Myst or anywhere she can get it. Shand doesn't do anything small, so I wouldn't be surprised if this was an all-out war when the Cabal finally enter the picture. Either way I'll be there reading. Robyn Hood has got me hooked. Reading this comic every month makes the week that much sweeter. Read Full Review
