    Batman: Urban Legends #8 continues to be quite the playground for all things Batman-related. I must admit that all this "Future State" and "Fear State" hopping around has become a bit tiresome as I expect comics like this to have some "sand' that fills in the main stories in the pillar books. However, three of the four stories really piqued my interest. Admittedly, I am not a Pyg fan" however, if you put him in the pages of Spawn, well" you may have something there!

    This is a good collection as each story varies wildly, digs into the minds of different kinds of characters, and offers up the beginning to multiple tales. Much like the entire series, Batman: Urban Legends #8 continues to shine a light on lesser-used characters with strong results.

    Punch and emotion collide perfectly, and this story promises. Let's see how much of the nuance can be translated into the page.

    This wasn't wall-to-wall greatness this time around, but what is here is definitely worth a look.

    Batman Urban Legends #8 is another mixed bag of sound art and okay stories. Whether you like it or not will depend on your character and creative team tastes, but that's how anthologies go. However, the Outsiders story could have a huge impact on the DCU, so it's something to check out.
