    But Why Tho?

    Savage Avengers #8 is the most shocking issue so far. Its a non-stop battle that doesnt let you even realize how bleak it is until its over. Its a fearsome issue that doesnt hold back. This series is more than just a heavy metal ride now, it has emotional weight, and the characters are essential. But something is intoxicating about reading a Savage Avengers issue. The fact that anything is possible makes it freeing but completely unpredictable.

    Pepose writes like a man possessed like every issue is his last. Sure, the narration he provides is calm and eloquent while simultaneously directing a cataclysmic ballet of violent horror right before the reader's eyes. It's a juxtaposition that toys with your heartstrings and quickens your pulse. By the end of the issue, the reader should be exhausted and crestfallen left to wallow in what just took place wondering where the story goes next. As a fan, you couldn't ask for more of a creative team than what this team has done. 'Savage Avengers' is the best Marvel book published this year.

    SAVAGE AVENGERS #8 is the definition of "breakneck action," while allowing for smaller character moments that stay true to the mission of the book.

    You Don't Read Comics

    In short, Savage Avengers is the best comic you can find on the shelves that explores what happens if you slam a bunch of Marvel characters together like action figures. The ideas can sound insane, but the execution of those ideas is nothing short of magic.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    SAVAGE AVENGERS #8 is the latest issue in a series that delivers fun and compelling stories every month. The story balances character and action expertly while the art team realizes events that stop just short of delivering a gut punch. The one reservation I have is that this issue raises the stakes so high that a satisfying conclusion could be hard to achieve. But in any case, its the most incredible ending in the series so far. And for a series that never pulls punches–that's saying something.

    If you like tons of big ideas packed into a single issue, check out Savage Avengers #8. Characters literally die on the page, get reborn into new forms, and supervillains have their day in the sun too. That includes Doom 2099, who plays the part of a reluctant hero.

    The last page is clever…I mean really clever! This means I am going back to issues 1-7 and piecing this entire story together. And really…I cannot wait to see how this team “reassembles” itself back together! Pun intended!

    Doom versus Ultron. A piece of plot that feels like something out of either a rom com or an 80s action flick (choose your own adventure here) and pretty much back to back action full of robots and cyborgs and explosions. There's tragedy, a wild transformation and frankly your best bet with everything packed into this is to skip the dialogue (which is more than a little cheesy at times) and just read the narration. This a fun book, even if kind of the silliest Marvel might be putting out right now. There's not a lot of substance here, but there doesn't really need to be. This issue throws everything and the kitchen sink at its pages and it works.
