After the bleak ending of Volume 7, I could say that Volume 8 was a bit lighter except it does deal with the aftermath of the previously mentioned bleak ending. I did like the take on the tragedy and how it affected everyone in the family differently. There was a bit of a detour with Hazel “playing” with her little brother, but we knew that had to come to an end eventually.
I still find everything about King Robot fascinating, even though he has major issues. I enjoyed the brief interlude with The Will and I was thrilled to see Ghus again.
This one ended on a pretty hopeful note and I can’t wait to see what comes next from Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples.
