A Quick Look at REBELS #8

Writer: Tony Bedard. Artist: Andy Clarke.

What Happened: This issue begins with Dox and his REBELS tracking down Dox's son, Lyrl. Lyrl tells the REBELS that his mother was killed by Dox's robot peacekeepers(who were taking orders from Starro). From there, Wildstar leaves the group to find Strata's husband and son. Meanwhile, the Khund try to launch an assault on the Dominator homeworld, which was conquered by Starro. The Khund assault fails miserably. The Omega Men, who were forced into an uneasy alliance with the Psions, are given phony Starro's to wear by the Psions. These fake Starro's are able to trick Starro into believing the Omega Men are under Starro's control. This issue ends with the Omega Men flying towards the homeworld of the Dominators, which now has a gigantic Starro covering half the planet.

What I thought: This series continues to impress me. Dox has easily become one of my favorite characters in all of comicdom. I honestly can't get enough of him and his attitude! The parts of this comic that featured Dox were golden(as always), plus the parts with the Omega Men and the Khund were extremely strong as well. I don't have anything to complain about here. Great story and dialogue plus beautiful artwork makes me a very happy individual.

Score: 9 out of 10.I love Dox and this series...
