Aphrodite IX #8 Review

Matt Hawkins continued to do a great job with this issue, generating some intriguing development for the current story, whilst also building up more mystery at the same time. What I loved most from the issue was the way that Hawkins built the suspense, as with Aphrodite entering Speros there was always going to be some sort of conflict. Hawkins also continued to build the characteristics perfectly, having Marcus yet again make a background appearance, as well as teasing more about a new character. On top of this there was some amazing action with there also being a tremendous cliffhanger as well.

Stjepan Šejic also doesn't fail to impress with his artwork being as magical as ever. Šejic has proved over the last few issues that he's a very dexterous, going from a phenomenal style to a new style which appeals to me even more with every new issue. Either way the detail is never in question, always being to a high standard, and looking simply beautiful. Added to that the superb layouts and stunning colours and it's hard to think of many artists who are at the same level of quality as Šejic.
