I think we can all agree what the prevalent mood is these days, and why the hell not? The world seems to be taking a turn for the worse . . . so we let sixteen of the world’s leading comic creators and more than thirty of the very best illustrators take the theme for a whirl, hoping they would shed some light.
The thing that I find irresistible about it is the sheer volume and variety of material on offer: a kaleidoscope of art styles, ideas and approaches… —Zainab Akhtar, Comics and Cola
The comics in Nobrow 8 take you deep into psychological realms in keeping with the “hysteria” theme, but like any good anthology, posing the subject matter gives the artists an opportunity to display for the record the virtually endless variety of concepts a single word can prompt. —Bleeding Cool
Removing this comic from its packaging reminded me of the first time I picked up a copy of Read Yourself Raw in a university bookshop as a teenager ? the same heady rush of holding a volume that felt, and smelled, as good as it looked. A book designed as a piece of art in and of itself. —Robot 6
Something of a manic publication ? but not stressful manic, manic as in your eyeballs are at a party. Much better. —It’s Nice That
Printed with 4 spot colors, Nobrow 8 has an unusual color palette but it’s one which works quite well, tying the work of all 45 artist together nicely. It’s occasionally quite bold and brash, but considering the ‘hysteria’ theme this works quite well. —The Fox Is Black
