BIONICLE #8: Legends of Bara Magna is the first truly original BIONICLE graphic. Whereas the past seven have been complete collections of the older comics (save for #6, which had Hydraxon's Tale added to it), this one consists of three new stories:

The Fall and Rise of the Skrall, a story detailing the Skrall's first encounter with the mysterious baterra and what caused them to move south to the Bara Magna desert and attempt to conquer the six Agori villages; The Exile's Tale, which features how the Glatorian Malum got exiled from the village of Vulcanus and how he ended up taking over a tribe of Vorox; and All Our Sins Remembered, a story that covers the Core War and the Shattering, two events that shaped Bara Magna into what it is today. All three stories are very well done.

The artist for the first two stories is Christian Zanier, who previously did the artwork for Hydraxon's Tale in BIONICLE #6: The Underwater City. His art is incredibly detailed and looks extremly, well, cool, in my opinion. His best work for BIONICLE so far appears in The Fall and Rise of the Skrall. Very well-drawn and captures the atomosphere of the story quite well.

The artist for the third and final story, All Our Sins Remembered, is Stuart Sayger, who was the artist of the BIONICLE comics for 2006-2007. Although I do not like his art style nearly as much as Zanier's, I think Sayger has gotten better at drawing BIONICLE characters. He works well with close-ups, I think, and he drew the Element Lords pretty well, too, in my opinion. He's kind of a controversial artist among BIONICLE fans for his darker, less detailed style, but he's got his fans and I can see why some would call him their favorite BIONICLE artist.

I made the mistake of not reading some of the other reviews; don't do the same! The binding falls apart in one to two days. This is a total shame. The kids love these books and I didn't pay attention to which ones were paperback and which were hardback. The one hardback that I purchased (book #9) seems to be holding up well, and I wish I had purchased all of them as hardbacks. In fact I consider the lost money as a lesson in reading reviews and item descriptions. The kids love these books so much, I have since purchased them again but in hardback of course. In summary, do not buy the paperback!

A very nice comic to add to the Bionicle story. This particular one focuses on the Glatorian, giving some back story to the fourth movie. The only downside is that the binding isn't very strong. If not careful the pages can tare out after the first read. I find the hard cover version better, and worth the extra dollars. Don't bother buying unless it's the hard cover book, and any Bionicle fan would like this.

I love the additional details that this book provides, such as the Battera and the Element Lords. Wonderful expanded universe.
