    AIPT - Alex McDonald Jul 6, 2021

    A fantastic first issue that ticks every box. It introduces the characters, premise, themes, tone, and it does all that while maintaining an enthralling story. There's no attack of the world-building, nor is there any heel-dragging exposition. It's just a really good comic book. Read Full Review

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Jul 9, 2021

    Wendell Cavalcanti creates some cool character designs from Strummer's punk rock style to Ben's chill laid-back attire. The action is sparse but well choreographed. Cavalcanti's thick lines put the emphasis on the foreground characters and shading helps fill out backgrounds. Overall, 'Black's Myth' is a cool confident L.A. mystery filled with intrigue and supernatural action. It's one of this week's recommendations and that cliffhanger will have you back next month.  Read Full Review

    The premiere issue of this Scout series does an excellent job of needling the reader along, dropping just enough information in revealing the world of these supernatural gumshoes to hook readers in. Read Full Review
