    It's all a bit raw and rough around the edges, but it's a powerful premise with a striking story to deliver. Read Full Review

    Again, the concept here is solid and at times compelling. It fits well within the story world that Osajyefo and Smith 3 are building. But there are moments and panels in this issue where the story is confounded by characters popping up out of nowhere or where the scene itself might benefit from some kind of exposition.

    All-Comic - Joshua Hilgenberg Apr 25, 2018

    Black Af: Widows and Orphans #1 is awesome; This is a series, and an entire universe, to keep an eye on especially for readers hungry for superhero comics outside of the traditional DC or Marvel book. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 29, 2018

    Black AF: Widows and Orphans #1 is a shaky first step for this new series in the Black AF universe. The generic ninja narrative isnt bad, but it doesnt stand out well either. The art and premise carry the book pretty far, but not as far as must-read territory. Feel free to check it out, and I can still recommend it on the basis that I expect this series to get better from here. However, as I said, its not required reading. Read Full Review
