    Black Lightning Year One is a must read for anyone with even the slightest interest in the Black Lightning character. Van Meter, Hamner and Martin are crafting a truly fantastic superhero book, and when all is said and done, it very well might stand as the best Black Lightning story to date. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Feb 22, 2009

    All in all, not too bad of an issue, since it is the same creative team throughout, the same praise will hold through the series unless the art suddenly goes in the toilet because of scheduling issues, or if the series has a drastic and sudden ending that makes no sense. Black Lightning Year One is a good series. There's drama, thugs, magic, guest appearances by well known figures, fighting, and a bit of romance (even if it falls apart in this issue), to earn issue #4 3.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
