    Black Manta continues to be a stylishly gorgeous exploration of not just the title villainous character but also a variety of very pressing real-world issues told through the lens of superhero fantastical worlds. There aren't many books on the stands like Black Manta coming from the big publishers, which makes it stand out even more and mean so much more. This is a must-read book. Read Full Review
