    Black Terror #1 is a fantastic start to a series with a lot of potential. It's witty, smart, and just an all-around good time. I'm already casting Simon Pegg in my head as the guy I'd love to see play Bob Benton in a TV series. If you love stories like Watchmenor The Death-Defying Devil, you'll love this book.

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Sep 25, 2019

    Black Terror is a fascinating twist on the usual caped vigilante formula. Despite his wish to just be normal, Black Terror cannot avoid what he has become and will have to suffer the consequences of what amounts to the debilitating affliction and chronic addiction of superpowers.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Oct 2, 2019

    At the end of Black Terror #1, did this first issue meet expectations as a new reader? It did and then some. I found myself understanding this character in a way that I didn't before. We got to know him as Black Terror, and as the man who tried desperately to draw a line in the sand between the two. What comes next is going to be a thrill, because it's impossible for a Golden Age hero to truly leave it all in the past. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Oct 7, 2019

    While the excessive use of inner monologue is a drag, this is a solid comic about a fun piece of comic book history, especially if you're a fan of the Golden Age of Comics. Read Full Review

    Black Terror doesn't break the wheel, but it does bend it in favor of a new take on an old hero. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 4, 2019

    If you don't know who the Black Terror is, writer Max Bemis and artist Matt Gaudio's new series probably won't endear you to the old pulp hero. Read Full Review
