    Not to be outdone, artist Scalera turns in a phenomenal issue, deftly managing the script's breakneck pace. His action sequences are always good, but here he delivers a master class in kinetic movement, Grant and Shawn's jetpack escape an exhilarating blend of dynamic angles and fluid design. He and colorist Moreno Dinisio do an equally fine job rendering the issue's quieter moments, showing a soft touch and cool palette when detailing Pia's troubled younger days. The issue's final pages show just how good this duo can be, and also make it clear that we can expect some even darker adventures to come. Bring it on. Read Full Review

    The deeper we go into the layers of The Onion, the deeper we go into the layers of our protagonists. An emotional knock out punch that adds more depth to an already thrilling adventure. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jonathan Bryant Apr 6, 2015

    Black Science #13 often feels like Rick Remender's take on a choose-your-own-adventure book, albeit one filled with exclusively bad endings. The series' thirteenth issue is a reminder of Grant's struggles to overcome his own universal constant"being a terrible father and husband. The darkest hour is just before the dawn, but sunrise has never seemed so far away. Read Full Review

    All told, "Black Science" #13 reminded me why I keep coming back to this series. It's rare to find a series that's as interested in the weird science as it is in the even weirder problem of raising a family, but "Black Science" tackles both. Read Full Review

    Black Science continues to be a worthy addition to anyone's pull, as though there are a lot of better comics on the stands, there's also a lot worse. Read Full Review
