    Bounding Into Comics - Jared Leatzow Sep 20, 2016

    Remender continues to write a great comic in Black Science #25. Thematically, each issue seems to deal with the topic of failure and loss. Even when main character, Grant McKay, has a minor win, it is later punctuated with a disastrous failure, unintended consequences, or an unforeseen event. However, as good a storyteller as Remender is, Scalera should get most the credit for this issue. Scalera does a pitch perfect job setting the mood and tone of the issue with his artwork. His use of body language tells as much or more about the the ramifications of the events that are transpiring, than those of Remender's words. Read Full Review

    None of this changes my sense that this book needs to stop using "X gets the shaft" as a trope, because it will wear thin. That being said, I'm more disposed to accept that when it's done well, and that's what happens here. The status quo has been changed sufficiently that I'll buy back in. Read Full Review

    There's not an undamaged character in the bunch, and while issue #25 does succeed in laying out further the machinations in play, the bulk of the issue is dedicated to their continued torment. Such a barrage could backfire if handled improperly, but Remender has done such a strong job at building such flawed characters that the constant emotional yo-yo always seemingly fits the subject matter at hand.
