    Bottom Line: What this issue lacked in action, it more than made up for in tension and emotion. Remender did a great job of bringing the audience up to speed on the state of things without making the book feel like meaningless filler. This book is an excellent use of your three bucks anytime it's on the new release shelf. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Mar 26, 2019

    It's been an emotional year so far for comics; all of my favorite titles are coming to an end. But although it's sad to see them go, I'm happy that they're going out with a bang, rather than fading with a whimper. I will always be grateful to Rick Remender for reigniting my love for comics. Beyond that, I feel so lucky to have been along for this incredible journey through the Eververse from start to finish; to the center of the onion and back again. Black Science #39 reinforces everything I love about the series and gives loyal readers a glimpse of things to come. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Benjamin Novoa Mar 26, 2019

    Rick Remender uses Black Science to present some rich philosophical queries that have been wrestled with for centuries, particularly the notion that life is an illusion. However, rather than beat readers over the head, he uses such a timeless hypothesis to tell a grounded story steeped in morality, humanity, and the love of a family. With the majority of Black Science's story in the rearview mirror, Black Science sets the stage for the climactic finish that waits down a winding road. If nothing else, Issue 39 should incentivize readers to catch up on one of Remender's best works to date. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Leigh Kade Mar 27, 2019

    One word of caution, though: If you're not already on board with this series, it's not going to be easy to just jump in. I highly recommend going back to the beginning and diving into the graphic novels before tackling the later stories! You'll thank me later. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Mar 28, 2019

    Black Science #39 spends too much of its time talking and not enough time getting ready for the finale. For all that, the art is as good as it has ever been, even if the writing is too wordy and the pace on life support. Stay tuned, though, because with this issue out of the way, the ending promises to be a winner. Read Full Review

    It's a touching issue, a calm before the storm of what's sure to be a hectic and deadly final arc. Read Full Review
