    Comic Vine - Jen 'Miss J' Aprahamian Apr 30, 2014

    BLACK SCIENCE closes its first arc in a spectacular manner, and as all great arc-enders do, leaves us wanting to know what's next. Remender & Co. are nailing this book, melding sci-fi, surrealism, and good old-fashioned human conflict, and taking readers on a strange interdimensional trip that they can't predict (but can certainly enjoy). There's non-stop action coupled with poignant reflection, and it's a slam dunk. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Russell Johnson Apr 29, 2014

    I can't help gushing about the magnificent strides and progressions Remender brings to this story. It's action-packed, heartfelt, emotional and unleashed sci-fi mayhem. The relationships that are built and destroyed by the teams travels through dimension and time will keep you guessing what's around each corner, which is the best part of this ride Remender has created. Black Science is an incredibly well thought out adventure with rich characters fans of sci-fi, drama, and action can all get on board. Issue #6 is the pinnacle of change for the story and for all the characters involved and a perfect ending to the story's first full arc. Black Science is magically story-telling from both Remender and Scalera which every comic book fan should take a chance on because you will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Shane Hoffman Apr 29, 2014

    Matteo Scaleras artwork alone would sell this comic to me; one look at his artwork and you can help but be mesmerized. His style is distinctive and unique to him and is full of life as it jumps off the page. His artwork tells the story at a near cinematic pace. Its as if he captures each and every action beat and pivotal moment needed to tell the story in each panel. Also, with the vivid colours he uses the images just pop and jump right off the page and into your imagination. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Apr 30, 2014

    Black Science #6 is an example of how dynamic and energetic creator-owned comics can be. Remender, Scalera and White are doing amazing things in this series and issue #6 seals the arc with an amazing final set of pages. This creative team is building something very special, and I highly urge any readers who haven't jumped on board to use the hiatus until July to do so. This is one of the most creative comics in the industry, from a story and visual perspective, and I cannot recommend it more. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson May 2, 2014

    The “Black Science” team has pulled out all the stops in issue #6. The team has shown several times just how far they are willing to go with this story, and yet you can't help but be surprised when you turn that final page. Any comic reader worth their salt will take any sort of massive status quo change with a grain of salt, but this team sells the emotion and gravity of the situation like true masters of the trade. Even though it ends on a cliffhanger, the team expands on several of the book's ongoing threads, giving these first six issues a sense of completeness in their own right. At the same time, they open the door to so much possibility, peeling back the layers of the onion, as it were. Like all great “season finales,' “Black Science” #6 leaves you on the edge of your seat, begging for more as the scene fades to white. Well played team, see you again in July. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain May 2, 2014

    If you've been waiting on a trade for this comic, then you definitely need to stop wasting time and get on with the floppies program. This is not the kind of series that you want to wait on for that long. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - William Mercado May 2, 2014

    Look, you've read my other reviews (if you haven't, get on it) and this one is no exception: if you are not reading Black Science, you are obviously missing out! And that should really say something coming from a guy whose rave reviews are distinctly hard to come by. (Again, check the records.) Rick Remender & Matteo Scalera are in top form on this title and it is one of the best comics on the shelf! I mean, come on people" it's science! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Geo N May 2, 2014

    What Remender and Scalera do extremely well is create these worlds, or dimensions I should say, that are original, imaginative and inventive. They do this every few issues which is as unbelievable as the worlds they create. Unfortunately, we will have to wait until July 30th to experience the next world our favorite dimension-jumping scientists travel to and what awaits them there. Although Black Science #6 answered many lingering questions we had from previous issues, it also created more. It was a perfect close to the arc and great set-up for what's to come. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell May 4, 2014

    A very strong issue to wrap up the first arc of the series. The characters have all moved away from their initial stereotypes and some interesting storytelling possibilities lie ahead. The art is tremendous. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Lune May 2, 2014

    Where we go from here, both figuratively and literally, is anyone's guess. There's a little time to wait while Image release the trade of the first arc (perfect time to catch up you guys), but Remender, Scalera and the Anarchic League of Scientists will be back in July, and so for that matter will I.

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Apr 30, 2014

    This concludes one of the most action heavy first arcs of a comic Ive read in recent memory. Black Science is so much more than a love letter to science fiction and reads like a love letter to just plain good storytelling. Remender proves he isnt afraid of taking risks in a world where hes already known for it, and because of this his work continues to surprise, gutpunch, and entertain. Youd be a fool not to believe in his eververse, and even more foolish not to rush out and buy this issue now. It packs a punch, and serves as a shining example of what good looks like in comics.

    Capeless Crusader - Asaph Bitner Apr 29, 2014

    Backwards Compatible - Paul Fiander Oct 21, 2014

    I can recommend Black Science whole heartedly the art and story are both stellar. The end of this first arc will knock most readers for six and that feels fitting for the series so far. Now the question is will the next jump take our Dimensionauts home or will we get to see another new world? Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - David Staniusz May 5, 2014

    While this issue is not the best issue of the series, it is still really good, and a fitting end to arc. Issue 6 gives the reader enough payback, while allowing the anticipation for the future to exist. Ifyou have not read Black Science yet, take this break as a opportunity to catch up and join in on the fun for issue 7 in July! Read Full Review
