    On Comics Ground - Erin Schramm Aug 5, 2017

    As Black Bolt listens to someone who, by all accounts, is a criminal and realizes some of his own misdeeds far outweigh the ones committed by Crusher Creel, it really makes the reader question who is the hero of this story. Read Full Review

    Black Bolt #4 is one of those comics you can say is an example of the power of the comic book medium. This series is brilliant, these creators are on fire and I cannot wait to see what is coming next for the Silent King and even Crusher Creel. Read Full Review

    A beautifully crafted issue soaked in questions, with no answers yet. At least, no easy ones. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 4, 2017

    Definitely give this one a read. Its premise makes it an interesting addition to Marvel canon due to its relevance in one of its most oft-used villains. It gets a high recommendation from me. Read Full Review
