    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Nov 15, 2019

    The Black Cat series is showing how strong a character Felicia is, in both attitude, competence and lifestyle. Her regular book is a fun read from the get go. I am at a loss as to how Marvel can produce such an enjoyable book and yet fail so miserably with Black Widow. To be honest, that's Marvel's conundrum to solve. For me, Black Cat is one of the books that I look forward to most every month. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 13, 2019

    The story in Black Cats first annual serves as the prequel carefully orchestrated serial that MacKay and Dowling are working on in the monthly series. Marvels work with Felicia Hardy has been smooth and reliably enjoyable for the first half of her first year with her own title. Its been a great launch for Felicia. The Annual feels like a celebration of the success of the series thus far. Complete with a satisfying guest appearance by the character who ushered her into the Marvel Universe back in 1979. After years of supporting appearances, Felicia is finally ready to move comfortably into her own title. The poise and polish of this annual make that perfectly clear.  Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 18, 2019

    When you start with a Maggia wedding ceremony that involves death robots and ritual murder, the tone is elevated enough that we're not necessarily hung up on real-world rules and stakes. But there's an infectious enthusiasm to both the storytelling and the artwork in Black Cat Annual #1 that makes this a supremely well-done annual that will easily steal your heart. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon Mudd Nov 14, 2019

    An old-school good-time comic book that fits Stan Lee's belief that every comic book is someone's first. A great book to use an entry point into the Spider-Man universe and the Marvel Universe in general. Read Full Review

    FINAL THOUGHTSBlack Cat Annual #1 is a treat for fans of Black Cat and Spider-Man alike. It handles the pitfalls many annuals face of multiple artists well, with Joey Vazquezs spectacular art leading the way. Jed MacKay weaves an interesting three-pronged heist tale, even though some of the dialogue and action were a little extended. Theres a neat tie-in to the main Black Cat series at the end also, so if youre enjoying that, definitely give this a shot. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Nov 13, 2019

    Black Cat Annual #1 is a lot of fun. It’s not non-stop, but if you’re like me and secretly favor Feleter over PJ, you’ll definitely enjoy this enough to be happy with the price. The pencils and inks range from good to great, and the colors are mostly solid. If this wedding piqued your interest, you won’t regret checking it out. Read Full Review
