    But Why Tho? - CJ Jan 1, 1970

    Black Cat #1 successfully highlights its titular character and her skills while also tying into the events of King in Black. Whether you are readingKing in Black or not, I highly suggest you check out this book-especially if you're a Spider-Man fan or like heist films such asOcean's Eleven. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Dec 14, 2020

    As anyone who knows me, knows how much I loved the first volume of Black Cat. I love her fringe, outsider status. For the reason, I was worried about the tie-in; Felicia doesn't seem to be the kind of character to hang-out with some big leaguers. I should have had more faith in Messrs MacKay and Villa who have handled Felicia's temporary integration to mainstream status well. Thanks to Black Cat, my pull list has become a lot more fun!

    Kabooooom - Harvey Moreno Dec 18, 2020

    Let me leave you with one final thought: I don't care how good you think the terms are between you and your ex, if she's stealing your car, you have a problem on your hands. Also, fun fact: Peter Parker does not have a driver's license! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 16, 2020

    The issue ends with a text-based address from Black Cats associate Dr. Korpse. Its a nice wrap-up to the issue that gives it a solid foundation. One of the great challenges with a monthly comic in the modern era lies in maintaining its presence in the mind of the reader between issues. Dr. Korpses letter to the reader at the end of the issue allows the title to steal a nice, little corner of the readers consciousness until late January when Felicia returns again. Its a nice touch.

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 14, 2020

    The King in Black event is still quite early in its release, but Black Cat #1 is the strongest tie-in yet. Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa make a case for Black Cat to be your favorite hero in the event and beyond. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Dec 16, 2020

    Black Cat #1 brings Felicia Hardy back with a mighty symbiotic dragon-roar, tying strongly to the King in Black event yet retaining a remarkable degree of independence. It's still the same lovably amoral heist crew from the last volume; now they're just setting their sights a little higher -- on cosmic death-god. How hard could it be? Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Dec 16, 2020

    This is a great cover to cover page-turner that will enhance youre whole King in Black experience, but you dont have to actually read King in Black to enjoy this issue. Its enjoyable enough on its own. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 16, 2020

    Black Cat #1 is another solid start for the series. It doesn't hold back even when dealing with an event. It takes that aspect and uses it as a launching board in some ways keeping the focus on the character and what she does best. Here's hoping this volume sticks around for a while because this debut is a hell of a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Dec 18, 2020

    My expectations for Black Cat #1 were middle of the road. Having said that, this was a really good book. Jed MacKay has proven that he can write Felicia Hardy in an extremely likable and relatable way. The pencils and colors were lights out too. Black Cat #1 is a great book and an excellent tie-in to King in Black. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 20, 2020

    Jed MacKay and C.F. Villa do a great job using the events of King In Black to give the new Black Cat series a hot start. From the opening page to the final page we are shown why Black Cat is not only a great character but can play a key role in the King In Black event. The job Black Cat's team is given by the Avengers creates greater anticipation for what other stories this new series will be telling after King In Black is over. Read Full Review
