    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 24, 2021

    Theres little question that Felicia is going to do what shes going to do. Its interesting to see the tipping point which points her in the inevitable direction that she ultimately takes. It reveals a tremendous amount about her as a person. More so than anything else in MacKays impressive run with the Black Cat, this is a very intimate interlude with the title character. In a way, the entire series to this point has been leading to this one issue. In its own way, this is an impressive climax. Itll be interesting to see where MacKay takes Felicia next.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 24, 2021

    Black Cat #3 pulls off a formidable trick: It maintains the over-the-top cosmic struggle established in previous issues while turning most of its attention to a far more internal conflict. Felicia faces (and, of course, masters) ultimate temptation on her way through the King in Black event. It looks terrific, it sounds brilliant, and it maintains a breakneck action-movie pace -- all while taking an impressively deep look at what makes the Black Cat tick. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alexandra Iciek Feb 24, 2021

    Black Cat has been an absolute hidden gem of a series, and issue #3 proves why it needs more attention. This week's installment will likely go down as a must-read in Felicia Hardy's history, as it carefully and insightfully examines what makes the character so great. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Feb 24, 2021

    BLACK CAT #3 takes a break from the outrageous action to walk us down Hardy's memory lane of pains and regrets. When the power of creation offers her the ability to set every wrong right, we get a much deeper sense of authenticity to Hardy's character and an appreciation for the character she's grown into.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 3, 2021

    The issue offers plenty of temptation for the title character, and a surprise for Strange who is astonished she was able to turn away from such power (and avoid creating an even more dangerous situation for everyone) as the title turns its focus back to the larger “King in Black” event.

    Sometimes event tie-ins work, and sometimes they don't. Believe it or not, giving Felicia Hardy the most powerful magics in the universe works"and it works damn good, at that. Read Full Review
