    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 29, 2021

    Black Cat remains one of the best books being published currently as it continues to fill its pages with fantastic humor, fun heist moments, and great heartfelt character moments and depth. All of that is perfectly captured by the gorgeous and dynamic art that brings this character and her world to life. Felicia Hardy's star continues to rise within the Marvel Universe, just like she deserves. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Jul 28, 2021

    This book just continues to get better with every issue, and the same is true for this one. MacKay and Villa, with the help of Brian Reber and Ferran Delgado, infuse so much charisma and character into each panel, you cant help but appreciate the craftsmanship here. Theyve built a whole world up for a Spider-Man supporting cast member, in a way that Felicia can be completely independent of Spider-Man, in order to tell a well written, beautifully drawn story that isnt a detriment to the characters or the comic.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 28, 2021

    Above and beyond all else, MacKay is doing an outstanding job of maintaining a solid character arc for Felicia. Shes gone through a great deal of development in the course of MacKays time with her. Given all that shes been through and where shes likely to go with her latest job, its going to be interesting to see where MacKay takes her from here. Shes already cycled through so many weird corners of the Marvel Universe, and now shes shooting right out into a heist with cosmic-level implications. MacKays going to have to tread deftly through his latest series with Black Cat.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 26, 2021

    Black Cat #8 is a cinematic take on the heist story with superheroes. Read this to get into Black Cat's headspace, but also to not see, but feel how high the stakes are in this story. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jul 26, 2021

    When all is said and done, Black Cat #8delivers a solid narrative that just suffers from a couple of confusing character choices. With that said, the scenario the book sets up with its ending leaves Felicia and company in an interesting position. Any fan will want to see where this one is going. Read Full Review
