    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 30, 2021

    Black Cat is fun in South Korea, but shes not the only one in the issue. The continuation of the cross-annual Infinite Destinies event continues to lumber its way through the summer in the third installment of a story that doesnt really have anything to do with Black Cat. The Infinity Gems havent really been interesting since Thanos Quest back in the early 1990s, so its nice that the crossover only hits like an afterthought in an otherwise enjoyable annual.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 1, 2021

    Black Cat Annual throws Felicia Hardy into a world different than her usual stomping ground but doesn't lose a bit of the series trademark humor, fun, and emotional weight. Truly fun and colorful and engaging artwork that continues the book's great trend to play with panel & page layouts fill every single page. It's a great intro sort of issue to Felicia and the book's style for new readers ahead of the upcoming Infinity Stones centric story arc. Read Full Review

    Whilst, this may not seem like much of a tie-in to the overall Infinite Destinies story, I cannot pass up the chance for another Black Cat issue. Cynics may say that the book is vacuous, empty and style over substance. I say this book is full of fun dialogue, is pacy, has attractive characters and most importantly, is great fun!

    Bleeding Cool - Hannibal Tabu Jul 5, 2021

    As with almost all of MacKay's scripts, this was certainly enjoyable and had it taken more time with its new friends and less time montage-ing, it could have been a bit better. The sheer entertainment value of Cat and Fox going back and forth, however, is worth having. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 28, 2021

    Black Cat Annual #1 is a unique look at Black Cat out of her element in South Korea, but soon you find she's never out of her element thanks to smarts and careful planning. MacKay offers up an intriguing setup, a fun look at a foreign superhero team, and new details on where the Mind Stone has ended up. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Jul 2, 2021

    Black Cat Annual #1 had a lot of great ideas but simply did not have the space to flesh out those complicated plot points. Read Full Review

    You could certainly do worse than buying or reading Black Cat Annual #1. It just didnt feel like that much of a throwaway story and Im also glad to see a character like Black Cat getting the much-needed push. I think those that read this issue have probably never heard of the added characters in this issue but thats okay, you have to start somewhere. This issue was definitely worth a read.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 12, 2021

    While making mention of the hero's recent adventures, Black Cat Annual #1 doesn't require the reader to know too much about her ongoing story. Instead, it's just a fun one-off adventure with an unrelated Nick Fury ongoing back-up story thrown in to try and help justify the higher cover price. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jun 30, 2021

    Taking it all together, Black Cat Annual #1s ability to satisfy readers feels like it will be largely dependent on what the reader is looking for. If they come seeking a fun adventure featuring the charming cat burglar whose name is on the cover, I think there is little chance of disappointment. On the other hand, if they bought the book hoping for a meaningful continuation of the storyline that the same cover advertises, they will likely be disappointed. Read Full Review
