    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 21, 2021

    Black Knight's moody dark bloody mythological depressive and humorous status continues to allow it to stand apart from many other comic books upon the shelves. With the swords, flying horses, mystical beings, and deep ties to Camelot the series fills the epic fantasy niche that isn't explored near enough within Marvel. To top it off it's a rich character study not afraid to dive into the mental toll that heroics and life within the Marvel Universe begin to take on individuals. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald May 19, 2021

    One of the more exciting comics that Marvel is currently publishing, precisely because it doesn’t feel like a Marvel comic. Spurrier reminds readers why he’s one of the most interesting writers in the industry, not afraid to tackle themes like mental illness. Spurrier and Dávila appear to be having a blast, diving deep into a rich Arthurian mythology with their own unique take on it all. Interesting characters, intriguing plot, stunning art, magic and swords, so much to love and recommend in this series. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 31, 2021

    Although defeated, Mordred takes comfort in that the knowledge Whitman may get from the Chalice is just as likely to drive him mad opening the door for the remaining items to fall into the villain's possession. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 20, 2021

    Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #3 has great art, great action, and makes some forward progress on the story, but the uneven pacing and a page-wasting flashback killed the momentum from a much better first and second issue. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum May 19, 2021

    Like the issue before it, Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #3 has a lot to process in terms of mythology. It's something that makes the book very exposition heavy and while it's a good read, given its juxtaposition with what should be a significant battle, the result is an issue that looses its footing just a bit.
