THE BLACK TIDE lay waste to all that lies before them, cutting a swath of devastation and death across the ocean floor. The only chance to stop them may lie with ATTUMA's people - and if that fails, nothing stands between The Black Tide and Atlantis itself. A tragedy that will impact Atlantean history forever, and transform friendship into enmity. The secrets of THE KING IN BLACK are buried here.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 27, 2021

    King in Black: Namor #3 connects the past and present tragically and heartbreakingly. Busiek utilizes the event to add important and revealing backstories to these characters. It was a clever idea to leave Swift Tides transformation until the third issue as it allowed the reader to see just how much the three young Atlanteans hero-worshipped these warriors. This makes the shock of what happens to them and what they do even sadder. Read Full Review
