    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Apr 7, 2021

    Another worthy addition to King in Blacks tie in anthology series, the issue is only let down by the second story which just rehashes other idea’s which have been done to death. There is good art throughout the comic by both creatives teams though, and it’s an interesting look into other events occurring during the main King in Black event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Apr 8, 2021

    We have a by-the-numbers Cloak & Dagger tale, and fun pilot to a Toxin ongoing which may not happen, but that potential is there. Steve Orlando does a good job selling the premise of a Toxin book featuring a new host. Between these three Planet of the Symbiote/King in Black anthologies, this one has the absolute least to do with King in Black. If any of the featured characters interest you, you'll be fine reading these. For the uninitiated, you might get something at least from the Toxin story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 5, 2021

    Overall, this is an okay last issue in a miniseries that has allowed creators to play around within the confines of the King in Black event. This is by no means a necessary read, but the Toxin story makes the issue worth reading thanks to a clever idea using Symbiotes and a strong voice in its characters. The Cloak and Dagger story is more for their superfans who miss seeing them in the latest comics. Funnily enough, "Planet of the Symbiotes" was quite misleading, but if you're up for some smaller-sized side issues it's a worthy read. Read Full Review

    Both stories read like teasers, the sort of fare Marvel squeezes together into a $4.99 extravaganza advertising new series. They aren't fulfilling reads, but they might provide a hook to read another #1 issue. Unfortunately, there's no clear follow on from the pair of stories presented here and they both read like advertisements. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Lucas Fashina Apr 6, 2021

    Most of the dialogue was carried in Cloak and Dagger, and intentionally felt disjointed. It makes you feel like you are awkwardly watching a breakup happen in a fancy Italian Restaurant. Read Full Review
