    But Why Tho? - Aaron Phillips Mar 24, 2021

    In the end, it was a great issue and Im left mourning the need to see more of Scream in another Marvel series. The combination of the trauma suffered from Benton paired with the power of Scream to inflict justice upon the lawless underbelly of Marvel universe was something Chapman really delivers on. For Symbiote and Venomaniac fans out there, this is a fantastic issue to get your hands on! Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Apr 2, 2021

    If this is the kind of horror-based adventure we can get from Scream, I desperately want to see more. Who do we have to talk to in order to get an ongoing series going? Think of all the supernatural and otherworldly things she can deal with using her unique skill set. This is a standout in the King in Black event as it shows the potential for what else this character can do. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 22, 2021

    King In Black: Scream #1 is a great reminder of how compelling Scream is in the Marvel universe and how much more interesting they are in this modern age. It's also a banger with constant action and the stakes being raised over and over. It's everything you want in an action comic that's also a tie-in. If King In Black: Scream isn't an effective argument she deserves her own series, I don't know what is. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - wolfcypher Mar 25, 2021

    I'm about to risk a hot take here: King in Black: Scream reads more like an Andi Benton/Scream book than it does a King in Black tie-in, and I say it's better for it! A continuation of the previous Scream title, it serves to tie up that run's last story arc while transitioning into the current Knull-Coming crisis that has been wrecking the Marvel Universe. But it's not it's connections to the Knull event that this issue prides itself; it's the combined writing and art of Chapman and Brown that brings out this book's titular character in high form. Scream, Andi or otherwise, has come exceeding far from her origins as that obscure nameless “female Venom character”, and has become a character that deserves another series of books!

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 24, 2021

    This issue reads like a conclusion to the previously cancelled Scream series using the excuse of the King in Black event to tell a final chapter to Chapmans series. It’s a logical tie-in to the event but the real lure will be for fans of Scream. It’s nice to learn a little more about what happened to Demagoblin following her resurrection in Absolute Carnage, and it feels like a resolution for the character of Scream. The art really captures the horror vibe that Chapman is going for and the result is a creepy one shot. Read Full Review

    While there are some interesting ideas, the art and story simply don't manage to make this issue a worthy read when compared to some of its companions in the saga. Read Full Review
