Empires, rebellions, super heroes and spies - all in a day's work for the enigmatic Black Swan. With a dark and twisted Nova on the rampage and her Black Order teammates getting decidedly pummeled, the Swan is presented with a simple choice: stay and risk an ungainly end or leave and abandon the closest thing she has to a family.
Rated T+

    This issue of Black Order swings a little too far from "over-the-top violence and goth/emo feelings" and more towards the melancholy, although I'm interested to see how this first arc wraps up next month. Read Full Review

    Some of the charm is lost here as the character being focused on, Black Swan, is perhaps the least interesting member of the Black Order, despite being the most developed of the bunch.

    This wasn’t quite as fun as previous issues and I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I still enjoyed it!

    This issue upsets me because of how badly Black Swan is written and how misleading the cover is, even though the plot got slightly better this issue. Black Swan and Nova barely fight in this issue, despite the cover. Black Swan was one of the best characters in Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers/New Avengers/Secret Wars run, and yet she is so shallow in this series. She has no ulterior motive for joining the Black Order, except she just wants to fit in. That’s it. One of the most interesting and deceptive characters in recent memory written like this just has me frustrated. The plot does improve though and I’m actually a little excited for the Ebony Maw centered finale in issue 5
