    This issue does not cover any new ground on policing the police. Or Whose lives matters over whom. It did make me aware of my own Implicit Bias, and that is a good thing. I see this as having the potential of being the next Bitter Root, so I as speculator I'm going to pick up a copy and keep an eye on this story. Read Full Review

    Patrick Foreman and Brian Hawkins' Black Cotton flips our entire world on its head in a simple way, delivering a biting alternate history where racial dynamics in America are reversed and the killing of a white woman by a black police officer sparks "White Lives Matter" protests and worries from a decades old family about protecting what's theirs.

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Feb 18, 2021

    This comic makes you think. It isn't designed to be an easy read or fun and enjoyable. Instead, we are taken into a different perspective of recent events that we may not have thought of. This makes it a great read because it reflects modern events. Read Full Review

    Overall, Black Cotton #1 is a satisfying start that looks to say a lot. Hopefully, it gets its footing in the second issue. The story by Patrick Foreman and Brian Hawkins is bold and revolutionary. The art by Marco Perugini is adequate. Altogether, Black Cotton is a story that shows promise but is hard to say right now if it can fulfill it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 17, 2021

    Black Cotton #1 has potential. It could be a hell of an exploration of race relations. But, the first issue delivers a familiar story with the only difference being the color of the skin. It doesn't provide anything new or interesting to chew on. In fact, it feels like it distills our real world ills to economic disparity and that's it. It's simplistic in its approach. Hopefully future issues deliver a bit more to chew on and contemplate as the story progresses. Read Full Review
