"Amid the usual fisticuffs of superhero comics, BLACK makes room for commentary."
– George Gene Gustines, The New York Times
"As well-liked as superhero movies are, they rarely stand for something, and BLACK definitely does that."
"The premise alone is insane."
"Beautifully drawn and refreshingly confrontational."
– A.V. Club
"BLACK is admirable not only for its contribution to the visibility of the contemporary Black experience within the realm of graphic storytelling, but also for providing a fictional form of catharsis from a very real and present fear that pervades the Black experience in our present day."
