Fabulous ending!
Uncanny Inhumans (2015-) #20 - Charles Soule,Ario Anindito,Frazer Irving,Scott Wilson,Lee Garbett

I can see how and why this might tie into Royals and Black Bolt, even.   This has been a fabulous series, and this wrap up was as funny as I could have hoped, while tying up all the lose ends, some more seriously than others. 

 

And somehow, this feels appropriate to end with Maximus the Mad.   From the Inhumans to All-New Inhumans to Uncanny Inhumans: it started with and ends with Maximus. 

 

Gorgeous, gorgeous run.   This will mean nothing if you haven't read at least this series, and it will mean more if you read Inhumans and then All-New Inhumans and then Uncanny Inhumans in my opinion.   They all add up to one much longer story arc - and I hope the people who pick up the reigns with royals, Black Bolt and Secret Warriors keep telling a much larger story that is just as well drawn as this one was.

The Purple Children...
Daredevil (2015-) #18 - Charles Soule,Ron Garney

Matt continues to confess to the priest about how he hid his identity from the world.   When two of the Purple Children knock at his door, panicked because they're being chased, Matt helps them.   Of course he does, he explains, because they're children. 

 

They were also in danger: their father is an unrivaled narcissist.   Since he can get whatever he wants because he can control people's mind, he doesn't have to think about other people, not even his own children.   What matters is what he wants, and as far as he's concerned, that's all that matters. 

 

So Daredevil goes to work, trying to protect the two children, and find their three siblings.   Except that he knows he'll find the Purple Man, he thinks he's ready, and oh, shit, he's not.    This is exciting, it's a good explanation for what happened so far, and I'm excitied to see what's going to come from this.

Perfect ending!
IvX (2016-) #6 (of 6) (IvX (2016-2017)) - Charles Soule,Jeff Lemire,Leinil Yu

This was about a perfect crossover/event.  I didn't read everything related to this, like the X-Men titles, but I did read Uncanny Inhumans since I was, and still am, subscribed to that.   (Although it's being cancelled for Royals and Black Bolt!)

 

It had all the epic battles and drama that I'd expect from a comic crossover, and some of the revelations were not only astounding, but revealed just how damaged Emma Frost really is.  And it's far more damaged than you'd think.   She basically made an enemy of everyone she's ever me with this, and I understand: she kept doing appalling things, but now I find out that they're even more horrifying than I could have guessed. 

 

It's also nice to see that people can realize that they've been played, that the people they've been fighting aren't their real enemies, and make some kind of peace with those facts.   Overall, just stepped up the game and delivered an ending that this event deserves, while starting to set up at least Royals.   (The new series like Secret Warriors, Black Bolt, The Astonishing X-Men, X-Men: Gold, and X-Men: Blue haven't been touched, or at least I don't think they have.)

 

This leaves me more excited for the future of these two franchises, but especially all the Inhuman series.   I may or may not subscribe to Secret Warriors - although I am signed up for Black Bolt and Royals right now.   That being said, Secret Warriors has both Kamala Khan as Ms. Marvel and Lunella Lafayette as Moon Girl - and where Moon Girl goes, Devil Dinosaur is sure to follow.    The call of Secret Warriors is a strong one!

Not as much of a fan of this as IvX
Death Of X (2016) #1 (of 4) - Jeff Lemire,Charles Soule,Aaron Kuder

But I did get it for free.   That being said, it wasn't horrible, but I expect better from Soule and Lemire, two of my favorite writers working at Marvel currently.   I found this overwrought, without as much humor or tension as they normally bring to the plate, and while I suspect this will get better, I can't bring myself to pay for further issues. 

 

Still, I read it early in the morning, and it kept me busy waiting for my manager to come into work, so that was nice.   

 

Fandom Wednesday was a little slow today since I had a lot to do: returning things to the library, getting food, and work.  I also agreed to another eight and half hour shift tomorrow, so I probably will try to spend tomorrow after work catching up.

I've been wondering about this
Daredevil (2015-) #17 - Charles Soule,Ron Garney

And it's not completely explained - but I'm getting a good idea of why Matt fucked with everyone's minds, and how he did it.   What I don't know is why the others involved would agree - which I expect next issue will touch upon. 

 

I've had arguments with people about how being a lawyer is just as important to Matt as being Daredevil and he says as much in this issue.   There's not as much fighting and this is more of a 'set up this huge storyline.'   

 

Regardless, it was gorgeously done and I love, love, love this revelation.   I'm all too eager to see where this is going.
