Excellent start to this series
Death Of The Inhumans (2018) #1 (of 5) - Donny Cates,Kaare Andrews,Ariel Olivetti

The variant cover I have is very misleading, as it has a grave of a certain character on it and I suspected they wouldn't die - yet.   There is death in this issue, as promised, and I"m a bit devastated over it, but I'm willing to see where this goes. 

 

I am unhappy that they're killing off the Inhumans, but I'm hoping they'll get a good death of story arc.   I also know that as soon as it becomes convenient, Marvel will bring all these characters back.   

 

The Kree come back to Earth with a message for Black Bolt: join or die.   And they will burn everything he loves, and everything he feels responsible for, until he begs to join them.   

 

And to do this, they create something new, something less human than the Inhumans, to deliver their message. 

 

I'm more than happy to continue with this series.

Eeeeh
Inhumans: Judgment Day (2018) #1 - Mike Del Mundo,Al Ewing,Daniel Acuña

I saw a lot of this in Black Bolt, and the whole 'see it from someone else's point of view' only plays if you show something new.   This felt word-for-word the same; since the dialogue has to be...

 

It didn't add enough from Medusa or Black Bolt's point of view for me to appreciate this retelling. 

 

The emotional content felt flat, but this is after reading the Jenkins/Lee run, Soule's amazing run on a bunch of Inhuman series, and Black Bolt.   Ewing's one-shot just doesn't hold up or do them justice.   I'll be honest: Ewing gets a lot of play and love from the fans, and I'm usually left wondering why this is the case.   

 

Glad I read it to get the full story, because I'm a completist like that, but this isn't even a favorite Inhumans title.

Awwww!
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #30 - Natacha Bustos,Brandon Montclare

Devil is so adorable: he keeps letting Moon Girl know he's forgiven her, and she still asks for his forgiveness. 

 

Anyway, I liked this storyline, but my favorite is Moon Girl and Devil on their own so I'm glad to see the team's back together and that they told The Thing and The Human Torch to find Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman, because it lets them be alone. 

 

I also think this issue starts to kick off the return of the Fantastic Four as a complete team.

Cutest mini-series!
Lockjaw (2018-) #4 - Daniel Kibblesmith,Ulises Farinas,Carlos Alberto Patino Villa

Awwww!   Lockjaw was just unbearably cute in all of this.   All of it.  

 

I love how he finds his family - and what happens to his poor, tortured sibling.   Just the perfect ending.  I was wondering how D-Man would fare after this, and how they would deal with separating Lockjaw and D-Man.   Giving the dog to D-Man makes sense.  

 

Also, I was unhappy with the revelation that Lockwas a dog, not a member of the royal family - which would have tied up a plot hole I had with Karnak and his parents.   However, there was a moment here that made this just as heartbreaking with just as much of a story to tell as my obviously wrong theory. 

 

I'm still a little bitter they didn't go to the other way because I still think it had more narrative potential, but something like this goes a long way to making me happy with the way it turned out in the end. 

 

I would read a doggy series written by Kibblesmith.  Let me be particular: I would buy this ongoing with this team for as long as it ran.

Guess who's back?
Daredevil (2015-) #597 - Charles Soule,Stefano Landini,Pat Mora

Nur.   And he brings along news of a villain who's escaped, slaughtering his way out of a deep, dark hole in an Attilan prison to wreak havoc on New York City once again.   And it's Daredevil and his allies who will have to deal with this along with the Inhumans.   While they might not be working directly together, they are keeping DD out of jail given that the police have a huge reward out for his capture.   They are depending on him to call them if he finds Muse again.  

 

Given what an evil fucker Muse is, DD agrees.   

 

And of course, he warns Sam, once his protege.   Blindspot had his eyes ripped away by Muse and Matt says that Muse broke Sam's mind as well.   (I do think I prefer Matt on his own so in retrospect, I think moving Blindspot out of the way was a good move.   They did kinda fringe him: if someone wants to get sympathy from Matt, they blind a character, especially a younger one.   Allies, children he's fighting a legal battle, whatever.)   

 

Still, this promises to be a brutal storyline - and Matt's brutal storylines can be excellent.   This is Soule writing so I trust him to do this properly.   Or yay!

 

And yeah, I'm taking a day or two and knocking out some of my comixology comics.   They say I'm in the middle of over a thousand and that number just has to go down :/  I'm also at least a month behind on all my comics.
