Love, love, love!
Lockjaw (2018-) #1 - Carlos Villas,Daniel Kibblesmith,Ed McGuinness

This is... amazing.   Like you'd think, oh, Lockjaw, lol, he's getting his whole series?   But you'd be wrong.   Lockjaw is amazing.   

 

 

And it's not just that he's adorable.  

 

 

He teleports.   He TELEPORTS, YES!

 

And while this is all amazing, there's more.   Lockjaw is looking for his siblings, and he ends up taking D-Man along in the most hilarious way possible. 

 

 

D-Man happens to have just split from his boyfriend, no one remembers him, and he's feeling down in general.  

 

Y'know, until he touches Lockjaw when he's teleporting, gets taken along for the ride - and meets Ka-Zar, a half naked, ripped dude who pals around with his sabertooth tiger.   And D-Man's reaction is pretty much, 'thank you, best day ever!'   We spend a lot of time with D-Man, building up how sucky his life is, only to leave him here. 

 

This is a limited series, but amazing. 

 

Also, I was sure the fact that the writer's last name is 'Kibblesmith' was a joke, but apparently not.   That makes this better.

One of my favorite of the events
Avengers (2016-) #676 - Mark Waid,Al Ewing,Jim Zub,Pepe Larraz,Mark Brooks

It's a little confined to the three Avengers teams, and I'm interested in two of them.   Not sure I'm a huge fan of the way they're retconning the Avengers history, but I like Voyager, their new character, so I'm willing to put up with it - for now.

You get a lazy review
Black Bolt (2017-) #9 - Saladin Ahmed,Christian Ward

This was fucking brilliant.   The storytelling, the art, just top notch.   But it also had Captain America, and since Marvel hasn't apologized for gaslighting us about Hydra not being Nazi stand-ins, nor have the retconned the shitshow that was Secret Empire completely, I'm sticking by one-half starring everything with comic book version Cap in it.   MCU is excluded.   Ultimate Universe, and Spider-Gwen universe are excluded but 616 Cap?   Yeah, that dude gets an automatic one-half star. 

 

Black Bolt and Blinky tell Titania her husband is dead, and there is fall-out and a funeral.   There's also an old enemy who comes back, and when they're plan of kidnapping and killing Black Bolt fails, they take someone else instead. 

 

You're getting lazy reviews.  I was talked into giving blood by a nurse, so I'm feeling a little out of it.

Beautiful
Black Bolt (2017-) #8 - Leonard Bacon;Joseph Parrish Thompson;Richard Salter Storrs;Henry Ward Beecher;Joshua Leavitt;Henry Chandler Bowen;Theodore Tilton;William Hayes Ward;Hamilton Holt;Harold de Wolf Fuller;Fabian Franklin;Christian Archibald Herter,Saladin Ahmed

So glad Ward's on art duty again; I found last issue's guest artist to be not quite as good.  I like Ward's sensibilities and art much better. 

 

Black Bolt returns to an Earth where his people think he's Maximus, still using his telepathic powers.   And they've had enough: they're ready to take out Maximus.   

 

Eventually, it all gets resolved, and this whole issue is worth that one, crushing scene between Black Bolt and Ahura.   

 

Also, Blinky and Black Bolt go to Crusher Creel's wife to tell her that he's dead, but she thinks they're there to take her in, just like they took Crusher in before.   And now I have to wait another month.   This series is worth the wait, though.

Love, love, love
Inhumans: Once And Future Kings (2017) #5 (of 5) - Gustavo Duarte,Nick Bradshaw,Ryan North,Phil Noto,Christopher Priest

I wish this was longer: it wraps up nicely, but it could very easily be continued, as well.   Medusa, Black Bolt, and Maximus discover who their real enemies are.   And they're in for an epic fight that will determine the future of the Inhumans and the Alpha Primitives. 

 

It's also gorgeous.    Just beautifully illustrated.   

 

I will miss this so much, I can't even write a longer review: I'll just think about how long Royals went on and how this should have gone longer, and I'll get sad that this probably won't get a longer, or newer, run with the same author and illustrator.   They're the ones that make this, to be honest.
