Last issue
Black Bolt (2017-) #12 - Saladin Ahmed,Christian Ward

It ends with a bang. 

 

And Black Bolt cooking eggs. 

 

Then again, me before this issue: Naw, thanks, I don't want to read about Black Bolt cooking eggs. 

 

Me after this issue: I will read a series about Black Bolt cooking eggs.   And other things.   And being a househusband.   Or, failing to learn to be one, whatever.

So sad this is the penultimate issue
Black Bolt (2017-) #11 - Saladin Ahmed,Christian Ward

Gorgeously written, and lushly illustrated.   Just love this whole run, and it doesn't let up or slow down, at least not in this issue.   Love, love, love.

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.

Black Bolt, Vol. 1: Hard Time
Black Bolt, Vol. 1: Hard Time - Saladin ... Black Bolt, Vol. 1: Hard Time - Saladin Ahmed Full review at my site.

Gorgeously drawn, with a interesting story that weaves in thoughts on who we jail and loneliness and life with a kickass prison break.

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.
