    Black Bolt and Blinky return to earth and go to tell Titania that her husband, the Absorbing Man, is dead. The funeral is interrupted and Blinky is snatched away. Can Black Bolt and Titania save her? I liked Black Bolt, Vol. 1: Hard Time so this one was a no-brainer for me. Still, I...

    Black Bolt travels back to Earth. He seeks to set things right as much as he can. Home Free and the entire Black Bolt series was pretty forgettable. Nothing of any real importance happens and it's all one big set up for Black Bolt to take a hard look at himself and to try to make...

    Truly excellent, with some wonderful character moments. Fantastic artwork, too, even from the fill-in artists. Interestingly, it was the moments where Black Bolt interacted with Medusa that were the story's weak spots. They felt slightly shoehorned in. I could read about Black Bo...

    Black Bolt and Blinky return to Earth. When the book focuses on the core characters and their new found friendship, the book is great. Unfortunately, Lash enters into the book and delivers a lot of nonsense. Ahmed doesn't really have a handle on these guest characters, Lash, Captain Am...

    When I initially witnessed the first issue's cover of this solo Black Bolt series, I did wonder how can one create a comic solely about a character who can destroy everything with the slightest whisper. However, writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christian Ward found a way as the silent k...

    A HUGE improvement over the last volume. Even the art is starting grow on me. The funeral part was touching but lost a lot of its impact because you know nobody stays dead in comic book world for long, especially when "no body was recovered". But, hey, that's the nature of comic book...

    The artwork here was really great. Still continues on from the previous volume and gives a mini conclusion. Its a little different to anything else Marvel is writing but I think thats why it stands out. ...

    Quite the same qualities and defaults than book one: - Decent plot with a cool twist in the middle, good interactions between characters, one very well done issue (Creel's funeral) and some frightful revelations on Black Bolt's past but... too many explaining captions all over the ...

    The Midnight King has escaped from the Jailer, and now rockets back towards home with Blinky in tow. His first job is to break the bad news about the death of Crusher Creel to Creel?s wife, Titania, and hell hath no fury like a supervillain grieving. And then, when the old enemies of...

    The second half of Ahmed's Black Bolt run isn't as strong as the first. Issue 7 is sad and sweet with a great guest artist. But starting with issue 8, the book runs headlong into complicated Inhumans backstory that it had so skillfully skirted in the first volume. The funeral for Creel...

    I wanted so badly to love this as much as Volume 1, but I found a lot of the dialogue to be a bit cringy and I didn't feel the need to fully devour this book in one sitting like I did with Volume 1. I do wish it could have continued on though, I'd like to see where it could have gone. ...

    The second volume of Black Bolt is every bit as delightful as the first. The artwork continues to be entirely wonderful, matched only by the joy of the character work, as Ahmed offers strong character beats for several of the characters involved. Oh, and there's some big fight too, ...

    If only all comics could be this gorgeous. ...

    The best Marvel comic of the past two years. Has certainly elevated Black bolt into one of my favourite characters. I certainly felt for out hero. Titania nearly equaled Crusher Creel in this issue. Blinky is great. Christian Ward's artwork is terrific. A hair's width less than t...

    It is a human story about an inhuman and an alien. It is a story about love and facing fears and finding your home, your voice and your family. Ahmed and Ward and the rest of the team did a wonderful job of giving Black Bolt, usually just a stoic, voiceless, humorless character his ...

    Note: This review is for Vol. 1 & 2 of this series Black Bolt is the King of the Inhumans. Well, actually, he was King, but he abdicated his throne and now finds himself in an ancient Inhuman prison out among the stars. He had meant to place his brother, Maximus the Mad, in the ...

    Saladin Ahmed continues his powerful and impressive run of Black Bolt with the story of the Inhuman king returning home, only to find that it is not quite the happy return he wanted and the trials of his imprisonment are not yet finished. Often from unexpected places and characters,...

    Ahmed has created something truly unique with this two volume Black Bolt sequence. The story is thoroughly focused on and derived from Black Bolt's character and decisions, grounded solidly in continuity (so far as I know, it's often dangerous to make any such statement), and a deeply ...

    This volume was a GOOD as the first :) Beautiful art and a beautiful story :) The art is exquisite, the simple traces of the pencil and once again, the use of vibrants colors, giving the story this scifi and dream sequence feel. And I really just want that last page/last issue cover b...

    Ehhhh, I'm going to only give it two stars. I got bored with this volume, realizing that Black Bolt wasn't really in it that much, focusing more on the supporting characters. The novelty and uniqueness (which is still there) wore off, and the art was at times difficult to follow. While...

    Boy, you left me speechless! Just... Wow. I loved the first volume of Ahmed's Exiles, but his Black Bolt saga is even better. The work he did with the characters is just wonderful (I mean, he made me care about Titania and root for the Absorbing Man!), and Ward/Irving/Hans did an amaz...

    An ill-fitting conclusion for a book that started out with epicness and vulnerability. Not even an issue of Frazer Irving's nightmarish art helps seal the deal, all because the plot just doesn't cut it. Especially since a whole issue (and an emotional arc from earlier) is negated by a ...

    Black Bolt, Hard Time & Home Free - I read them both immediately and enjoyed them immensely. Absolutely gorgeous art, amazingly profound storytelling. A story of the innate good of us all, even w our own fallibility. So many emotions- but at its core: Hug your loved ones, keep them...

    The art by Christian Ward was already amazing, and then they brought in Stephanie Hans as a guest, who's maybe my favourite Marvel artist ever?! Add a poignant story about family and loss, and it all made me a very happy reader. ...

    Solid ending to a fantastic series. I cried at the absorbing man's funeral. Saladin Ahmed and Frazer Irving were able to give Crusher Creel enough humanity and character to evoke actual tears. Amazing. ...

    You know, I've mostly enjoyed this series (Crusher! Titania! The phenomenal art!), but I'm certainly never going anywhere near the inhumans ever again. Even a good writer (which Ahmed is) can't get them past their core lameness. ...

    Let's get serious. This is really a "Good Guy Crusher Creel" book. He makes the whole book. The rest kind of is what it is. The Black Bolt stuff was . . . fine. Also, weird echoes of Venture Bros. episode Tanks for Nothing with Titania taking the place of Warriana. ...

    The best Marvel comic of the past two years. Has certainly elevated Black bolt into one of my favourite characters. I certainly felt for out hero. Titania nearly equaled Crusher Creel in this issue. Blinky is great. Christian Ward's artwork is terrific. A hair's width less than t...

    It is a human story about an inhuman and an alien. It is a story about love and facing fears and finding your home, your voice and your family. Ahmed and Ward and the rest of the team did a wonderful job of giving Black Bolt, usually just a stoic, voiceless, humorless character his ...

    Note: This review is for Vol. 1 & 2 of this series Black Bolt is the King of the Inhumans. Well, actually, he was King, but he abdicated his throne and now finds himself in an ancient Inhuman prison out among the stars. He had meant to place his brother, Maximus the Mad, in the ...

    Estaba muy entusiasmado por leer esta obra tras el éxito rotundo que fue la primera parte. Esperaba más narración poética, más momentos emotivos y más simbolismos disfrazados de ciencia ficción. Lamentablemente a mí parecer, en comparación con la primera entrega, palidece un p...

    Saladin Ahmed continues his powerful and impressive run of Black Bolt with the story of the Inhuman king returning home, only to find that it is not quite the happy return he wanted and the trials of his imprisonment are not yet finished. Often from unexpected places and characters,...

    Ahmed has created something truly unique with this two volume Black Bolt sequence. The story is thoroughly focused on and derived from Black Bolt's character and decisions, grounded solidly in continuity (so far as I know, it's often dangerous to make any such statement), and a deeply ...

    After the unrelenting pleasure that was Hard Time, this second volume of Black Bolt is a real letdown. I mean, it's still generally good and the art is far above average. But in comparison...ehhhhh... Black Bolt and Blinky return to Earth, only to find that Mr. Bolt is no longer qui...

    This volume was a GOOD as the first :) Beautiful art and a beautiful story :) The art is exquisite, the simple traces of the pencil and once again, the use of vibrants colors, giving the story this scifi and dream sequence feel. And I really just want that last page/last issue cover b...

    Ehhhh, I'm going to only give it two stars. I got bored with this volume, realizing that Black Bolt wasn't really in it that much, focusing more on the supporting characters. The novelty and uniqueness (which is still there) wore off, and the art was at times difficult to follow. While...

    Boy, you left me speechless! Just... Wow. I loved the first volume of Ahmed's Exiles, but his Black Bolt saga is even better. The work he did with the characters is just wonderful (I mean, he made me care about Titania and root for the Absorbing Man!), and Ward/Irving/Hans did an amaz...

    An ill-fitting conclusion for a book that started out with epicness and vulnerability. Not even an issue of Frazer Irving's nightmarish art helps seal the deal, all because the plot just doesn't cut it. Especially since a whole issue (and an emotional arc from earlier) is negated by a ...

    Black Bolt, Hard Time & Home Free - I read them both immediately and enjoyed them immensely. Absolutely gorgeous art, amazingly profound storytelling. A story of the innate good of us all, even w our own fallibility. So many emotions- but at its core: Hug your loved ones, keep them...

    The art by Christian Ward was already amazing, and then they brought in Stephanie Hans as a guest, who's maybe my favourite Marvel artist ever?! Add a poignant story about family and loss, and it all made me a very happy reader. ...

    Solid ending to a fantastic series. I cried at the absorbing man's funeral. Saladin Ahmed and Frazer Irving were able to give Crusher Creel enough humanity and character to evoke actual tears. Amazing. ...

    You know, I've mostly enjoyed this series (Crusher! Titania! The phenomenal art!), but I'm certainly never going anywhere near the inhumans ever again. Even a good writer (which Ahmed is) can't get them past their core lameness. ...

    Black Bolt and Blinky return to earth and go to tell Titania that her husband, the Absorbing Man, is dead. The funeral is interrupted and Blinky is snatched away. Can Black Bolt and Titania save her? I liked Black Bolt, Vol. 1: Hard Time so this one was a no-brainer for me. Still, I...

    Black Bolt travels back to Earth. He seeks to set things right as much as he can. Home Free and the entire Black Bolt series was pretty forgettable. Nothing of any real importance happens and it's all one big set up for Black Bolt to take a hard look at himself and to try to make...

    Truly excellent, with some wonderful character moments. Fantastic artwork, too, even from the fill-in artists. Interestingly, it was the moments where Black Bolt interacted with Medusa that were the story's weak spots. They felt slightly shoehorned in. I could read about Black Bo...

    Black Bolt and Blinky return to Earth. When the book focuses on the core characters and their new found friendship, the book is great. Unfortunately, Lash enters into the book and delivers a lot of nonsense. Ahmed doesn't really have a handle on these guest characters, Lash, Captain Am...

    When I initially witnessed the first issue's cover of this solo Black Bolt series, I did wonder how can one create a comic solely about a character who can destroy everything with the slightest whisper. However, writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christian Ward found a way as the silent k...

    A HUGE improvement over the last volume. Even the art is starting grow on me. The funeral part was touching but lost a lot of its impact because you know nobody stays dead in comic book world for long, especially when "no body was recovered". But, hey, that's the nature of comic book...

    The artwork here was really great. Still continues on from the previous volume and gives a mini conclusion. Its a little different to anything else Marvel is writing but I think thats why it stands out. ...

    Quite the same qualities and defaults than book one: - Decent plot with a cool twist in the middle, good interactions between characters, one very well done issue (Creel's funeral) and some frightful revelations on Black Bolt's past but... too many explaining captions all over the ...

    The Midnight King has escaped from the Jailer, and now rockets back towards home with Blinky in tow. His first job is to break the bad news about the death of Crusher Creel to Creel?s wife, Titania, and hell hath no fury like a supervillain grieving. And then, when the old enemies of...

    The second half of Ahmed's Black Bolt run isn't as strong as the first. Issue 7 is sad and sweet with a great guest artist. But starting with issue 8, the book runs headlong into complicated Inhumans backstory that it had so skillfully skirted in the first volume. The funeral for Creel...

    I wanted so badly to love this as much as Volume 1, but I found a lot of the dialogue to be a bit cringy and I didn't feel the need to fully devour this book in one sitting like I did with Volume 1. I do wish it could have continued on though, I'd like to see where it could have gone. ...

    The second volume of Black Bolt is every bit as delightful as the first. The artwork continues to be entirely wonderful, matched only by the joy of the character work, as Ahmed offers strong character beats for several of the characters involved. Oh, and there's some big fight too, ...

    If only all comics could be this gorgeous. ...

    The best Marvel comic of the past two years. Has certainly elevated Black bolt into one of my favourite characters. I certainly felt for out hero. Titania nearly equaled Crusher Creel in this issue. Blinky is great. Christian Ward's artwork is terrific. A hair's width less than t...

    It is a human story about an inhuman and an alien. It is a story about love and facing fears and finding your home, your voice and your family. Ahmed and Ward and the rest of the team did a wonderful job of giving Black Bolt, usually just a stoic, voiceless, humorless character his ...

    Note: This review is for Vol. 1 & 2 of this series Black Bolt is the King of the Inhumans. Well, actually, he was King, but he abdicated his throne and now finds himself in an ancient Inhuman prison out among the stars. He had meant to place his brother, Maximus the Mad, in the ...

    Saladin Ahmed continues his powerful and impressive run of Black Bolt with the story of the Inhuman king returning home, only to find that it is not quite the happy return he wanted and the trials of his imprisonment are not yet finished. Often from unexpected places and characters,...

    Ahmed has created something truly unique with this two volume Black Bolt sequence. The story is thoroughly focused on and derived from Black Bolt's character and decisions, grounded solidly in continuity (so far as I know, it's often dangerous to make any such statement), and a deeply ...

    After the unrelenting pleasure that was Hard Time, this second volume of Black Bolt is a real letdown. I mean, it's still generally good and the art is far above average. But in comparison...ehhhhh... Black Bolt and Blinky return to Earth, only to find that Mr. Bolt is no longer qui...

    This volume was a GOOD as the first :) Beautiful art and a beautiful story :) The art is exquisite, the simple traces of the pencil and once again, the use of vibrants colors, giving the story this scifi and dream sequence feel. And I really just want that last page/last issue cover b...

    Ehhhh, I'm going to only give it two stars. I got bored with this volume, realizing that Black Bolt wasn't really in it that much, focusing more on the supporting characters. The novelty and uniqueness (which is still there) wore off, and the art was at times difficult to follow. While...

    Boy, you left me speechless! Just... Wow. I loved the first volume of Ahmed's Exiles, but his Black Bolt saga is even better. The work he did with the characters is just wonderful (I mean, he made me care about Titania and root for the Absorbing Man!), and Ward/Irving/Hans did an amaz...

    An ill-fitting conclusion for a book that started out with epicness and vulnerability. Not even an issue of Frazer Irving's nightmarish art helps seal the deal, all because the plot just doesn't cut it. Especially since a whole issue (and an emotional arc from earlier) is negated by a ...

    When I initially witnessed the first issue's cover of this solo Black Bolt series, I did wonder how can one create a comic solely about a character who can destroy everything with the slightest whisper. However, writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christian Ward found a way as the silent k...

    A HUGE improvement over the last volume. Even the art is starting grow on me. The funeral part was touching but lost a lot of its impact because you know nobody stays dead in comic book world for long, especially when "no body was recovered". But, hey, that's the nature of comic book...

    The artwork here was really great. Still continues on from the previous volume and gives a mini conclusion. Its a little different to anything else Marvel is writing but I think thats why it stands out. ...

    Quite the same qualities and defaults than book one: - Decent plot with a cool twist in the middle, good interactions between characters, one very well done issue (Creel's funeral) and some frightful revelations on Black Bolt's past but... too many explaining captions all over the ...

    The Midnight King has escaped from the Jailer, and now rockets back towards home with Blinky in tow. His first job is to break the bad news about the death of Crusher Creel to Creel?s wife, Titania, and hell hath no fury like a supervillain grieving. And then, when the old enemies of...

    The second half of Ahmed's Black Bolt run isn't as strong as the first. Issue 7 is sad and sweet with a great guest artist. But starting with issue 8, the book runs headlong into complicated Inhumans backstory that it had so skillfully skirted in the first volume. The funeral for Creel...

    i will literally fight marvel to the death for cancelling this ...

    I wanted so badly to love this as much as Volume 1, but I found a lot of the dialogue to be a bit cringy and I didn't feel the need to fully devour this book in one sitting like I did with Volume 1. I do wish it could have continued on though, I'd like to see where it could have gone. ...

    The second volume of Black Bolt is every bit as delightful as the first. The artwork continues to be entirely wonderful, matched only by the joy of the character work, as Ahmed offers strong character beats for several of the characters involved. Oh, and there's some big fight too, ...

    If only all comics could be this gorgeous. ...

    The best Marvel comic of the past two years. Has certainly elevated Black bolt into one of my favourite characters. I certainly felt for out hero. Titania nearly equaled Crusher Creel in this issue. Blinky is great. Christian Ward's artwork is terrific. A hair's width less than t...

    It is a human story about an inhuman and an alien. It is a story about love and facing fears and finding your home, your voice and your family. Ahmed and Ward and the rest of the team did a wonderful job of giving Black Bolt, usually just a stoic, voiceless, humorless character his ...

    Note: This review is for Vol. 1 & 2 of this series Black Bolt is the King of the Inhumans. Well, actually, he was King, but he abdicated his throne and now finds himself in an ancient Inhuman prison out among the stars. He had meant to place his brother, Maximus the Mad, in the ...

    Estaba muy entusiasmado por leer esta obra tras el éxito rotundo que fue la primera parte. Esperaba más narración poética, más momentos emotivos y más simbolismos disfrazados de ciencia ficción. Lamentablemente a mí parecer, en comparación con la primera entrega, palidece un p...

    Saladin Ahmed continues his powerful and impressive run of Black Bolt with the story of the Inhuman king returning home, only to find that it is not quite the happy return he wanted and the trials of his imprisonment are not yet finished. Often from unexpected places and characters,...

    Ahmed has created something truly unique with this two volume Black Bolt sequence. The story is thoroughly focused on and derived from Black Bolt's character and decisions, grounded solidly in continuity (so far as I know, it's often dangerous to make any such statement), and a deeply ...

    After the unrelenting pleasure that was Hard Time, this second volume of Black Bolt is a real letdown. I mean, it's still generally good and the art is far above average. But in comparison...ehhhhh... Black Bolt and Blinky return to Earth, only to find that Mr. Bolt is no longer qui...

    This volume was a GOOD as the first :) Beautiful art and a beautiful story :) The art is exquisite, the simple traces of the pencil and once again, the use of vibrants colors, giving the story this scifi and dream sequence feel. And I really just want that last page/last issue cover b...

    Ehhhh, I'm going to only give it two stars. I got bored with this volume, realizing that Black Bolt wasn't really in it that much, focusing more on the supporting characters. The novelty and uniqueness (which is still there) wore off, and the art was at times difficult to follow. While...

    Boy, you left me speechless! Just... Wow. I loved the first volume of Ahmed's Exiles, but his Black Bolt saga is even better. The work he did with the characters is just wonderful (I mean, he made me care about Titania and root for the Absorbing Man!), and Ward/Irving/Hans did an amaz...

    An ill-fitting conclusion for a book that started out with epicness and vulnerability. Not even an issue of Frazer Irving's nightmarish art helps seal the deal, all because the plot just doesn't cut it. Especially since a whole issue (and an emotional arc from earlier) is negated by a ...

    Black Bolt, Hard Time & Home Free - I read them both immediately and enjoyed them immensely. Absolutely gorgeous art, amazingly profound storytelling. A story of the innate good of us all, even w our own fallibility. So many emotions- but at its core: Hug your loved ones, keep them...

    The art by Christian Ward was already amazing, and then they brought in Stephanie Hans as a guest, who's maybe my favourite Marvel artist ever?! Add a poignant story about family and loss, and it all made me a very happy reader. ...
