(oter than the "hes depowered again" thing. book was so good i'll overlook it)

That was a movie quality ending.

I will 100% add this to my physical trade collect. I don't buy many.

I'm just gonna wait to ee if the second arc is as good as the first so I can just buy a collected edition.

I imagine this has 6 more issue at a maximum.

OK, why? 

I took a look at the last issue but couldn't follow the art, glancing through it.  What makes this worth but as a tpb?

I think the premise is intersting as hell. BB sent to the place he meant ti send maximus, and it's worse than anyone imagined

Pairing an ultra powerful, king of a super proud and power race of people with criminals was genius

Creed us great and the bb creed pairing was dynsmite.

It actually humanized black bolt tge right way, not by turning him into a neutered failure. His only friend was a teleporting dog for most his life for basts sake

BB forgotten powers were in full display

Art was unique and really fit the story. Definitely out there but not big standard boring like a lot of books are.

Jmo of course. Im a black bolt fan tho

man, the rejected hug.. right in the feels.

Sign of a great writer though... he is already giving the next writer an "out" to repower Black Bolt as soon as they want. Either by the healing guy or by BB healing his "mind."

give this guy some more books!

I didn't even know he had an adult son. Next issue is going to be emotional or fun. Hopefully both. lol

Black Bolt made Entertainment Weekly best debut comic writer for 2017.

Tearful goodbye. Hope he gets more work on a more popular title.

My LCS owner got around to reading it and she loves it.

More breakout writer praise. He made number 1.

"I have to make a personal confession before we begin talking about how much ass Saladin Ahmed kicks: I’m probably the world’s biggest “Inhumans” detractor. Time after time, relaunch after relaunch, Marvel just can’t get me to care about these characters. So when Ahmed and Christian Ward were announced for a “Black Bolt” book, my prior interest in both of them as creators got me to take a peek. And gosh am I ever glad I did.

In a tumultuous year for the publisher, Ahmed’s steady hand guided Blackagar Boltagon through one of the most entrancing, funny, and surprisingly emotional books that a major publisher put out this year. By taking Black Bolt out of his element and imprisoning him with an unlikely supporting cast (he also makes you care about Crusher Creel, of all people), Ahmed was able to write a Blackagar that was a couple shades different from the stoic, frankly sometimes boring, ruler of Attilan that we’re often presented with. This Black Bolt shows a range of emotion that we’re not used to seeing. And because Ahmed puts the character through the ringer, any time we get to see him smile it feels like it’s earned.

In a book that’s full of imagination and weird visuals, it’s Ahmed’s attention to the emotional core that makes the book such a winner. It may be the only comic his name was on this year, but it was more than enough to make him our breakout writer. – Vince Ostrowski"

Man, dude goes straight for the feels.

Nice use of both Captain America and Odin.

And LASH! I always thought Lash was a cool villain... both design, powers, everything.

I only know Lash from Agents of Shield. Is it the same idea?
