    Comic Crusaders - Jamin Pierson Dec 11, 2017

    This comic leaves me wanting to find more by Saladin Ahmed. It leaves me wanting to go back and read the first volume. This comic leaves me wanting the next issue. This comic book accomplishes what comic books are supposed to accomplish. If you are like meand want to jump on board, I recommend it. Don't let this series slip under your radar. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for the next issue myself. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Dec 8, 2017

    Ahmed and Ward bring a touch of the cosmos back to Earth thanks to all the insanity Black Bolt has dealt with in the first arc, and uses it as proof that difficulty reconnecting with people and family is beyond universal. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Dec 6, 2017

    Ward's fully realized insane locales paired with his great facial expressions and composition of the page continues to put me in awe of what this book has achieved with characters so few creators can get right. Black Bolt is so complex and beautiful but every month when I read it, it seems so effortless. Don't make the same mistake I did and miss out on one of the best comics currently published at Marvel!
