•  In an alien prison far from Earth, Black Bolt lost a friend and ally. Such is the life of heroes. But for those left behind, a noble death is little comfort. Far better to seek retribution - and Black Bolt is first in line!
•  But he has more than angry loved ones to worry about. A corrupted version of Steve Rogers imprisoned and tormented his people. Is it time for the Midnight King's revenge?
Rated T+

    Black Bolt #9 is a phenomenal read with great art. It bears a lot of emotional weight, and I cannot recommend it enough. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    This truly is one of Marvel's best ongoing series, there's so much heart and soul to it as well as a fantastic visual style. I'm intrigued to see where they're taking the character next following his return to Earth. I highly recommend picking this title up if you haven't yet! Read Full Review

    One of the greatest strengths of this current series of Black Boltis that writer Saladin Ahmed can make a character who never says anything at all convey more emotion and feel more human than characters who speak twice as much. Read Full Review

    Even when taking the action to Earth, Ahmed and Ward continue to blow our minds with their vision and execution. Black Bolt is an abstract and unique spectacle that carries a lot of heart at it's core. Read Full Review

    Visually, this issue is not done in a style that I enjoy and it may be better off in the hands of another artist. The distorted faces and bodies are distracting, even though a few panels manage to capture the emotions of the widow. Read Full Review
