THE KING OF THE INHUMANS BREAKS HIS SILENCE! Black Bolt’s mighty voice is his greatest gift…and since childhood, it has been his greatest curse. Recruited with four other heroes to read from the Darkhold, a powerful evil text written by the elder god Chthon, Black Bolt thought he was signing up for a battle befitting a king. But the true battlefield…is his own mind. Critically acclaimed writer Marvel Russell brings you a scream-worthy story that will break an empire!

    I have always seen Black Bolt as an intriguing, powerful but hindered character. His power has placed him into a position of powerlessness at times that is only rivaled by Cyclops. Now by choosing to aid the other hero's efforts to stop both Doom and Chthon, Black Bolt stands to lose everything including himself. Trapped in his own head, unable to express himself vocally because of his power, his mind becomes every bit of a prison as the planet Terros is for the Inhuman king. Read Full Review

    The Darkhold: Black Bolt emphasizes its own tale of horror and executes on its premise quite well, regardless of how this may factor into the larger event design. Read Full Review

    Darkhold has been a surprising little mini event for me. I didn't expect much, then those expectations were smashed and now, this book has effectively lowered them again. Where is the horror? Where is the twist? Where is the sting in the tail? Maybe a book like this is needed to allow future books to bring the heat with only two more issues to go. Read Full Review
