(Edit: I initially marked this original post as "no spoilers" but to avoid confusion - as the ensuing conversation went into spoiler territory - I've checked the spoilers box on this original post.)

I just wanted to mention that the Black Bolt series has finished its first arc, and in my opinion has proven to be a book worth sticking with. Saladin Ahmed is a writer with heart. You may not like Christian Ward's art, but I don't think you'll find it amateurish or sloppy.

I've been waiting like 40 years for a Black Bolt series, and now that I have one, and it's good, I won't willingly give it up. This is almost the only Marvel book I'm buying.

Saladin Ahmed has an actual story to tell. He's developing Black Bolt as a character, and has given him a small supporting cast which will follow him into the next arc. And hey, this is a writer who actually remembered Black Bolt has electron-manipulation powers! Too often all we get is flight/strength/invincible whisper.

I know the art may be a turn-off (even though it's masterful in its own way) but if you can get past it or happen to like it, this book may surprise you.
