Black Bolt 009 (2018)
So, what's TMB think of Odinson and Cap attending Absorbing Man's funeral? Attending his funeral populated by the wanted criminals, The Wrecking Crew, and letting them slide by? Titania's current criminal record is unclear. Both "ex-Avengers" independently got the heads up of supervillain gathering and went alone *hmmph* - of course FBI and CIA are probably chasing their tails. So, now the question is what write will bring Ab'Man back to life and how soon do Thor fans want it?
The cover is beautiful but sadly MEANINGLESS other than Steve and Black Bolt meet. Does anyone here like the art?! Okay, the few panels of Mary in that dress looked nice and you can feel that one punch
. As for the story, it was a quite touching tribute to Crusher Creel through the eyes of the engaging Mary's eyes and Blinky's telepathic memory recall. Hopefully Titania gets involved next issue
to save Blinky 'cuz her charactertization was entertaining. BB didn't really do much other than mourn quietly - in his own book.

During the Dan Jurgens run, Creel was an ally of Thor when Thor got the Odin Power because he wanted to repay Thor for saving Titania. I thought that was kind of cool, but Creel was reverted back to being a bad guy again after that. Did Thor see the Wrecking Crew in this issue? They were pretty big villains, but they haven't been used in the title in a looooooong time. If I was writing Thor, the first thing that I would do is rebuild the Crew back up and make them a part of his rogues gallery again.
