Infinity #2 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)
This issue is, honestly, a lot better than expected. I had assumed that Black Bolt's secret was that he was holding onto the remaining Infinity Gem, so I was surprised by the revelation that it is actually the fact that the Inhumans are harboring his son. Moreover, Hickman actually manages to infuse some emotion into the scenes related to the Battle of the Corrdior. It's not quite Giffen's amazing portrayal of the trials and tribulations of the United Front in "Annihilation," but it at least manages to show the emotional impact of the Galactic Council's fight against the Builders. As I said, it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.
