I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Let me translate: this is still transcendently gorgeous, but I improved upon that later.
Sighs. If I didn't have that not-so-secret Nick Spencer boycott, I'd totally do it. I've purchased both ODY-C - all I can find - and Black Bolt, and I feel really shitty about one writer making poor decisions with a character influencing me not supporting Ward. I will do this: spread the word. He's amazeballs. He's been super nice to me on Twitter, and this is, quite frankly, after I read Black Bolt #1 and fell in love with his work.
Love. So. Much.
I will also look for whatever he illustrates - that isn't written by Spencer - and buy that. I'm so, so close to breaking my Spencer boycott but I know I won't like it: I'll be influenced by what Spencer's done later on and mostly feel shitty reading it.
I will also look into if Ward has some kind of Patreon or something where I can make a small donation.
So, I'm not e-mailing him about a commission, but I really, really, really want to...
