Inhuman #1 Review
Inhuman #1 comes months (5 to be exact) after the very heavy and deeply story driven Inhumanity book. For those who didn’t read Inhumanity #1, Black Bolt had essentially launched a weapon that destroyed Attilan and let loose a chemical fog that’s been spreading around Earth transforming any human who may have even a hint of Inhuman DNA within them. Inhuman #1 deals with one special human who’s about to be transformed, one Medusa has been told is “the key”. Whatever that means.
Much like Inhumanity, that has a lot going on, the book is giant and full of lots and lots of information, Inhuman #1 lets you follow a first character who means absolutely nothing, then introduces you to the one Medusa has to rescue from some Blanka looking dude who’s started his own personal crusade, or genocide, it really just depends on how you look at it.
So we have Inhuman #1 that’s not too incredibly fun, somewhat interesting, but does nothing to reel me in for another issue, and art by Joe Madureira who’s a legend in my mind. I’m young enough where books in the 90’s were my prime, and Mad was essentially god. His art is sharp, but I can’t help but feel it’s dated, as so I’m dating myself in the process.
Inhuman #1 will probably sell itself, but I do wonder how it’s going to continue to sell upcoming issues if it follows its simple and basic beginning.
