With all due respect to Joe Mad, I think Ryan Stegman is way better suited to this. I enjoyed the first issue well enough, but didn't pick up the second or third; I think I'll be back on board for this.

I am getting scared by how much Marvel is pushing Inhumans on us. I really don't see a future film where the leads are a guy who can't talk and a woman whose hair grows super long....

It can work.

After all,I hear that they made one about a talking raccoon and a tree....

@cameron83: ha, indeed :D it's not an unworkable concept.

@pixel_kaiser: I agree. I love me some Joe Mad art, but Ryan Stegman seems to be having more fun with his art in this, and he seems pretty ambitious with his backgrounds here. Not everyone fits on every title. I didn't much like Ryan Stegman's Wolverine art, but his Scarlet Spider, Superior Spider-Man, and now Inhuman seems to be where he's really putting in some awesome work :D

I really want an Inhuman movie. If Guardians of the Galaxy can be do, so can the Inhumans.

As opposed to a film about a guy who stretches, another shoots fire, one is made of rock, & the Hot chick turns invisible? As long as any actress playing Medusa has her Hot piece of ass in a skin-tight suit.

Okay who is this guy he looks too badass. He almost looks like he should be an anime character.

I with this new Inhuman was the main character and not just another human torch.

Let's hope Inhumans don't become a thing.

Rumor has it that Marvel plans to push the Inhumans in a big way, along with Guardians of the Galaxy, in an apparent attempt to cash in on the film rights for each.

As much as I am a big Fantastic Four fan, I must admit that your post was very funny, cobramorph!

Looks good, but I want to know where issue 3 is.

This new characters sounds like a comics' fan dream come true. The ability to bring to life things he reads? Could you imagine? I think I've found a new favourite super power, haha.

Marvel seems to be having a lot of characters appearing in a lot of books. I wonder what Thor is doing in this one.

Why would anyone be scared that Marvel are trying to promote Inhumans? If its a success great buy if not it'll be cancelled. What's there to be scared of? "Oh no Marvel don't try and make your Inhumans popular your going to give me nightmares" I don't get it.

@consafo80: I don't think people are scared the of idea of promoting the inhumans themselves but more of what marvel motives are behind the scenes. A lot marvel's marketing for this series has been make them out as the new X-Men. Tag lines like "Strangest heroes of them all" are very X-MEN esque and the idea of having normal people suddenly realize they have super powers and are different from normal humans is basically the x-men core idea.

Additionally Matt Fraction fall out with marvel over what marvel planned to do with this series and then replaced him with their Yes Man Charles Soule. People are concerned after the marvel internal memo about the fantastic four appearances. The latest Marvel/AvengersNow! Initiative didn't feature any character that marvel didn't have movie rights to. there where no x-men or fantastic four members or Spiderman on promo image and Marvel have got Charles Soule taking the most popular x-men off the board for a while.


People are concerned about Disney/Marvel Marketing Machine as much as Marvel and many writers say its not true, there is an alarming pattern is slowly emerging.
