The Volume One wiki last edited by X35 on 09/19/13 12:03PM View full history

In 1965, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby gave a strange family of outcasts their debut in the pages of Fantastic Four. Responding to their Shakespearean pathos and Kirby's out of this world character designs, the fans loved them - and wanted more! The mysterious origins of Black Bolt, Medusa, Gorgon, Triton, Karnak and the rest of their wondrous, secret world was initially revealed in a series of Thor features.

But that only whetted reader's appetites - and so came their first headlining series in Amazing Adventures! Launched by writer/artist Jack Kirby, the new series took the Inhumans to their roots, defending their kingdom against the aggressions of mankind - especially against the ultimate threat of the Mandarin.

Then a team with uncanny credentials, Roy Thomas and Neal Adams, took up the crown and sent the Inhumans on a mythical exodus into the world of man. It was a saga exploring the social issues of the era and, of course, topped of with a heavy dose of Inhuman action! Also featuring a rare Medusa and Black Bolt tale from Marvel Super-Heroes and a trio of satirical tales from Not Brand Echh by Stan, Jack and their blushing Bullpen!

Collecting Thor issues #146 to 152, Amazing Adventures #1 to 10, The Avengers #95 and Marvel Super-Heroes #15 with bonus selections from Not Brand Ecch #6 & 12, written by Jack Kirby, Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway and Archie Goodwin, penciled by Kirby, Neal Adams, Mike Sekowsky and Gene Colan; features cover artwork by Neal Adams.
