Secret Wars hasn’t concluded yet, but that doesn’t stop Charles Soule and James Asmus from telling the story of what’s going on with the Inhumans. I have kept up with Soule’s Inhuman series and I love what he has done with them. I couldn’t wait to dive into this all new all different title. The Terrigen Cloud is moving across the globe creating NuHumans along the way. Crystal’s team of Inhumans are tasked with helping them and monitoring the mysterious Skyspears that have appeared around the globe. Just another day in the neighborhood for our Inhuman heroes.
The main story is really good as it introduced new characters as well as threats to the NuHumans, doing an amazing job of telling us what is happening around the world. It’s also nice seeing Gorgon step into the role of a mentor, but you can tell that after being paralyzed he has become harsher. As always there are humans who fear them and begin to start rallies to come after them. It’s interesting how people are quick to turn on an ally when they find out that ally is a NuHuman. The writing was on point and I didn’t have any qualms about it.
I enjoyed the B story as well which covers the Inhumans having a UN inspection. James Asmus does an amazing job of going over what the Inhumans are about and having Swain greet them was an interesting start: if the Inhumans want to help, they have to show the UN they are not monsters or villains. There is also a surprise appearance later on in the story, but I wonder if there will be repercussions from that appearance down the line.
Stefano Caselli did a great job on the art in the main story and I don’t have a complaint about it. The new look for the characters and action is done very well, I’ve never seen a water attack so beautiful. Nico Leon does the art for the second story and it’s pretty good, though not as detailed in some areas compared to the other artist it shows you the story unfold. Colors are done with amazing degree for both stories and the colors used for attacks look wonderful and pop with flare.
All New Inhumans was a great first issue. The team of Soule and Asmus did an excellent job on this title. We get new characters, old characters and new threats. The stories were interesting and the artwork from Stefano Caselli and Nico Leon with colors by Andres Mossa were filled with pop. If you’re new to the Inhumans, check this title out.
