Marvel Comics is doubling down on the Inhumans. The Stan Lee-Jack Kirby creation which took center stage in Marvels' Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series and will be featured in their own 2018 Marvel Studios film will get a second ongoing series starting in April.
Repurposing one of their favorite adjectives, Marvel's Uncanny Inhumans by Inhuman's writer Charles Soule and his Death of Wolverine artist Steve McNiven will start life in April as a #0 issue, and according to IGN focuses on Black Bolt. The series will spring out of Inhuman #11 and #12.
Soule says that this new series is a "street-level approach" to the Inhumans' struggle, in contrast to Inhuman being a "big, royal-level story."
While Medusa is front-and-center in Inhuman, her estranged husband Black Bolt will take point in Uncanny Inhumans. The writer does point out that some of the recently introduced new Inhumans will pop up in both, name-checking specifically Reader, Lineage, Inferno, Iso and Frank McGee.
The central villain in the book's inaugural arc will be Kang the Conqueror, as seen on Simone Bianchi's variant cover to #0. Kang was last seen in a recent arc of Uncanny Avengers, and Soule says the despot will be up to his old tricks - i.e. time travel - in this Uncanny Inhumans story.
