ABC will be debuting the TV series Inhumans on Friday, September 29th, 2017.
I will be recommending some comics featuring the Inhumans between now and the release of the first episode.
Today’s pick is Inhumans – Once and Future Kings #1
Writer – Christopher Priest – Artist – Phil Noto
The story features a young Black Bolt before he was king of the Inhumans, before his brother Maximus went mad, and Medusa before she was queen and Black Bolt’s wife.
The solicit for the first issue – “A king in training. A brother destined for madness. These are the early days of the Boltagon legacy. When the king of the Inhumans is attacked, Black Bolt and Maximus spring into action to save their leader! But when Black Bolt loses control, what are the consequences for his future kingdom – or his own family? “
If you want to get a feel for the characters before watching the show, this comic is definitely for you.
There is also a two page Lockjaw back up story written by Unbeatable Squirrel Girl’s Ryan North and drawn by Gustavo Duarte.
Inhumans Once and Future Kings #1 is available now. Issue 2 will be released on September 6th, 2017
