July 4, 2018
This post is coming a little, but it’s still technically Friday and I have something good for you guys tonight. I have learned as of late that sometimes there are just way too many miniseries that are being put out by Marvel as opposed to investing some real time and effort into a series. A couple of weeks ago, Marvel decided to release a new event that could shake the Marvel Universe as we know it and with that being said I decided to check it out. On July 4TH, Marvel finally released the promoted event known as The Death Of The Inhumans which is written by one of the busiest guys in the Marvel office in Donny Cates (Venom) and the comic was illustrated by Ariel Olivetti (Daredevil #369). As most know, the Inhumans were essentially created by the Kree as parts of an experiment to create the perfect slaves and soldiers. That was until all of the Inhumans separated and claimed homes for themselves. Now, it’s years later and due to a prophecy. the Kree have gone on a murderous spree with the help of a new breed of Inhuman in the Super Inhuman known as Vox and he is sending a message to Black Bolt that he is reading loud and clear.
I honestly didn’t think that I was going to enjoy this comic only because I am not a huge fan of the Inhumans, but this Vox character is a bad ass. He makes an instant impact right from the get go and he does it often. There are things that he does that you may not like if you are a fan of the Inhumans and I was shocked with some of them and how many. Donny and Ariel did an amazing job of bringing in Vox and how they did it because his entrance was an epic one for sure. One thing that I will say is that I am little critical of how the comic looked because there were some pages that left much to be desired for me and then there were pages that blew me away. Overall, I think she did a pretty good job with the comic and I am definitely going to be returning to read the next issue and that is a fact. One of the things that I liked is that when Black Bolt speaks, it’s with his hands and they did a great job conveying that in the issue and that made me happy to see that. I think this is a comic that you all should give a shot otherwise check out my grades below:
