Ariel Olivetti – Artist
Donny Cates– Writer
August 1, 2018
Last month, we began a new journey in one of the Marvel Universes when was declared on the Inhumans which isn’t anything new for Black Bolt and his kingdom. The only thing is that this was one miniseries event that the world was not going to forget as death was about to knock on their footsteps. The comic book miniseries that I am talking about is called Death Of The Inhumans and it was written by Donny Cates (Secret Wars Journal/Battleworld) and it was illustrated by Ariel Olivetti (Alien Vs Predator: Fire and Stone). In the first issue, we were introduced to the mysterious, but very dangerous Vox who was the Kree’s latest creation in a super Inhuman who was sent to New Arctilan to make the Inhumans surrender to the Kree. Unfortunately as we learned int eh first issue, that there were some casualties which were thousands of it’s citizens including Maximus The Mad, Triton, and Lockjaw. After surveying all the damage done to their home, Black Bolt is forced to rethink things and resort to measures that are not recommended, but before he does that he sends Karnak to visit with the Kree to discuss surrendering terms.
You know that saying, “Sh** just got real”? Yeah that is the expression I had after reading this issue because the end of the comic is like a WTF moment that you don’t want to believe just happened. I mean it was bad enough for me that they killed Lockjaw in the first issue and he is my favorite Inhuman. I know it’s a miniseries, but sometimes I am questioning whether they had made the right decisions in the first two issues, but I am definitely curious as to where this goes for sure. Donny Cates is a very busy man for Marvel lately as he has tackled The Doctor Strange Damnation storyline, Venom, and Cosmic Ghost Rider to name a few. The one thing that I can say is that he hasn’t disappointed me yet so he may just be my favorite Marvel writer out there right now. The story is definitely in your face and it’s intense and one thing is for sure and that is the artwork helps convey it for sure. I am a huge fan of the way Vox looks and I am loving the abilities that he has especially when we see it on the page. I am definitely invested in this right till the end so check it out for yourselves. Check out my grades below:
