Royals #1 (Comics) Preview

The Inhumans take to the stars in their newest series from Marvel. Their quest? To try and save Inhumanity, or be lost forever.

A far-reaching journey

A myth from the future. A quest to the farthest stars. A legend written across galaxies. This April, the Inhuman royal family departs on an odyssey to save their race in ROYALS #1 – the brand-new series from fan-favorite writer Al Ewing (The Ultimates, U.S.Avengers) and red-hot artist Jonboy Meyers (Teen Titans, Spawn)! Abdicating the throne in the wake of Inhumans vs. X-Men, Marvel’s newest space epic will take the Inhumans to the far reaches of space and beyond!

The knowledge they seek about their true origins could change the course of Inhuman destiny, or damn it for all time. They must uncover who they are, if they are to truly unlock who they might be. Now, Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Gorgon, Flint and Swain – along with Marvel Boy as their guide – will blast off on a mission that could mean salvation for their people. But thousands of years from now, when their legend has passed into myth, they’ll say that seven set out on a journey, but only six returned…

Take a plunge into the unknown on April 5th when ROYALS #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices everywhere!

Space, the final frontier

Did you think the Inhumans were going to stay a main force on the Marvel Universe’s Earth 616? Well it looks like you might have been wrong if you did. I’m included in that of course. I was pretty sure that the X-Men and Inhumans would be sharing the spotlight post IvX. Looks like that definitely won’t be the case though.

I’m sure that there’ll be Inhumans on Earth, I can’t se all of them going away. But the Royal family is heading into the final frontier for what seems like a while. And with that, the group will be getting some much-needed new motivation. I’ve always felt like the Inhumans were treated way too similar to the X-Men in terms of their combined gimmick (born-in powers). Yes, even with the whole ‘moon’ thing.

While they’re not losing that, they’ll be picking up a brand new setting. Placing them into the Marvel Comics ‘cosmic’ pantheon instantly gives them a whole new feel. That’s something that I can get behind, as a non-fan. Actually, just seeing the new direction for Black Bolt and crew gets me pumped for the first issue of Royals, which is pretty much right around the corner.

Have a peek at the preview below and let us know if you feel the same!
