Three new Inhumans books head to comic shops in 2017

The Inhumans are joining Marvel’s X-Men and Daredevil, with a trio of new comics in 2017.

Expanding universe

We already know that Marvel Comics will be growing their Daredevil and X-Men sub-universes considerably. The X-book revival is going to be huge, there’s no way around that. It’s something that fans of Marvel’s mutants have been after for years (literally). Frankly, I’d be shocked if the new push wasn’t absolutely huge.

For the first time ever too, Daredevil’s corner of the Marvel U is getting built out. Not only will the current book run on, but it’ll be joined by three more. Kingpin, Elektra, and Bullseye will all be getting solo titles.

And now… Inhumans. It was thought by some that the most far-out of Marvel’s ‘teams’ might be getting nudged out of the way in 2017. After all, since the outcome of Inhumans vs X-Men is a bevy of X-titles, well how great could the Inhumans be doing after the event?

Pretty well apparently.

“For anybody who is even slightly curious about the Inhumans, or for anybody who might be looking to check back in with them, these launches are for you,” said editor Wil Moss. “Exciting new directions, crazy talented creative teams, and a different vibe for each of these three books. ROYALS is epic and intimate all at once, opening up all-new corners of the Marvel Universe on a monthly basis. SECRET WARRIORS is gonna be a real crowd-pleaser, a true roller coaster of a story with a cast of all your favorites (plus a few surprise team-members). BLACK BOLT is the line’s secret weapon, an intense exploration of the unknowable King of the Inhumans, with visuals like you’ve never seen – believe me.”

Sound good? I’m not a fan really, and it does to me. Well, at least Secret Warriors and Black Bolt do. I’m not crazy about the idea of Royals personally, but I’m sure someone is.

Here’s a deeper look at all three, which you can expect to see on the racks and on Marvel’s digital download platform in 2017.

  • It all kicks off in April as blockbuster creators Al Ewing (Ultimates, New Avengers) and JonBoy Meyers travel to the stars and beyond in ROYALS #1! Abdicating the throne and leaving the destiny of Earth’s Inhumans in the hands of the next generation, the Royal Family of Inhumans will travel to the far reaches of space on a grave mission. Back to the Kree homeworld and beyond, they’ll seek out he origins of the transformative Terrigenesis itself. They must uncover who they are, if they ever hope to discover who they may be. And thousands of years from now, the legends will say that seven set out on the journey, but only six returned…
  • Then, Hugo Award Nominated novelist Saladin Ahmed (Throne of the Crescent Moon) makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside fan-favorite artist Christian Ward (Ultimates) to bring you BLACK BOLT #1! With a voice that could crack a planet in half, the monarch of the Inhumans finds himself somewhere he never thought possible – imprisoned on the edges of the cosmos! The newest resident of a prison designed to house the most dangerous criminals in the galaxy, Black Bolt must throw his lot in with murderers and thieves in an effort to plot the impossible: an escape!
  • Finally, the action returns to Earth as the next generation of Inhumans comes together to keep the future of their race alive in SECRET WARRIORS #1! Rising star creators Matthew Rosenberg (KingpinRocket Raccoon) and Javier Garron (Star-Lord, Inhumans vs. X-Men) bring you a tale of action, adventure and a group of heroes that play by their own rules.
