About the Author

An Eisner Award winner for his work on Inhumans, writer Paul Jenkins helped reveal Wolverine's untold history in Origin and introduced a "forgotten" hero of the Marvel Universe in Sentry. In addition to his comics work on such series as Spectacular Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk and Civil War: Front Line, he is a prolific writer of video games, including Radical Entertainment's Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

Artist Jae Lee made a name for himself on Marvel's Namor the Sub-Mariner, his gothic style a stark departure from traditional comic art. After a short X-Factor arc, Lee decamped to the newly formed Image Comics - illustrating the Youngblood Strikefile and WildC.A.T.s Trilogy miniseries, and debuting his own creation, Hellshock. During the next few years, Lee returned to Marvel for a Spider-Man arc and provided pinups and covers for several companies - including titles in Marvel's X-Men and Punisher families, Image's Bloodstrike and Shadowhawk Gallery, Tekno's Gene Roddenberry's Xander in Lost Universe, Harris' Vampirella, and DC/Vertigo's Transmetropolitan. In 1998, he won an Eisner Award for his distinctive work with writer Paul Jenkins on the Marvel Knights series Inhumans. He and Jenkins re-teamed in 2000 for The Sentry, the multilayered tale of a deliberately forgotten Silver Age hero. Continuing his Marvel Knights work, Lee illustrated Grant Morrison's Fantastic Four: 1234, an arc of Captain America and the Hulk/Thing: Hard Knocks miniseries. In 2003, he drew Dreamwave's fan-favorite Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover, and provided covers for DC's Manhunter and Batman: Gotham Knights. After drawing an arc of Ultimate Fantastic Four, Lee was tapped to lend his distinctive style to Marvel's Dark Tower adaptations - bringing Stephen King's characters to life in the pages of The Gunslinger Born, The Long Road Home, Treachery and The Battle of Jericho Hill. Subsequently, Lee provided covers for Wolverine and Namor: The First Mutant. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Paperback
The Inhumans by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee is an incredible work. Told in 12 chapters, the story takes a bit of time to unfold and new readers will need a while to familiarize themselves with all of the characters. But once these two areas are handled...get ready for a fun ride.
It's impossible to describe the depth of this story. What other writers would present as a simple battle between government soldiers and a race of super-powered beings...Paul Jenkins pulls so much more from. There is slavery, penance, insanity, forgiveness, shame, understanding, heroism, loyalty, blind loyalty, manipulation, emancipation, love, and then there is family.
What makes The Inhumans work so well beyond the immense story is the uniqueness of the characters. The race of inhumans each have their own individuality expressed in their dialogue, their actions, and most powerfully in their appearence. What we might view as deformed...they would view as beautiful...two worlds that meet through a mirror (a symbol that is touched upon in the narrative). Pages could be written about these characters but then that would spoil the read and discovery so I'll confine mine to two characters.
TRITON - In what is probably the strongest chapter of the book, this character reflects back on his witnessing of the sinking of the Lusitania. It was his first encounter with humans in a positive light and lead him to think and rethink his thoughts on these creatures of a different race. The paintings of Triton standing on the decks of the Lusitania in present day are haunting.
BLACK BOLT - The king of the Inhumans who is not permitted to speak because his vocal cords can decimate mountains. He is also not permitted thought balloons because that would rob the character of so much.

Format: Paperback
This is easily one of the top 5 graphic novels I have ever read (and I have read quite a few of them). I'll keep this short and say that both the story and the art are breath-taking. Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee basically made a name for themselves with this series. It shines a new light on the so-called "superheroes," The Inhumans. More about politics, evolution, and power than any real superheroics, The Inhumans is not to be missed.
One other note -- 9 year olds will be completely lost in this story. This is definitely NOT a children's book, not because of content, but for sophistication. It's insulting to all graphic novel readers for Amazon to label them as children's books simply because of their medium.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I have read Marvel Comics for a good portion of my life, my acquaintance to the Inhumans was only through the cursory exposure from various X-Men storylines. I purchased the TPB mostly because of positive reviews and an admiration of Jae Lee's art. Boy am I happy that I did.
This work serves as a superb demonstration of what the comic book can achieve as an art form. The multiple story arcs all hold the reader's interest well. The writing is tight and tells a surprisingly complex story in 12 issues with few wasted words/frames. Jenkins manages to introduce the book's characters and backgrounds in a natural, uncontrived manner, which is a rare feat in this medium.
The artwork is a pure joy. Jae Lee's style fits the material and sets the mood perfectly. The amount of detail in each frame, especially involving facial expressions, is remarkable and goes a long way to drive the storyline.
If I have one criticism, it would be that certain elements of Jenkins' writing style are overused throughout the book and become slightly irritating. Still, this book easily ranks as one of the best TPBs I have ever picked up.

Format: Paperback
I'm not exagerating when I say that this is pretty near the best comic story I have ever read. The only thing that could compare is Frank Miller's work on Batman and Sin City. The first thing to catch my eye was Jae Lee's artwork. I still think of his work on WildCATs Trilogy as some of the worst art I have ever seen. But with each new page of Inhumans, I was blown away by his dark, forboding style. He has refined his technique into a thing of true beauty. The story, however, is what truly sets Inhumans apart. Paul Jenkins is able to juggle an incredible number of complex characters while still dealing with issues of racism, classism, fear, and hatred. Somehow, he handles so much and still prevents the story from ever becoming bogged down. Through it all, he uses a technique rarely found in comics today, subtlety. If you like comics, buy this. If you just enjoy a good story, buy this. If you know how to read, for Pete's sake, buy this. As a final sidenote, Lee and Jenkins are presently three issues into a five issue series for Marvel called "Sentry." If you have the ability to get your hands on them, I highly recommend these as well. Keep and eye on these two boys, they are by far the best Marvel has to offer.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Timothy Drake on October 19, 2000
Format: Paperback
This superbly crafted work of super-heroic fiction collects Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee's inspiring 12-issue maxi-series 'Inhumans.'
No doubt this earns a place on the shelf against the likes of Watchmen, Maus, From Hell and select others. Certainly one of the better books of sequential art.
An extraordinary team-up of writer/artist. Very few mesh so well together to drive the story to levels that render emotional vehemence whilst providing undaunted prose (so clearly displayed in issue #9).
No knowledge of Marvel history/continuity is needed.
Please read also 'Sentry' of the same creators. Look for it, it will be here soon.
