I've read a lot of comics.
R. A. White
His work is very detailed, but contains a large amount of shadow, giving the story a sense of mystery.

Also, Lee's art is beautiful.

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.

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
Jenkins captured the essense we never knew about the Inhumans. I never read the Inhumans in my life. I only read reveiews and on-line comments on this series. So with extra money, I gave this a try. Like I said, Jenkins gave me the Inhumans I NEVER knew. They're pretty cool after the read. The art of course is indescribable. It's simply stunning. But the story is complicated and very fresh. No wham bam pow boom! It has political intrigue, schemeing plots, suspense, and downright horror. It's not might vs. might, it's might vs. right. The Inhumans could easily punched their way out of trouble, but they showed us how truely ingenius they are and in doing so, how heroic as well. Jenkins takes heroism to a whole different and provoking level as if he is telling us the difference between being human and being a superhero. The Inhumans tradepaperback is not cheap. But it is printed on good paper and is great to keep on a bookshelf. I'd recommend it, but I will reserve some caution. The story is compelling but also complicated and twisted. The artwork is supurb,but there's so much going on, the art will lose itself to the story and vice versa. Many readers may become bored or lose their minds reading this complex graphic novel. But fear not, if you are unfamiliar with the Inhumans, as I was, it would not hinder your enjoyment. NO backgrounding required. No buying other issues to get the complete story, it's all here. It's truely an imaginative work.
