Editorial Reviews

The Inhumans have always been one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities. A race of genetic freaks, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigan Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers, some extraordinary, some monstrous. But now the kingdom of Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt (who cannot speak for his voice carries the destructive power of an atom bomb) repel the foreign invaders who blast at their outer defense, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt's brother, Maximus the Mad?


This popular series takes a classic Marvel stable of characters, and infuses it with a modern sensibility that includes international politics and an awareness of class systems. Dark and grimly compelling, The Inhumans is one story that won’t be forgotten any time soon.

If you are not in any way familiar with motion comics, I am not sure what particular motion comic would be the best introduction for you, but this is not a bad way to begin. Like the writer of this series, Paul Jenkins, I had never heard of The Inhumans, but this really worked to my advantage, to learn of The Inhumans in this way. I think my father-in-law has perhaps mentioned The Inhumans, but his comic collection is so, AWESOME!, that because he has told me so much about Marvel & its history, this title would have been lost in the shuffle. Before I was injured, I was a freelance illustrator, primarily drawing & painting portraits. Until my father-in-law pulled out some of his comics, it had been over 20 years since I had looked at a comic book. I was depressed at how my gift was & is severely affected, yet he kind of brought me full circle with my art and its beginnings, and enjoying the art of others became strangely therapeutic for me, at least emotionally & mentally. I could never marry comic art with the realism of portraiture, so I was unexpectedly re~freshed from this, and it has been juvenescent for me. This is said to help you understand my particular perspective and why you should not be discouraged by what some other reviews have said. To be sure, motion comics ARE NOT traditional animations. These are works that are being created from artwork that was not originally intended for animation, so the look and feel is pausingly unseductive yet attractively unique, peculiar yet fascinating, all at the same time. Iron Man: Extremis was my introduction to motion comics, as I first discovered it on iTunes. It was not until the 3rd episode that I became aware that these were being made from comic books, and that element was intriguing. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvel Knights Inhumans DVD May 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
The Inhumans have always been my favorite heroes in the Marvel Universe ever since I was introduced to them through mid 70's issues of the Fantastic Four. The Inhumans struck me as something different and very cool. Their battles and team ups with the FF, Sub Mariner, Spiderman and the Hulk among others as well as the in fighting of the royal family itself was often created some of the best and most dramatic stories of all time. As often happens, I had stopped reading comics by the late 1990's and was lost as to what was happening in the Universe. I discovered the Marvel Knights Inhumans graphic novel while floating around on Amazon about a year ago. I loved everything about it. The art and the complex storyline drew me in immediately. This motion comic captures the novel very well. Keep in mind this is NOT full animation so don't expect it to be. Take it for what it is and you'll enjoy the ride.

4.0 out of 5 stars A BRILLIANT Graphic Novel brought to life May 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
When I read the Marvel Knights Inhumans in the late 1990s I was absolutely drawn into the complexity of the story by author Paul Jenkins right away. Add to that the stunning visuals of artist Jae Lee and it was a recipe for greatness that I have turned numerous friends onto over the years. I would love to see this team revisit these characters again someday.
This "motion comic" captures all of the high points and though a bit clunky (like ALL motion comics) it is forgivable because the artwork is so damned good in it's still form. The voice casting is strong. Not EXACTLY what I heard in my head as a reader, but we all bring our own prejudices to the table with a form of literature that has been adapted from another source.
If I have one criticism it would be to not have to go back to the intro and outro title sequences between episodes if trying to watch it as a long form movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars The stories are disjointed and difficult to watch. August 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
I found that this DVD was a bit difficult to watch and follow as the stories while related to each other did not flow as I thought that they should have. If you have followed the inhumans previously you will enjoy this DVD - if not it may be diffcult to watch - Jeff

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it. May 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
An animated comic. Comic book (graphic novels) panels with one or two moving parts, this might be a turnoff for some but I thought it worked. I also thought the plot was good, very mature. Of all of Marvels' superheroes the Inhumans were always my favorite.

I love the Inhumans. They are and have always been my favorite Marvel characters. That being the case it's been a labor of love trying to not only collect their storyline but follow it. How many writers have tried their hand at Attilans royal family? How many artists? How many times has their history been rewritten? Characters (poor Ahura) omitted and maligned? From their very roots they had no real home in the Marvel universe. Black Bolt, Medusa and crew jumped from inbetween the lines of the Fantastic Four to bonus features in a number of Marvels popular titles. They were given a few chances at ongoing series' but nothing ever stuck and they became Marvels ultimate go to guest stars.

When Jae lee and Paul Jenkins tried their hands at giving my favorite inbred dynasty new life I was overwhelmed with excitement. I had never seen them portrayed so vibrantly and their world and culture so thoroughly explored. Ann Nocenti and Bret Blevins come in at a close second with their wrenching tale of Medusas pregnancy back in '88 but I digress. I hoped against my better judgment that the Lee, Jenkins 12 issue run would turn into something more permanent. Unfortunately history has a tendency to repeat itself and the Inhumans were again thrust into obscurity.

Enter 2013. It's been over ten years since the Eisner award winning series ended. The Inhumans have had their ups and downs. Black Bolt is now a polygamist and Medusa is a member of the Fantastic Four for the 2nd time, among other things. As you can imagine I was VERY surprised to see this motion comic on the new release shelf of a large retailer chain of all places. Aren't The Inhumans relegated to the back of bargain boxes or paradoxically behind the counter in display case worthy issues of old Fan Four? Something was up.

I wish the producers of this DVD would specifically state that the animation is of the "stop action" variety and not continuous. Very boring and a disappointment.
