As Marvel prepares to wipe the slate of all its universes several tie-in books are being announced and with the recent focus on the Inhumans due to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. it is not a shock that the Inhumans factor into the proverbial wiping of the slate. I have always had a love/hate relationship with the Inhumans but over the last few months I have been really impressed with the character development of Medusa and Black Bolt. Charles Soule did an amazing job with Death of Wolverine and Inhuman so I know that this series will definitely be worth checking out when it arrives in May. Check out the variant cover by W. Scott Forbes as well.
BATTLEWORLD Ignites in INHUMANS: ATTILAN RISING #1!
Charles Soule & John Timms Deliver a New Spin on The Inhumans for SECRET WARS!
New York, NY—January 29th, 2014— There’s a rebellion brewing on Battleworld. Stretching far and wide into every dominion across the strange, patchwork realm, underground revolutionaries prepare for the uprising. Today, Marvel is pleased to announce INHUMANS: ATTILAN RISING #1, a new Secret Wars series from New York Times Bestselling writer Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman) and artist John Timms (Nova, Harley Quinn)!
Medusa, ruler of Attilan and Queen of the Inhumans, has been tasked with rooting out the rebels, and crushing their resistance beneath her steely tendrils of hair. Yet a chance encounter with the head of the insurgency will change everything. A man named – BLACK BOLT! And things are about to get complicated.
“One of the ideas behind Inhumans: Attilan Rising from the start was to put Medusa, Black Bolt, Reader, Iso and other characters from Inhuman into a new context,” says Charles Soule, in an interview with Marvel.com. “That’s part of the fun of an event like Secret Wars. Things don’t have to be the way we’re used to seeing them.”
“My initial concept was ‘life during wartime’,” continued Soule. “The relationships we’re used to seeing will be different in this story. Huge drama, spies, glamour, action, betrayal, sabotage. My hope is that it won’t feel like anything else out there.”
The drums of war beat for the Inhuman nation. But when the dust clears, who will rise? Find out as BATTLEWORLD comes to the Inhumans in INHUMANS: ATTILAN RISING #1 this May![/blockquote]
