Secret Invasion: Inhumans #1 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Secret Invasion: Inhumans #1, about which I write the following sentences: "Halfway through 'Secret Invasion,' do we really need another tie-in series to launch? Well, we're getting a bunch of them this week whether we need them or not, and while I haven't read the others yet, I can say that 'Secret Invasion: Inhumans' is worth your time. It's a great start, and an excellent Marvel debut for 'Heroes' writer Joe Pokaski."

"Like the more effective and interesting 'Secret Invasion' tie-ins -- 'Captain Britain and MI: 13' and 'Black Panther' come to mind -- this one takes place away from the center of the action. I suppose you could say that the entire Earth is the center of the action, but with the focus of the main series on New York and the Savage Land, and with most tie-ins filling in back story, it's nice to see how some of the lesser illuminated corners of the Marvel Universe are dealing with the invasion in their own way. And what makes 'Secret Invasion: Inhumans' so good is that it operates as an excellent Inhumans story as much as it's a story about Skrull hijinx.
