Early Review Secret Invasion: Inhumans #2

Can the Inhumans Stop the Skrulls?

Check out the beautiful cover by Stjepan Sejic.  Very nice.

Last issue we saw where Black Bolt has been.  Now we get to see the Inhumans standing up to the Skrulls.

The Inhumans have usually bored me.  I know they're a noble race but they just never really interested me much.  I could appreciate their place in the Marvel Universe and the fact that Black Bolt was important enough to be included in the Illuminati.  It was a big deal that he was replaced by a Skrull.  We hadn't heard much about it until now.

This issue gives us what we want to see.  We see the Inhumans kicking some major Skrull butt.  They seem to be doing a better job than the Earth-based heroes.  They do seem to have the power and skills to turn the tide of the invasion. 

The battle still is not won as Black Bolt is still being held captive.  The Skrulls aren't just giving him a holiday.  They're out to discover the secrets of his power.  It's not a pretty sight.  There is also another Inhuman/Skrull reveal. 

This issue has definitely picked up since the last issue. I'm now looking forward to issue #3.

I give this a surprising, 4.5 out of 5

Here is the preview thanks to Marvel.


The insane invasion hits the moon as an army of Super-Skrulls lay siege on Attilan! As the Inhuman Royal Family defends their city with their lives, Medusa proves that she'll do anything to find answers about Black Bolt. But how far is too far?
