Origin of the Inhumans

Origin of the Inhumans TPB

MARVEL COMICS

(W) Stan Lee (A/CA) Jack Kirby

In 1965, a strange family of outcasts made their debut in the pages of FANTASTIC FOUR. The uncanny Inhumans quickly became more than just another set of adversaries – and they all but took over and made the magazine their own! The mysterious origins of Black Bolt, Medusa, Gorgon, Triton, Karnak, Crystal and Lockjaw were revealed month after month until reader demand gave them their own feature in THOR! Now, the story of the Inhumans and their wondrous, secret land Attilan is collected from the very beginning! From Medusa’s debut as a member of the Frightful Four to the battle to break the Great Barrier, it’s all here in incomparable Stan and Jack fashion! Collecting FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #36, #38, #41-47, #54, #62-65 and ANNUAL #5, plus portions of #48, #50, #52 and #55-61; and material from THOR (1966) #146-152.

New Release Pick of the Week for 8/9/2017

Mister Miracle #1

MISTER MIRACLE #1 (OF 12) (MR)

DC COMICS

(W) Tom King (A) Mitch Gerads (CA) Nick Derington
From the team behind THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON and the Hugo Award-nominated writer of Vision comes a unique new take on one of Jack Kirby’s most beloved New Gods.

Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda. Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.
You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick – except one. He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.

Written by Tom King (BATMAN) and illustrated by Mitch Gerads (The Punisher), this is a MISTER MIRACLE unlike any you’ve read before.

$3.99
