Shout Factory is putting out this gorgeous DVD and I got to watch it!
Every moment of this dvd is packed with the sublime meticulous artwork of Jae Lee, and some impressive voice-over work. Eli Gabay’s (The Devil You Know) work as the narrator lends a mysterious thoughtful mood to each episode and Brian Drummond’s (Dragon Ball Z) well-known tones along with Lisa Ann Beley and Alex Zahara really bring the characters to life well. Following the script of the graphic novel written by Paul Jenkins, the man who made the Inhumans more than just a side note in the Marvel universe, and keeping Jae Lee on the art was truly a brilliant move.
Believe it or not though what made this a really great dvd to me was including the bonus interview/documentary, starring Joe Quesada and Paul Jenkins. It’s 30 minutes I’ll watch many times.
As I’ve said in the past I’m not a huge motion comic fan, but my interest in the Inhumans, the production value of this dvd and the quality of the voice acting have really made this something I can recommend to all Marvel Animation fans and Inhumans fans.

Synopsis from Shout: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. Bonus features: A Look Back at The Inhumans with Eisner Award-Winning Writer Paul Jenkins, Eisner Award-Winning Artist Jae Lee and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada!
