• Inhuman chrysalises have appeared across the world...some want them, some want to destroy them...and your favorite superhuman students are caught in the crossfire!
• From the pages of INFINITY: THE HUNT comes more craziness from the Avengers Academy and the Jean Grey School - written by THE HUNT's Matt Kindt!

    The art could not hurt such a wonderfully written by Matt Kindt touching on a powerful subject being mixed with the huge Inhumanity event going on. The ending definitely left me wanting more and this is one tie in worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Inhumanity: The Awakening begins the case for "Attilans" as another branch of Marvel's superheroes, but shows little to distinguish them just yet. Read Full Review

    The art can also be a weak point at times, specifically in terms of facial work. Just like Joshua complained about Wonder Woman's bizarre eyes in Justice League 3000 today, this issue features a lot of freaky, bug-eyed characters. Paul Davidson's general storytelling is sound, but the strange, overly large approach to rendering eyes can really be a distraction in many panels. Read Full Review

    Inhumanity: the Awakening is an good start to a mini-series, but a few points annoyed me to the point where it became just an ok start. Read Full Review

    The only larger problem in this issue is more of a problem with the Inhumanity event in general. The success of "Inhumanity: The Awakening" helps to establish the viability of the newfound Inhumans as emotional and narrative drivers, but by emphasizing their shared experiences with the students at the Jean Grey School and Avengers Academy, it doesn't do much to differentiate the new batch of Inhumans as a group in the Marvel Universe. Introducing a whole new class of superhuman suggests that they have something new to bring to the table, and "Inhumanity: The Awakening" only treads over familiar (if fertile) emotional ground.

    They're kids, but they've people too. Heroes in the own right. Too many writers focus on their youth, really alienating some readers like myself. The reliance on social media here killed me, really sapping the enjoyment of what should have been a fun story. Read Full Review

    Despite being part of the Inhumanity event taking place in Marvel comics, I don't see anything in this book being important to the overall event. I highly recommend you save your money and pick up something much better than this lackluster book. Read Full Review

    I could do a more written-out conclusion on how “Inhumanity: The Awakening” is but in the spirit of the opening two-page splash where hashtags are used indiscriminately to describe the events occuring in “Inhumanity Proper” (#Gov't conspiracy does not function as a hashtag on multiple levels by the way) all I'll have to say is this: #hotmess.

    The rest of the story essentially is told through the tweets and insagram uploads of Fiona, the struggling new Inhuman and the other social media handles mentioned earlier. Again, it is all worthless with the exception of Fiona's entries which actually progress the story. The big reveal at the end is that her dick-head brother has also transformed and is in the process of blowing some shit up. Mediocre writing and art is the name here. Blah, blah, blah.
