• There is a rebellion brewing on Battleworld and it stretches far and wide into every domain. Medusa, ruler of Attilan, is tasked with uncovering the leader of this uprising and scuttling it with extreme prejudice. When she discovers the leader of this rebellion is Black Bolt, however, things get complicated.

    Inhumans: Attilan Rising #1 is a can't miss issue for anyone keeping up with Secret Wars and I cannot recommend this one highly enough. Soule's script is excellent, and Timms and D'Armata deliver amazing visuals. The end result is one of the best comics you will read this week, and I can't wait to see what is coming next.

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies May 31, 2015

    The non-Inhuman characters in Attilan Rising are handled well. Theres a gangster Ghost Rider who wouldnt look out of place in a weird, twisted Goodfellas, and the Hulk who serves as the opening threat is handled very well. The Inhumans that we do spend time with are just as great as well, and we find Medusa, Manhattans Regent, getting along with Doom in a short but effective exchange. The book itself seems to have slipped under the radar in regards to other Secret Wars tie-ins coming out this week but one things for sure is that Inhumans: Attilan Rising is probably one of the best, and serves as a quality new addition to the vast amount of Marvels titles on shelves right now.

    I know Charles Soule has planned and labored hard to construct the modern legend of the Inhumans, but this issue offers so much more intrigue and opportunity for further developments free of continuity. "Battleworld" is the only continuity "Inhumans: Attilan Rising" #1 needs. Soule, Timms, Poggi, D'Armata and Cowles put a new spin on the Inhumans, on Battleworld and on Lord Doom's inner circle with design leads from Dave Johnson. This comic feels important and, based on what's presented here, it is important. I'm in. I was ready to let this one slip, but this is a good read that has earned my attention for the duration.

    As is the case with the remainder of their stories, many will probably choose to ignore the Inhumans when choosing which titles to follow, but once again the creative team has proven that this superhero team is here to stay on the new Marvel landscape. For those that have not been following the main series, this is as good a place to start as any, and for those that have, they will be happy to see some of the familiar faces here. Overall, it is that the creative team has managed to keep the characters intact within Battleworld. In other cases it is how the heroes react to being in Battleworld, but in this rare case it seems that it is how Battleworld will react to these characters. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Jun 1, 2015

    Charles Soule is a writer who has made his name in comics with his surprising takes on established properties. He killed Wolverine with grace, kept Swamp Thing true to his horror roots, and is now bringing the regality back to the Inhumans. With Inhumans: Attilan Rising #1, he aims to keep that same level of regality in the larger narrative of Secret Wars, but falls prey to the perilous first issue trap of telling instead of showing. Thankfully, this front-loaded debut issue is rendered by a capable art team and plays its trump card of a newly charming Black Bolt at the precisely right time, sending readers out on a high note to hopefully pick up a fully charged second issue. Attilan may be on the rise, but this month, it takes a bit longer than anticipated for it to get fully up to speed. Read Full Review
