The parallels between Silent War and the War on Terror are obvious. Hine is challenging us to rethink our attitudes towards our enemy and maybe consider their point of view. And thats what good comics should do. Read Full Review
This may be a series which I continue to follow through to its end because it promises great comic fun, something which we need more of in these days of dark and gritty so called "mature" comics. Read Full Review
Hines intelligent writing allows us to sympathise with the Inhumans anti-American cause - if not their methods and his depiction of a very modern style of warfare between the two peoples promises a thoughtful and intelligent miniseries with a fair amount of traditional superhero action thrown in. This should entertain those who have been enjoying the continuing fallout from House of M, and even those who are unconvinced may find themselves pleasantly surprised by Hines insight into the current War on Terror.

There is one scene featured in this issue that was actually fairly decent. The interrogation scenes were decent, but they too fall into the War on Terror category of easy clich. There is also a scene featuring Black Bolt which describes how he feels about the events of the issue. While these scenes are fairly decent, they come much too late in the comic book and come across as too much of a blatant parallel to the War on Terror that they fail to raise this title from the depths. Unless you are a huge fan of the Inhumans, theres really no need to pick this book up. Read Full Review
