    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes May 31, 2014

    This is the only Marvel comic I'm picking up, and if it continues to be as good as this issue I'll continue to purchase it. This is the royal grandeur and epic-ness that Marvel became famous for in the 1960s. This could be the start of a classic. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter Jun 8, 2014

    This series is just as awesome as I expected it to be. It brings back the edges of the Friends of Humanity civil rights movement, but from the point of view of a disease. On top of that, you have Lasher whose mission is to squash the expansion of the Terrigen Mists. Finally you have the political ramifications of the Inhumans returning to the world, in a highly populated place, and in the spotlight. I can't wait to see what is happening next, and July's issue can't come quick enough. Read Full Review

    Coming Up Comics - David Melton May 28, 2014

    I saw in other reviews when issue #1 was released that Matt Fraction walked away from the project. As far as I've heard,that's not the case and Fraction was excited to explore this world. Just wanted to get that out there. That being said, what we are getting from Soule is strong writing and a fascinating story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III May 28, 2014

    When Inhuman and Inhumanity were announced, readers relished the idea of another facet of the Marvel universe, long treated as peripheral, was finally getting a place among the main continuity. After a less-than-earth-shattering opening salvo, it seemed that Inhuman looked to be another misfire of an event. Inhuman #2 puts most of those fears to rest, promising a glorious reign for the Inhumans as Marvel A-listers. Charles Soule, Joe Madureira and Marte Garcia have stepped out from the cloud of a weak first issue and found their work transformed and improved into a properly thrilling comic book yarn. The face of the Marvel universe is changing, and the future looks Nuhuman. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 28, 2014

    Inhuman #2 is a solid issue in a series that will hopefully not be overlooked despite the gap between issues. Dante is a character with a ton of potential and the Inhumans look fantastic by Madureira's hand. Soule and Joe Mad are a strong creative team working to rebuild one of the great empires in the Marvel U, and I'll definitely be coming back for issue #3. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Watsonian May 28, 2014

    Under Soules guidance, one doesnt have to look too hard to see a potential franchise begin established in Inhuman. Yes, the entire team must get this book back on a regular schedule, but what weve seen has been excellent so far. Soule, Madureira, and Garcia are weaving an action-packed story filled with courtly intrigue. So far, it feels like a unique story. Marvel has a chance to create a unique corner in their universe, and so far theyre on course to just that. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Gaumer May 31, 2014

    Inhuman #2 is a strong comic book, introducing new and interesting characters in a world with so many different characters it's tough to find something new, and is entertainingly telling a story that changes a group of characters created in 1965 in a way that they have never been changed before. While there's still a reminiscent X-Men feel to the "birth" of new Inhumans, the whole Royal Family feel and sense of belonging that is integral to the Inhumans truly sets the groups apart, and writer Charles Soule is doing a great job of getting this new and updated dynamic across while keeping to what's made the Inhumans stand apart all along.The Inhumans are flying headlong into the 21st century (finally!) and it's a really fun ride.

    Comic Spectrum - Hank Johnson Jun 3, 2014

    After viewing all of the evidence, I can make a summary judgment that Inhuman is an exceptional book and well worth the cover price. While the art is not to my particular taste, Charles Soule has a great handle on these characters and the Inhuman royal family is in good hands. While there is periculum in mora considering the pace of the first two issues, I think the strength of Soule's writing will carry the day and minimize any impact. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb May 31, 2014

    I'm recommending this book because Joe Madueira doesn't do nearly enough comics and you should pick them up while you can. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson May 30, 2014

    Ultimately, yes, this is a solid improvement over the first issue and that's because Charles Soule and Joe Madureira seem to have something to focus on. Actually, no, that should be someone. The first issue suffered from introducing so many mythological and world-building elements with no emotional core to weight them down, but by focusing on Medusa's attempts to rebuild Attilan and find Black Bolt, the second issue feels much more like the start of the grand epic that Marvel promised us. While the book may have been a victim of circumstance over the late-game change of writers in development, it looks like Soule and Madureira have settled in and hopefully we will get something great out of this.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 29, 2014

    Certainly, Madureira's bold style and figure work remains a selling point, though the amount of times he relies on simple, silhouetted figures in his panels here is frustrating. But in a larger sense, Inhuman disappoints because it isn't aiming big enough or making the most of its premise. The cast and scope remain annoyingly limited. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 30, 2014

    "Inhuman" #2 is depressingly average. It could be a lot better. It could be a lot worse. Maybe once things settle down and Soule's had time to work with the new artist, things can turn around. He's certainly worked wonders on a lot of other series. But for what's supposed to be the next big thing at Marvel, "Inhuman" #2 is just the next thing. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills May 29, 2014

    The Inhumans used to be unique in the Marvel Universe. They used to have style, personality and class. Now Marvel is just turning them into a weak, clearly failed attempt at Mutants 2. Read Full Review
