    A solid issue that further cements what's going on while expanding and teasing more of where it can go. Read Full Review

    Soule continues to introduce the players of his story. I know some people are worried about how the story is developing but I feel that he is almost done placing all his characters. These new characters are fun and interesting which will keep you reading along with the fantastic art of Stegman and Gracia. The dialogue between Medusa and Thor alone is enough to raise your interest into the Inhumans. If you are looking for that creator own feeling with a Marvel twist then don't miss out on Inhuman!

    Though technically still in its first arc, the latest issue of Inhuman feels almost like a different book. Obviously the artistic switch from Joe Madureira to Ryan Stegman plays a large role, but even Charles Soule seems to have shifted gears, focusing on entirely new events and characters.

    Overall, Inhuman #4 tries to help regain the momentum of the event. Whether or not it does is still up in the air, yet, as of #4, it is on its way back to the top. Soule delivers a solid job on writing but could use work on the pacing. Stegman is a great follow up and will help the title regain its strength. Inhumans are the next big thing for Marvel and they arent going away. Inhuman #4 is a good starting point for any reader interested in them. It reestablishes the narrative and doesnt hamper itself in the process. There are mystery components and revelations that make the book interesting and worth a pick up. Read Full Review

    I had the privilege to see some of these pages in a sneak preview at C2E2 2014, which fosters the impression that it's safe to assume Stegman has been able to gain a little more lead time in production than "Inhuman" seemed to have with Madureira on art. The story is well-crafted, well-drawn and smartly colored. The real test will come to fruition in the next few months as we wait to see how many issues come out before 2015. With Stegman onboard and Reader jumping into the cast with both feet, "Inhuman" #4 reads more like a new volume of the title and feels like it should be a new #1. Yes, the plotline and subplots carry into this issue from the first three issues, but Soule and crew provide readers with a nice place to join in. Read Full Review

    Still, as a relative newcomer to this title, the political intrique is just dense enough to keep me interested. If Soule can lock in his pacing issues and if Stegman can open up his art for all scene, Inhuman could shift into a strong title for Marvel. Read Full Review

    There's a lot going on in INHUMAN. We're seeing the Inhumans build a stronger presence for themselves as New Attilan is being developed. Charles Soule is balancing bringing in new characters along with some familiar Inhumans we would expect to see. The pacing between scenes in this issue feels a little frantic as it jumps back and forth in the middle of the action. Ryan Stegman makes his debut on the series and, along with Marte Gracia, it all looks really good. I'm still not 100% sold on delving further into the world of Inhumans but I am definitely intrigued with what is going on. Read Full Review

    Inhuman is a book with a lot of potential, if nothing else for the off-kilter powers and unforgettable visuals these characters possess. A queen with living hair? A super-strong behemoth with hooves? Even characters like Lineage and the Reader, while their powers are vast and ill-defined, have a cool visual style. However, even with Ryan Stegman on board, there needs to be more than just the art to hold us over. Soule needs to give us a reason to root for these characters, a reason to empathize with them, if we're going to join Medusa's army. This may be the way things are done in New Attilan, but now that the Inhumans are in the spotlight with their own series, they're going to need to launch a charm offensive with readers fast.

    This issue contains some interesting moments, but does very little outside of the ordinary. It capably moves through plot points and positions characters, but effects little emotion or drama. The storytellers are certainly competent, but theres nothing here that sets the comic apart from any of the other ensemble superhero books being published today. Inhuman #4 wont offend any readers, but its not likely to excite many either. Read Full Review
