    The same could be said about the book in its entirety – Inhumans: Attilan Rising is not bad by any means, it's just not great. This issue pushes the story along effectively enough and places both opposing forces right in each other's faces (with one side clearly having the upper hand). In the end, Inhumans: Attilan Rising #3 will be easily summarized in the introduction to the next installment, and though it's not exactly a waste of time, it definitely isn't the most exciting time we've shared with the Inhumans.

    This is an excellent book that suffers from the nature of the "Secret Wars" event, and never quite overcomes its own weaknesses. Read Full Review

    The first one had all the charm of early 20th century gangster tales, the second one kept the charm but also threw in some compelling spy vs spy espionage. Inhumans: Attilan Rising #3 loses all the charm and just devolves into a generic all-out battle Read Full Review

    Even the Medusa's parting shot in the last page cliffhanger leaves behind a bland, generic impression. All the lackluster action has little meaning behind it, except to establish Black Bolt's bonafides as a good leader. "Inhumans: Attilan Rising" #3 is the weakest issue of the series so far, and it's a surprising step backward in Soule's efforts to raise the Inhumans' profile in the Marvel Universe.

    Attilan Rising's early issues suggested a tale of political revolution set in a difficult world but this issue lets many of these intriguing themes fall to the wayside. Following the turbulent but rewarding journey of Queen Medusa in Soule's previous Inhuman series, Attilan Rising feels comparatively hyper-aggressive in a context with far less at stake. While next issue alludes a face-to-face confrontation between Medusa and Blackagar that could focus on rhetoric over fisticuffs, Attilan Rising reminds us we've come a long way with Secret Wars but aren't out of the woods yet.
