    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Mar 31, 2017

    Overall, Inhumans Prime sets up the Inhuman line with intriguing mysteries, allows the Inhumans to move from a well written (largely) but controversial time to a time when they can maybe finally be total heroes without causing the displacement of others, and presents a potentially exciting time of exploration and adventures to come. Setting up almost all the series of the line to come, and itself a great read with stunning art. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Mar 29, 2017

    Inhumans Prime #1 is a great welcome back issue to Inhumans proper – Medusa and Black Bolt together, and it's a united Inhumans taking on the future. There are a lot of good things to look forward to from this series and it is sure to attract plenty of new readers, especially with the TV show on horizon. This book crams a lot of action and story into a solid first issue, while still leaving time for some favorite characters like Reader and Karnak to have some page time. Inhumans Prime #1 is agreat read for existing Inhuman fans and new readers, this book does a solid job to re-introduce fan favorite characters while also building a future with some new ones.

    Graphic Policy - Brett Mar 29, 2017

    Inhumans Prime absolutely sets up the future and does so in a way that it doesn't feel like a series of blunt short stories leading into their new series. Instead the comic is filled with hints and teases as to what's coming and does so in a way that it too tells a complete story that can be read as a one-shot. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 30, 2017

    Writer Al Ewing covers a lot of ground here, proving right away that his voice is a great fit for the franchise. He brings a strong sense of humor to offset the general doom and gloom plaguing the team. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 3, 2017

    Inhumans Prime #1 tied up some loose threads while showing the new direction for the Inhumans going forward.  I'm not sure what long time Inhumans fans will think, but this new one got enough out of this to want more. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Aron Pohara Mar 30, 2017

    Overall, this was a decent one-shot. If this book is any indication, upcoming Inhumans stories might be interesting rides. Get hyped for the next era of Inhuman books. Read Full Review

    Inhumans: Prime #1 is a fine start to the "Inhumans-verse," even if it doesn't step too far outside of its comfort zone. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Mar 29, 2017

    Inhumans Prime #1 is a very, very soft reset for the Inhumans line. It puts some familiar pieces in slightly unfamiliar circumstances and it puts forward the idea that without the Terrigen mists, this may be the last generation of Inhumans. They’re now a race that faces imminent extinction, at least as far as having superpowers goes. That’s not unlike the X-Men’s status quo post-M-Day. It remains to be seen if a quality story can be built on this foundation, but at least Marvel has acknowledged that they need to make the Inhumans somewhat more unique. The less-is-more approach should help them refocus. As for this issue, it’s does a mediocre job of bridging the gaps because more of these plot points will be repeated in individual titles moving forward. Read Full Review
