    There are a few sticking points with the script. As mentioned, it's tough to gauge what this story has to do with Realm of Kings. Like the opening chapter of Imperial Guard, the tenuous connection is that Medusa is dispatching a team to investigate the Fault. Just how heavy a focus that team will receive in future issues is a mystery. The script also falls apart a bit in its final pages. DnA make the mistake of moving away from the character driven sequences and political scheming to toss in several new physical threats at once. The series doesn't really need the same balls-to-the-wall action War of Kings showed so readily. It has enough going for it already. As a tie-in comic this issue is sort of weird, but on its own merits I enjoyed Realm of Kings: Inhumans #1 quite a bit. Read Full Review

    That said, I am a tiny bit worried about the end of the first issue, with no less than two different groups invading. I hope the rest of "Realm of Kings: Inhumans" continues to be about political machinations rather than more huge fight scenes. There's a lot of potential to be had in this set-up, and with any luck we'll get that follow through. For now, though, it's a solid start. Read Full Review
