    If Uncanny Inhumans is the flagship title to lead the charge of the wave of books concerning our Inhuman friends, then with the help of Charles Soule, Steve McNiven, and the rest of the art team, it'll be a welcome change of pace for the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    It's a fair start, but the series needs to work a bit harder to earn our love. Read Full Review

    The Inhumans are making their presence known in the Marvel Universe. Charles Soule is bringing them to the center stage with Steve McNiven. For characters that have long had a deep history in the Marvel Universe, it's fascinating to see them brought front and center. It goes to show you that Marvel has a bunch of great existing characters along with some great new ones created by Soule. I've said many times before that I wasn't the biggest Inhumans fan. Charles Soule is easily changing that. Having McNiven's art here is big plus as well. Now is definitely the time to jump on board to see the Inhumans' story play out in the Marvel Universe.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book. When I first started reading comics, the only glimpses of the Inhumans I remember seeing were when they guest starred in issues of The Fantastic Four. But now that Marvel has invested in this group of characters, it's easy to see why they belong front and center along with the Avengers and other main stream characters. They have a long history, but now with the terrigen mists and NuHumans appearing every day, a new history is being written for the Inhumans, and I will definitely be following along to see where it goes.

    Comicosity - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Oct 22, 2015

    This series debut might be a difficult jumping-on point for new readers. We meet a flurry of characters in rapid succession: Reader, Iso, Flint, Inferno. Despite the very full cast list, Soule pulls us in by making Medusa a sympathetic leader. McNiven, Leisten, and Gho's gorgeous illustrations impress us on every page. I'm excited to see where Soule takes this cast. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 21, 2015

    As a debut, The Uncanny Inhumans #1 does well in both setting the stage and labeling the players, Soule's script only slightly stunted by the dragging exposition. Long term readers will find the issue a bit more on the recap side, but with a promising new narrative and some great art from Steve McNiven, the Inhumans might not be so far from superstardom after all.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Oct 21, 2015

    Yet with Black Bolt and Medusa in the same house once more - if not the same bed - there's a ton of potential for Uncanny Inhumans to succeed. While this property has undeniably gotten off to a shaky start, now that there's a shared past of betrayal and secrets, Soule and McNiven have a ton of drama to mine, and throwing in a villain as overpowered as Kang the Conqueror gives this book a high concept appeal that's difficult to ignore. A house separated cannot stand, but a house divided might be the best thing to happen to Marvel's next potential franchise. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Tom Bacon Oct 21, 2015

    All in all, UNCANNY INHUMANS #1 is a strange beast. Parts of it suffer because of the All-New All-Different Marvel time-jump, while other parts are strengthened. Unfortunately, because of that same time-jump, it all feels like a jigsaw puzzle, with the pieces currently in strange places. Given time, a revisit to the book may feel less odd. But as for first impressions, they're a mixed bag. Read Full Review

    Regardless of the somewhat "pilot-ey" nature of this first issue, I am still very intrigued by the events to come with the Inhumans. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 22, 2015

    As much as Marvel is banking on the Inhumans, they really should do a better job of shepherding the property. Despite being a fun, world-building examination, "Uncanny Inhumans" #1 gets tripped up by quality control. For instance, "Uncanny Inhumans" #1 cites Steve McNiven as inker. What's more, a pair of the pages in the backup seem out of order, which ruptures the story flow. This could be attributed to a storytelling choice, but it comes across as an error and -- combined with the fumbled credits -- just makes "Uncanny Inhumans" #1 look unnecessarily rushed when it should have been completely polished and shiny.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 24, 2015

    This is by no means a bad book, its actually pretty enjoyable, but this is just a rehash of everything the mutants have already gone through. You could honestly switch Black Bolt and Cyclops and it wouldnt matter. Marvel is trying to push these characters on us, but they dont have an original story yet. The art was very good and gave this book a good vibe. In order to be successful, Uncanny Inhumans need to distance themselves from the mutants. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Oct 24, 2015

    Charles Soule and Steve McNiven's Uncanny Inhumans #1 is frustrating. As a flagship title for Marvel in their process of turning Inhumans into the new X-Men, Uncanny Inhumans should be a bit more straightforward. Read Full Review
