Mark your calendars because this spring, Shout! Factory is going to release Marvel Knights Animation’s “Inhumans” on DVD. Based on the Eisner Award-winning series, from the acclaimed creative team-up of writer Paul Jenkins and artist Jae Lee, “Inhumans” follows the adventures of King Black Bolt and his royal family as they try to protect Attilan from outside forces. With such eye-catching illustrations, you’re definitely going see pages leap right off the screen! Check out the trailer and some sneak peek clips to “Inhumans” exclusively here at MTV Geek!
From Shout Factory:
The Inhumans have always been one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities. A race of genetic outsiders, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigen Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers — some extraordinary, some monstrous.But now the kingdom of Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt, repel the foreign invaders who blast at their outer defense, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt’s insane brother, Maximus the Mad?
This popular series takes a classic Marvel cast of characters, and infuses it with a modern sensibility that includes international politics and an awareness of class systems. Dark and grimly compelling, The Inhumans is one story that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
