I don’t know about anyone else but this year’s Free Comic Book Day was awesome in terms of selection! This year we had Marvel Secret Wars #0, DC’s Divergence #1, Marvel’s Infinity, and The all-new, all-different” Avengers Assemble. However, in terms of previews, Marvel’s Uncanny Inhumans #1, which can be found in The all-new, all-different” Avengers Assemble really blew me away! The story begins in Mumbai where the Terrigen cloud had just come through at a movie premier where the star (Ajay Roy) was reborn a tree creature similar to that of Lord of the Ring’s “Equilibrative nucleoside transporter (ENT)” trees, while another victim of the mist simply gained powers without the external changes!
The preview to Inhuman in last Year’s The Amazing Spiderman #1, we learned that the Terrigen Mist affects pre-disposed humans differently, but if you recall the mean drunk as compared to Dante were transformed into two totally different Inhumans… The mean drunk was all about himself and blaming everyone else for his failures, where Dante worked two jobs and played in his band to support his sick mom and pregnant sister. Dante turned into a cool fireball like johnny Storm while the mean old drunk turned into a humanoid creature, which brings up character – character is everything!
On the subject of Johnny Storm, guess who’s with the hotness known as Medusa? I wonder how Black Bolt is reacting to this development? You know what? Nevermind, we do NOT want that guy to say a word! I would like to take this moment to personally thank every one of our friendly neighborhood comic book shops for making our FREE COMIC BOOK DAY experience so insanely great. For me, THANK YOU Past Present & Future Comics for my experience!
