Fraction And Madureira’s INHUMAN #1 Has Been Postponed
After Infinity wraps up this week, Marvel had planned an Inhumans event to spin out of the repercussions of Black Bolt‘s decision to fight Thanos and unleash the Terrigen Mists on the world. Matt Fraction would be tackling both Inhumanity and the larger Inhuman comics. It was supposed to be released in January, but now you’re going to have to wait a little longer to see the new Inhumans in action.
Bleeding Cool reports that Fraction and Joe Madureira‘s Inhuman #1, which see new Inhumans popping up all over the world in a Game of Thrones style story, has hit a bit of a snag. Inhumanity is still on schedule as far as we know, and the other books that will tie-in with Inhuman are still a go, but the main title has bee postponed. Says Bleeding Cool:
[T]he main book, Inhuman #1, has been postponed by Marvel. Labelled “cancelled” on Diamond Comic Distributors schedule, it will instead be published again at a later date, and retailers will most likely be asked to order the book again.
Joe Madureira is notoriously an artist who takes his time on the book, but I have been told by Marvel representatives that there are a number of reasons for this decision. But for it to be postponed rather than simply delayed may indicate something rather serious.
There have been rumors that this series will help set the table for for a Marvel Studios Inhuman film, but that shouldn’t really have any bearing on the delay thought the site liked to mention that movie could be happening. Madureira is known for doing great work that takes a bit of time. If that was the reason it is odd that Marvel would label it ‘cancelled‘ so they could resolicit it at a later date. When Bleeding Cool puts a little blood in the water, Marvel usually follows up with an official announcement through another site. It will be interesting to see what the reasoning for the postponement is. What do you think about Inhumans being put on hold?
