Reading List: The Ten Essential Jack Kirby Stories
Obviously Jack Kirby is the greatest comic book artist of all time, but most will agree he's also one of the medium's greatest writers. He wrote the way he drew: Big and loud and primal, but with a surprising amount of intricacy and nuance waiting to be discovered amid the crackling explosions. We've put together a list of the ten essential stories that you should read if you want to get more familiar with the King.
Marvel's 'The Inhumans' Gets a Shiny New Logo Tease
It’s hard to say when exactly Marvel will look to drum up promotion for its ABC Inhumans, but a September IMAX premiere is fast approaching. As such, Marvel’s royal family is getting their ducks in a row, debuting a new logo teaser to bring us one step closer to a premiere date.
'Inhumans' Reveals Medusa and More in New Set Photos
Marvel and ABC’s The Inhumans has gone before cameras for the better part of a week now, and until the IMAX production comes forth with any official teases, most looks at the super-powered race have come off-set. Sneak a peek at Medusa, Crystal (and maybe Maximus?) in the latest photos!
What You Missed If You Didn't Read 'Inhumans Versus X-Men'.
This week saw the conclusion to the titanic clash between mutants and Inhumans that was Inhumans vs X-Men, and with Resurrxion just around the corner, the events of Jeff Lemire, Charles Soule, Leinil Francis Yu, Gerry Alanguilan and David Curiel's Inhumans vs X-Men #6 will have massive repercussions for both franchises going forward.

Good Thing: Who's A Good Boy? Lockjaw's A Good Boy! Yes He Is!
We know that there's an Inhumans television show coming whether we like it or not, and we know Marvel Comics is going to keep pushing the franchise in the comics whether we like it or not, but it doesn't have to all be grim acceptance of our terrigen-infused future.

100 Character Names In The Model Of Blackagar Boltagon.
Marvel recently announced that actor Anson Mount has been cast in the largely mute role of Black Bolt in the Inhumans TV show, debuting later this year on ABC. As king of the secretive superhuman race, and as the wielder of a voice that can level cities, Black Bolt is one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe, able to hold his own against tough guys like Hulk, Thor, and even Thanos.

The best thing about Black Bolt is that his real name is Blackagar Boltagon. We're such fans of the name that we thought we'd apply its basic principles to some other great comics characters to see how it sits on them.
