R.B. Silva is on the verge of becoming a Marvel powerhouse. Is there anything that this amazing artist can’t illustrate? Pairing him with master scribe Charles Soule is a combo that could work on any title Marvel puts out. This is the chocolate and peanut butter of comics and I love it.
This issue is a step back from the rush of action that has followed this title since its launch. Here we focus on the fallout of the death of Inhuman cop Auran, who was killed by Black Bolt. We watch as her former partner Frank McGee describes to Auran’s daughters how he met their mother. (Insert your own lame CBS sitcom joke)
It’s through the description of Auran’s death that we learn the main plot point of the issue. Auran’s daughters have collected various descriptions of their mother from those that knew her and the pair of siblings has created a book of brail recounting these stories. The two girls take this tome to an Inhuman known as Reader, a blind Inhuman that can bring to life anything he reads. I’ll let you fill in the blanks as to what happens next.
Final Thoughts: This creative team is poised to take over the house of ideas. Let’s see how long it takes Marvel’s editorial team to harness this great duo into a book that really matters.
