Pick of the Week: “Karnak” #2 by Warren Ellis, Gerardo Zaffino, and Antonio Fusoon March 21, 2016 at 5:44 pm
I don’t really appreciate how Marvel is trying to cram the Inhumans down our throats in their comics line and in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” I don’t like the look of the new Inhumans, nor their stories or sudden importance in the Marvel Universe. I am, however, a fan of the old school Inhumans co-created by Jack Kirby, and of the seminal “Inhumans” Marvel Knights story by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee. And currently I’m really digging Warren Ellis’s “Karnak” book, which takes place away from all of the highfalutin NuInhuman drama. I love how Ellis can seemingly effortlessly take old school characters and make them great again, like he also did recently with Moon Knight. In the end, I can tolerate all of the NuInhuman stuff as long as we still get smaller, more intimate books like “Karnak”.
