Marvel Animation continues their tradition of adapting the best comic storylines for their motion comic line. They’ve now announced that an adaption of Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee’s Inhumans will be released on April 23. You can read the press release below.
Developed by the acclaimed Eisner Award-winning team of Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee, the exciting adventures of King Black Bolt and his royal family are brought to life when MARVEL KNIGHTS ANIMATION’S INHUMANS DVD debuts for the first time on home entertainment shelves nationwide on April 23, 2013 from Shout! Factory. A must have for loyal fans, comic book enthusiasts and collectors, this stunning Marvel Knights Animation presentation is packed with insightful bonus content and a graphic rich cover, and features a unique comic book style plastic sleeve that bridges the comic book to DVD concept. MARVEL KNIGHTS ANIMATION: INHUMANS DVD is priced to own at $14.97.
The plot is described as: The Inhumans have always been one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities. A race of genetic outsiders, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigen Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers — some extraordinary, some monstrous.
But now the kingdom of Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt, repel the foreign invaders who blast at their outer defense, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt’s insane brother, Maximus the Mad?
