Marvel Offers First Look Inside Royals #1

Over the next few weeks, things are sure to heat up for Marvel. Not only does April 5th mark the release of X-Men Gold #1, but also that of Royals #1, a title that’s set to begin a bold new era for the top tier Inhumans characters.

From what we can tell, Royals will shift matters in a more cosmic direction as Medusa, Black Bolt and some of your other favorites will take to space in an effort to unlock the secrets behind their origins. If you were to ask me, the Guardians of the Galaxy will have some healthy competition when it comes to intriguing intergalactic adventures.

As for the creative team, Al Ewing (The Ultimates, U.S.Avengers) will handle scripting duties, with Jonboy Meyers (Teen Titans, Spawn) providing the artwork. Quite frankly, I’m excited to see Meyers working on this title because his distinctive style that has a bit of a manga touch to it never ceases to be a visual feast. And having already stated this will be a cosmic affair, I can’t wait to see what his mind concocts.

Should you be on the fence when it comes to this series, do know that you can sample a snippet of it a week ahead of time (March 29) in the recently announced ResurrXion Spotlight Sampler.

Abdicating the throne in the wake of Inhumans vs. X-Men, Marvel’s newest space epic will take the Inhumans to the far reaches of space and beyond! The knowledge they seek about their true origins could change the course of Inhuman destiny, or damn it for all time. They must uncover who they are, if they are to truly unlock who they might be. Now, Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Gorgon, Flint and Swain – along with Marvel Boy as their guide – will blast off on a mission that could mean salvation for their people. But thousands of years from now, when their legend has passed into myth, they’ll say that seven set out on a journey, but only six returned…
