Last Night's Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Explains Why Marvel Double-Shipped Inhuman #8

So, Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was on ABC last night. And today, Marvel has sent twice the number of copies of Inhuman #8 as retailers ordered, for no extra charge.

What's the connection?

Well, recent plots in the TV show have seen the map drawn by those injected with Kree DNA, revealed as the map of a hidden city.

Last night we learned about an alien race, who came to Earth to end us all. The obelisk as a key, which can be accessed by certain special people. And we got the location of the hidden city.

In the comics, the original location of Attilan, home of the Inhumans, was an island in the North Atlantic Ocean (before moving to the moon, the Himilayas, being destroyed and New Attilan built on the Hudson. Very long story)

Anyway, that's where the map shows this hidden city is, along with other North Atlantic islands, Cuba, Jamiacia, Haiti/Dominica and more.

The Inhumans in the Marvel comics are descendants of humans experimented on by the Kree, and injected with celestial DNA.
