Will Marvel’s ‘Royals’ End With Issue #14?

We took a look at the Marvel Book Preview listings for the ResurrXion title Royals. Because it wasn’t just for X-Men you know; the Inhumans got their own books, too.

Royals #4 Review: Little Head, Big Arms, Little Story

The Inhumans exist in a weird spot. It’s easy to dislike them, since Marvel has tried their hardest to phase out the X-Men and the mutants in general in favor of the Inhuman Royal Family, Inhumans in general, and the Nuhumans. The fact that they ever attempted this was incredibly wrong-headed and foolish. However, I […]

So Why Is Black Bolt In Prison? Royals #2 Reveals All!

Whilst we’ve known since the early days of ResurrXion marketing that Black Bolt would see the titular character in an intergalactic prison, the reason for his incarceration was unclear.
