Story: Stan Lee
Art: Jack Kirby
Inking: Joe Sinnott
Lettering: Art Simek
Finally we get to see what the Great Sanctuary of the Inhumans is like! It’s… a lot like every other supervillain lair/futuristic kingdom that you get in these 60’s Marvel comics. How fucked up is my life that this is a humdrum thing I’m complaining about?
Johnny and Ben go off to subdue Dragon Man again while Reed and Sue stay in and save Triton’s life with a fire hose and Sue’s force field. Before the Seeker leaves again, Mr. Fantastic manages to sneak a tracking device on their ship, and the Fantastic Four follow the Inhumans back to their hidden sanctuary. Inside, we learn that Black Bolt’s brother Maximus has been the king while the group was away, and also that he’s evil and has an evil ray gun of some sort that’s going to kill all humans, leaving the Inhumans in charge of the whole dang place. The Fantastic Four come to visit and Maximus shoots off his big gun. I guess all the humans are dead now, oh well.
I’m not a big fan of the Inhumans stuff, however it did say that the next issue wraps it up for now and also has the coming of Galactus! WOOO GALACTUS!! Also “of note”, I guess, Susan Richards gets a new hairstyle in this issue. I don’t have much to talk about here, okay?
