Inhumans graphic novel - Al Williamson art


Inhumans graphic novel, 1988 - Al Williamson teamed up with Brett Blevins on several occasions during his later efforts for Marvel, primarily as inker. While results have been mixed, this lengthy graphic novel is not one of their stronger collaborations. The pencils are erratically drawn, particularly in the characters' faces, and although Williamson tries his best to add polish and definition he can do only so much. His sophisticated inking style unfortunately runs counter to Blevin's loose spontaneity. Pages 36, 41 and 42 have the most successful results, probably due to the darker aspects of the story. The ghastly creature filling the splash page (42) is the book's high point.
