INHUMANS #8 (Dec 1976)
Marvel Comics

Review: The addition of a second mobile city makes this issue feel a bit like a rerun, though writer Doug Moench gets good mileage out of the cities’ clash. Moench’s foreshadowing of the “War Between the Three Galaxies” continues to tantalize, but there better be some payoff soon. George Pérez returns as artist for one issue, and his pencils hold up much better to Don Perlin’s inks. Of all the Bronze Age artists, Pérez seems least inker-dependent, as the strength of his early work comes more from strong storytelling than refined pencils.

Grade: B

Cool factor: George Pérez’s storytelling. His three-issue absence from this title just made hearts grow fonder.
