Using the Inhumans as a mirror, Jenkins and Lee project the best and worst that humanity has to offer. Like humans, the Inhumans try to mask a prejudiced and divided society beneath a veil of equality and tolerance. They are capable of great disdain, and at times it seems as if their support and love are conditions, yet they are also capable of great sympathy and trust. Despite having tremendous power, the Inhumans still fight at the dinner table, call each other names, and play jokes on each other just like any family would, and at the end of the day, they are indeed a family. Even though they may be Inhumans, Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee prove that, for better or for worse, they’re people too.
Children’s stories are darker than we realize. A lot darker. Fiction Squad takes this notion and runs with it straight into arms of crime. Written by Paul Jenkins, Fiction Squad is considered to be a sequel of sorts to Fairy Quest. Both comics take place in the larger world of Fablewood, a land where stories take on a life of their own. Jenkins’ third successful Kickstarter project, Fiction Squad holds a magnifying glass up to some classic tales in order to reveal the gritty reality lurking beneath the surface of “Once upon a time.”
