Marvel Entertainment is continuing to throw its publishing weight behind its Inhumans property ahead of the Marvel Studios movie, scheduled for release in 2019, with Wednesday's announcement of a new comic book series focusing on the concept — the sixth Inhumans series to launch as part of the All-New, All-Different Marvel publishing relaunch.

All-New Inhumans will be co-written by Charles Soule, writer of the September-launching Uncanny Inhumans, and James Asmus, with art by Stefano Caselli, and will focus on a "diplomatic mission/covert strike team" led by former Avengers and Fantastic Four supporting character Crystal.

"Our stories, at first, will be a little smaller in scope, with deeply personal consequences for the characters," Asmus told "But we’re building up a cast and a portrait of the new Inhuman world that will soon have to go toe-to-toe with Marvel’s big boys in a very high-stakes way."

The series will join Uncanny Inhumans, Ms. Marvel, Karnak, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and Uncanny Avengers as Inhumans-focused series in the Marvel publishing lineup ahead of the 2019 movie, despite the low-selling nature of the previous series promoting the concept, Inhuman, which ended in April.
