(I say rare because both Marvel and DC don't go out of their way to sign those "exclusive" contrasts anymore like they were prone to in years past)

I wonder  if that's in part or related to our conversation on writer's not being able to make a big enough splash; why sign a guy who may not end up being a big thing?

I read Inhumanity #1 and I think I'm hooked.  Might have to pick this up for awhile.

Could very well be the case, but I think, if I remember correctly (which truthfully is very doubtful  Grin) both companies did a pretty decent job only signing only the top tier artists and writers. I think the reason they stopped doing it was it became too ineffective when it came to cost vs impact in sales. They were giving these contracts, complete with health insurance and all the bells and whistles, and after a few years of seeing that the books didn't sell "that much more" to counter the cost, both companies decided to drop that aspect of contracts.

I am not sure, of course  Wink, but I believe they are starting to bring the exclusive contracts back, but this time in lieu of including health coverage and all the other bells and whistles, they are just paying out a higher rate with the promise from the creator to stay exclusive for a year or two or whatever.

However, if a book they are on still doesn't sell well enough ... and give them the time to work those sub-plots, Marvel or DC can just pull them and put them on another title that needs a boost or one they plan on starting at issue #1.

Yeah, twas a good read. The ending pissed me off, not because of story or writing, but pure "fan" madness if you know what I mean.

And of course, just so you are aware, Marvel has since changed that one-shot that came out the next month in Previews, Inhumanity: Medusa, into INHUMANITY #2.
I don't think they changed anything within, so I don't think you will need it before the start of the new Inhumans title, but wanted you to know in-case you want to get as much of that "complete" thing going for later
