Marvel Tales #126 - Triton

The back-up story in this issue is a reprint of the Inhumans story from the back of THOR #150 (1968), a 5-page Kirby/Sinnott story that starts the three part adventure of Triton's first visit to the outside world. Triton's a great character when drawn by Kirby/Sinnott, very powerful. In his initial outing, he comes across a creature who turns out to be a costumed man in a film production. He allows himself to be taken prisoner by the humans in order to find out more about them.

Has anyone really pieced together just what the hell was going on with these "Inhumans" "back-ups"? Were they part of a larger book that never happened? Did Kirby pull out in a fit of pique?

I remember an "Inhumans" book being hyped constantly on the Bulletins page and the FF letters page back around '68-69... about the same time Kirby was getting fed up with Marvel.
