BONUS REVIEW by Kevin P Healy


A missed opportunity. Dan Slott offers an occasionally engaging story (w/out explanation yet) with much of what you'd want from the (near) return of the Fantastic Four. Unfortunately, Sara Pichelli is not up to the task of providing art worth returning for. She used to be one of Marvel's best artists, and I'm sure everyone was hoping for this to be a return to 'FOUR'm, but the sparse backgrounds, loose figures, and static layouts make this book look more like a director's cut of roughs than a finished comic. She's lost more than a step somewhere, like many of the greats do as they go to visual shorthand in the their penciling. Think of later Frank Miller and JRJR work for some recent examples. Sad to see her there this early in her career.

From a story perspective, there are a couple of classic FF villains who have recently returned to villainy after a radical change from their villainous ways. Wouldn't it have been GENUINELY thrilling to have the FF reunited and interacting with these characters in a new, challenging way?

It would have. Long story long, this book is not nearly as good as Marvel Two-In-One at being a Fantastic Four comic. That doesn't mean I'm not along for the ride, or excited at the possibility that there is a larger plan in place.


I give it 5 out of 10 Grahams
