I still don't get this series.

Serious? A Joke?

Four Minutes????

Defiantly not picking it up.

Posted by guttridgeb

I really hate that art.

Posted by Cavemold

Its suppose to be parody of F4? Didnt know F4 was big enough for on-going parody. Its weird sure, but makes no sense and has terrible art. Matt can do anything he wants i suppose. I get they are trying branch out to more light hearted comics but this concept does not have enough quality behind it.

Same, it would work wonders as a flashback, dream or something else, but not the whole thing :S

Posted by raptorsrevenge

Wow, I can't wait for this! Allred's art has an incredible amount of rich personality to it. I hope this does well.

Posted by dreamfall31

All these comment make Tony very sad. Anyway im excited for this series because it seems like a super fun romp.

Posted by Mucklefluga

Can't wait for this! It's gonna be so awesome!!!

@Cavemold: No, it's not a parody. Yes, they are serious.

Posted by livlig

I'm going to pick up the #1's, and then trade-wait (in case it gets rave appreciation from the comic book community). I really like Fraction and Allred (and have nothing against Bagley), for the most part, but I'm in the process of reading both the Lee/Kirby/Ditko and Hickman Fantastic Four - and thus don't want to read a third series at the same fragging time.

Posted by wmwadeii

The cover just turns me off, the preview didn't help much. I may be able to get into it but none of the characters have ever appealed to me. On top of that the She-Thing is just horrible IMO.

Posted by The Stegman
Not in the least bit interested in this.
Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

Call me crazy, but I actually like this. It's got She-Hulk and well I couldn't care less about the other three. WHY CAN'T SHULKIE HAVE HER OWN BOOK AGAIN?!?!?!??!

Sign language or a pencil and paper.

Posted by Spideycap

Much more interested after seeing this.

Edited by Dernman

Not interested in this book. Doesn't look interesting and I'm still pissed they brought Ant-Man back on top of killing off his more interesting daughter who was my favorite Young Avenger.

Can't wait.

.............What the hell is this?

I think it's going to be fun! It's something different. Change is good. She Thing is hilarious. I just think some people are a little too snobby about their comics.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

I really hope people pick this book up. Please don't let this be canceled while crap like Arena happens.

I will never forgive you comic fandom!

Posted by pspin

Like Fraction, like She-Hulk, willing to give Ms. Thing a try, can go either way with Ant Man and Medusa. The art though... good for pop art but for this series, not too sure. Willing to give it a try though.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

Honestly, I hope you all give it a chance.

This book is promising something more optimistic in tone than most of the Marvel books. We need more books like this and the new upcoming Young Avengers book, and less "KILL KILL KILL, MURDER MURDER MURDER"

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

The art does seem off to me. Can't get past it but I may still check this out. Still, its Allred so I still have faith it should be good!

Posted by MutieLover

I can understand not liking Allred (not really, but I'm being diplomatic) but to call his art "horrible" or the equivalent makes no sense to me. He has an understanding of human anatomy, his characters are consist from panel to panel, and he can tell a story. At the least his art is unobtrusive to understanding the story.

What the hell is "pop art"? How is Allred more or less pop than Jim Lee or Art Adams?

You guys dont like She-Thing sight un-seen, but probably complain about how Wolverine is in every book...

Agreed.

I don't get why people are against this title when there are so many titles which are just "Guns and Swords and DEATH DEATH DEATH!"

God, I hope FF lasts a long time!

Posted by tomlikesfries

I don't like the art, but I'll give the first issue a shot.

Ditto.

Posted by Poncho

what? art that isnt grim dark and violent like DC's? do not want!

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I love Allred's art, and who says Pop Art is a bad thing? I love Pop Art too, Warhol, Liechtenstein, Herring, Close, etc. Allred's art to me is as good as Kirby's or Ditko's. But anyways,

It looks like a fun book, fun in the same way that his X-Statix or Madman are fun, or the Tick is fun. Fun like Spider-Man or the FF should be fun (in general, not saying either title isn't fun. I love Spider-man too). I wonder if his comic will have moments of sadness or darkness like MASH or Go On but an over all fun aspect, or if it will be more zany or silly, or straight up serious like most comics?

Scott Lang has lost his daughter, right after being brought back to life no less. And Medusa has lost her husband sort of. Wonder how dark this will go?

Posted by Smurfboy

Eh, I must be in minor but I am definitely looking forward to FF series! I am very exciting and the arts are different in a good away. It's nice to have something different!

I'm a fan of Allred, I love Madman, but I don't dig this preview at all personally. To me, this is a skip.

@Poncho said:

Nobody said anything like that, but I guess you feel this art is above criticism? It's not. And of course, everyone has different taste, it's silly to mock people for their preferences in art.

For example, some are saying this looks fun and optimistic. To me, the offputting, odd, and grotesque vibes of Allred's works since Madman are very present here. It's kind of nightmarish in a way. Ha, but again, we all have different taste and art is subjective and whatnot.

The odd and sometimes scary world of Madman works for me, but that doesn't mean I'm on board with everything the guy makes. It's like the comments are saying "This is Mike Allred, like it or you have no taste". Do people really think established creators are automatically above criticism, and will always hit? But hey, that's not a nut we'll crack today.
