xkoenig's Fantastic Four #600 - Forever, Part 1 review

Huge, awesome, worth every penny (or cent)

I managed to avoid spoilers for this issue and didn't even look for preview pages, and the wait was definitely worth it. 28 pages of Hickman & Epting and a truly awesome 48 pages of Hickman & Giandomenico combine for a science heavy, emotional, action-packed, trippy, quality journey that is well worth the money, even before the additional 3 short stories at the end. And those are NOT just filler material. With a story and comic as long as this one there is a danger that a writer will lose steam halfway through and the story will just start to feel weak. Here, Hickman has such a huge plan to rely on that this doesn't happen. Every part is solid and well thought out. I admit I still don't fully understand all of the details we see here, but it's enough to carry me and the plot forward. The guest heroes who show up really play a great part - I loved the Red Hulk-She Hulk-Thing team-up. Just brilliant. Carmine Giandomenico's art in the second story really blew me away - so much detail, and is has a really cool style that I think is very suited to the FF. The Fantastic Four is back as a comic and I can't wait to see what's next. This is definitely worth every one of my 5 stars.

    So Fantastic Four is back! (At least for a few issues) Great! This book starts off by advancing the main story for the first bit of the issue. We're talking about the story that has been going on since Hickman started his F4 run and which continued through the FF. We get some pretty good movement there although it's MOSTLY just stalling for either FF #12 or F4 #601. We then get the bulk of the issue which is the HUGE REVEAL. And you can probably guess what that is. Then we get 3 more mini storie...

    Fantastic Four # 600 0

    Fantastic Four # 600A super-sized double epic issue! How we got to issue # 600 really doesn’t make any sense. Sometimes I feel like rallying against Marvel telling them to shove there renumbering up there ass. Cause we have Fantastic Four and then Marvel will continue the FF (Future Foundation) series. Sooooo? huh? I don’t get it. But yeah both series will be continuing since the last known Fantastic Four issue was # 588 we have now # 600. I just wanted to clear the air there. Reading this issue...
