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.

    This book was simply amazing. Not only has it gone back to the science fiction roots of FF but it is so well written, so well done I can't even think of words to describe it. Johnny is back, which if thats a spoiler to you you have to start coming of the mole men's caves more often. The book takes us to his side of the story to tell us what happened during all thats been going on. It will rock your world/worlds. This thing is a hefty 7 bucks and honestly, if they had charged more and I knew what...

    Highly Recommended!I have A LOT of Fantastic Four catching up to do, but I did not have time to do it (just yet), so I thought I would jump in with this issue 600 and take it from there. I do plan on going back and reading 500-588, probably within the coming month.That said, I really thought this issue was well suited fro long time Fantastic Four fans and new readers alike. A warning to new readers - you will want to get a foundation on the Fantastic Four, their relationship to the Marvel Univer...
