FF #1 - Review 0

The GoodTruth be told, I had low expectations for this comic. After seeing the preview, I wasn't sure if I should pick up this first number, but, thankfully, I gave it shot. And, boy, I wasn't disappointed.This issue is extremely fun and funny at the same time. All of the kids of the Future Foundation (FF) gave a speech about the "school" and its "students". The dialogues are very well planned, and I thought the point of their speeches was to introduce the readers to the comic. It turns out, it ...

The Understudies 0

Let me start by saying I liked this. I'm saying that because when this was announced, I was very against this book. I thought the concept sounded dumb, the team looked lame, and it was going to be a waste.I read Fantastic Four, and did for most of Hickman's run. I never really bought FF outside of three issues. I was able to follow Fantastic Four just fine. I like Fraction as well. His run on Iron Man is probably the best in my opinion. I love what he is doing on Hawkeye. I liked Defenders for w...

FF #1 Review 0

Marvel has tried really hard in the past decade to get new readers on board with their material. They started the Ultimate comics line for that sole purpose and they didn't stop there. They did the Point One Initiative (which technically is still going) and now we're at Marvel NOW!, a line-wide relaunch of most of the major titles. Some of these relaunches have been very effective, others not so much. What makes the successful ones good and the bad ones tank? Well, I know the answer to one of th...

FF #1 0

It is a fantastic four minutes to find replacements heroes to take the place of the FF as they go off on a very important vacation!The GoodMatt Fraction's ability to write unique and intriguing stories has put him on top of Marvel's best writers. If this issue is any indication, he's at the top of his game with a hilariously fun story about an important four minute vacation that FF must take. The dialogue highlights Fractions ability to both create realism and out of this world humor. However, t...

The Superior Companion 0

Just like it's counterpart, this first issue of FF is pretty much all setup. It's funny though, because even though this issue is MORE setup and LESS action than Fantastic Four #1, I think I enjoyed this issue MORE.Mike Allred's artwork is a very interesting counterpart of Mark Bagley's. Bagley has a lot of nice details, rich layers of coloring and ink while Allred's artwork is a lot more simplistic and free. I'm not going to say either one is better, they each serve their purposes. Bagley as a ...

Only four minutes 0

Some people don't like Fraction, I've never understood why, his books are usually quite fun (Hawkeye, anyone?), and this book looks to be no exception.Firstly, I really loved how this issue was set up. Seeing the kids talking about the Future Foundation in between scenes of the FF finding their replacements is hilarious. I get the feeling that Fraction is going to put a lot of emphasis on the children of the Future Foundation, which I'm very excited about.I'm also really looking forward to how S...

Surprise! 0

I have to once more hand it to Mr. Fraction, this book completely surprised me in how good it is. The story is pretty much a continuation of what occurred in Fantastic Four #1. We see more of the team prepping their respective replacements for the four minutes they will be off-planet. The story is charming in that it sticks to character driven story as we see the family and the story is simply all about the people in the books. I love this element, a focus not on fighting and horrible events but...

Time Enough At Last 0

FF #1 snaps, crackles, and pops. If I were to condense what this issue is about in to one word, it would be time. The Fantastic Four are heading out to help find a cure in the space-time continuum for Reed's ailments. In the mean time it'll feel like a year for our new FF.First things first. I really dig Mike Allred's art. Thanks to G-Man's praise, I was enjoying I Zombie and tuned in for any work the master of comic book pop churns out, the complimenting color work by his wife Laura, also excel...

"Parts of a Whole" lot of fun! 0

The art is fantastic (fitting) and the story sets up a wonderful run for these characters. Seeing the Future Foundation again is cool, and the series is very lighthearted as a whole. I definitely recommend reading this series if you want something different. ...
