I was sceptical about James doing another dark storyline going down "The End of the Fantastic Four" route again but his comments on the podcast have reassured me that he intends to keep the core of this book intact. That it'll still be a fun, lighter in tone book about a family at the end of the day. Fraction didn't recognise this in his run at all and wrote a poor FF run as a result. Robinson seems to be writing the FF well actually, there's not any visible stifling dialogue or expositionary lines that I can see in the preview. Maybe this'll be a bright new future for my favourite Marvel family...
I'm cautiously optimistic. I realize I've enjoyed Robinson's work on one book - Starman. I've read his JSA work, but not much else. I followed him to Justice League, but that was kind of disappointing. Because I was expecting more of what he was doing in Starman and The Golden Age. I think Fantastic Four might be the right fit...still, I'm cautiously optimistic.
Read issue one today and have all the other issues preordered. I really enjoyed it. Listened to the podcast where you interviewed James. Good stuff. Though it would be fun if Tony could get some other Comics Alliance folks to pitch in with the voice acting once in awhile.
