FF #15 - Operation: Latveria Review


The end is near. The FF prepare their massive plan of attack against Doom. Will it be enough?

The Good

Let's all take a moment and take in the splendor of this series.

As usual, this issue offers a great mix in tone. While there is so much humor and light-heartedness in each issue, the team has to prepare their attack against Doctor Doom. Doom may have been associated with the previous incarnation but he is not wearing the kid gloves. Lee Allred captures everyone's voice perfectly.

There is so much going on here and it's all glorious. We don't usually see attacks in this fashion. With the kids in the Future Foundation involved, you'll have a smile on your face even though we have angry Doom preparing to unleash his wrath.

Of course Mike Allred's art is in top form, as usual. Take note of the middle pages as we see more of the fight going on. Allred gets to draw so many different characters (sort of) and you'll find yourself in denial, trying to block out the thought that there's only one more issue of this series after this.

The Bad

No complaints. This comic is like nothing else. It will be missed after the next issue.

The Verdict

Doctor Doom is such a wonderful villain. FF continues to be a highly entertaining and humorous book while being filled with the vile nature of Doom preparing to do his worst. Lee Allred sets everything up and Mike and Laura Allred knock it out of the park. This is a comic I want to read over and over. The end is near and it looks like the series is going to end with a bang.

I am so sad that this series is ending. I picked it up on a whim and I have loved every issue. I will pick this issue up after finals and slowly turn each page. This series definitely has re-read-ability all over the place and I can't wait to go through it again once it is all finished.

@renchamp: at least we'll have Mike and Laura on SILVER SURFER. I'm curious what Lee will do.

@g_man: I'll admit to being a late-bloomer to the Allreds but I am absolutely in love and will follow them to Silver Surfer despite not being a big Marvel cosmic guy.

I've read some Lee stories outside comics and he has a pretty interesting voice. Books like this one suit him well and I hope he finds something else to do.

No. It can't already be the second-to-last issue. This can't be happening. Why does eveything I love die??

Its heart breaking this book has to end. I actually feel I might have a little bit of resentment towards Robinson's run because this book will no longer be around. I do not know if he just did not want to write a second book or whatever.

Well I just Silver Surfer has the fun tone that this book did but I doubt it can replace FF for my favorite comic series in recent memory.

It's heartbreaking that this amazing run has to end so soon. It's been one of the top highlights of my Marvel Now reading. In one fell swoop the Allreds have made me fall in love with this art style even though I've not followed much of their previous work. I'm so excited for what they do in Silver Surfer. There's a part of me that really wants Scott to score a win against Doom but as they point out in the solicit, the ant can't.
