We’ve moved passed the big comic event from the last issue and are now onto the everyday adventures of the Fantastic Four.


I’m going to be honest, I did not enjoy this issue as much as the last one.  This issue focused a lot on the kids, which I’ve thought was fun in the past.  They’re teenagers now.  It can be kind of fun to see what people are going to do with that, but it didn’t work for me in this issue.

I was always a weird child, and didn’t understand teen angst when I was an actual teenager.  I especially don’t understand it now that there is so much time between me and my teen years.  This issue focuses a lot on Franklin and Valeria dealing with teenager stuff – with the added twist of superhero shenanigans.  The superhero stuff made this more interesting than it would have been otherwise and there were some jokes that I thought were funny.

Now, let’s talk about the art.  I don’t hate it but it doesn’t seem very consistent.  There seem to be a lot of artists working on this book, so sometimes the art style will look different between panels.  That bothered me more in this issue than it has before – probably because I wasn’t as engaged with the story.  On the bright side, I really liked the colors.  I love nice, saturated colors and this issue delivers on those.

This issue was alright. It’s not bad, but nothing that really grabs at the reader. It’s decent filler and hopefully the next issue will be more interesting.
