Summary:

The Smithsonian has opened up a special exhibit dedicated to the origins of the Fantastic Four.  This brings up some hard to deal with memories for some of our heroes.

Thoughts:

I’m honestly trying to not get my hopes too high.  I feel like so far in this series we’ve had a lot of strong starts but mediocre finishes.  As usual I like how this is starting.  I’m not the biggest fan of going over an origin story for what feels like the millionth time, but I don’t hate how it’s being handled here.  I like the idea of having a museum exhibit that explains the origin story.  I felt like that was a nice way to handle going over information the audience is already familiar with.  It was nice and it didn’t take up a lot of time, which gave the writer time to add what they wanted to the story.

Aside from that a big selling point in this issue for me is the art.  I am a sucker for great color work and this issue delivers.  I love how bold and saturated they are.  The actual lines of the art are also great.  There’s a lot of life in it.  Everything flows really well and you get the impression that the characters are actually moving.  It’s got good energy and I hope that carries through into the next issue.

Summary
Alright, I’m going to give this issue a reasonably good rating, because I loved the art so much. It was that great to look at. Also, I’m trying to not get my hope up, but they’re finally going to have a space adventure, and that’s what I’m here for.
