Fantastic Four #1

Anyone else pick this up and read it? Iím sick of getting burned by glowing reviews of poor or mediocre stories. Iím also sick of relaunching decades-old character series with new #1 issues, but after a 3 year hiatus Iím happy the FF are back.

I love FF. I'm so glad that they are back, but no, i haven't got the 1st issue 'cause i don't collect floppies anymore. I don't even collect TPBs... just Omnibuses so i can't wait for the FF Omnibuses in the future. I will be there when they collected the run as omnibus.

I read #1 and it was sorta a let down imo. Never spending 6 bucks on a #1 again... Which seems like Marvel cranks out new #1 with 300 variants every week. The Story didn't really do anything for me. The art is awful especially towards the end. I'm most likely going to drop this. I also seen that Dan Slott is the writer and I absolutely hated the majority of his Spider-Man books for like the last 10 years... The new Spider-Man book by Nick Spencer is surprisingly good though imo.

It was pretty-good leaning on the over-sentimental at times. I enjoyed the guest stars. A lot of what Benn & Johnny discussed in the recent Marvel-Two-In-One was rehashed here in a nutshell version, & very little of that title was even referenced, & when it was it was only in a mere sentence or two (like it barely happened). It's the FF so I'll stick with it. Hopefully it'll get even better. The timing in the last page was a tad too coincidental pertaining to the issue-build-up, but what the hell. At least things seem to be getting back to normal.

So...does this mean Johnny has to give back all the money and patents he inherited in Uncanny Avengers? =D

I picked it up after never ready the FF on a regular basis. I just missed them in the Marvel Universe and wanted to see what they have in store for them . I have enjoyed the Marvel 2 In One with Ben and Johnny and have looked forward to it. I have yet to read it and will save my opinion for awhile. I'm just glad they are back.

Okay, after holding off a couple of weeks out of trepidation, I just read the new FF #1. I’m not sure Sara Pichelli is the right artist to capture the action and wonder of the FF but she feels right for getting the heart part. Slott did good work on The Thing miniseries (Idol O’ Millions) years back so, despite how sick I was of him on Spidey after Superior Spider-Man, I had some hope. And, this issue was okay, maybe even good. Not sure it’s great but I’m actually looking forward to the next issue which I haven’t felt from any recent title except Jason Aaron’s Thor. Hmmmm.
