June 2, 2011 - The series get going...
Mads continues Magnus
This was the book that I thought had some purpose. In this book, Magnus finds out why the robots are fighting the humans. I think the robots are right, but they don't have to instantly turn to fighting. I think they could have tried to reason with the humans. Then, if the humans didn't agree, fight. But the humans are as much to blame for this incident, maybe even more! They have been making robots do whatever they want for all these years. Then a few freewill robots show up, and they don't even let them survive. I think the lesson for this story is "Everybody dies, but not everybody lives." The robots die, but they don't really live. Some of the HUMANS don't really live. And now poor Magnus has nobody on his side. The humans, controlled robots, and freewill robots are all against him. I feel bad for him.
Mads reads FF
I really liked this book. I really wanted to find out who was out to get the Fantastic Four. I can't believe ANYBODY could hold a grudge against those four! When I opened the book and started reading, I KNEW that someone was trying to get the FF in the slammer, or even worse, killed! But I wasn't very shocked when I found out it was aliens from outer space. That sort of thing happens in kid- centered books and comics.
The REAL answer
Okay. Yesterday was a cop-out. Not today, though. Magnus takes the reigns and keeps the line rolling. This is the way to construct a story and a comic. STILL love the skrulls, and this story was an improvement over the last issue, but nowhere NEAR the completeness of this book.
