August 27, 2012 - I hate when a cover
Both are mediocre
But FF has been improving.
Reveals the big reveal from the end of the book
Yes, we KNOW that the bandaged dude throughout the comic is Magnus. It doesn't work as dramatic irony if there is NO drama!
The Eternal Warrior is showing up ALL over the comics. Bloodshot, here... Of course these are THOUSANDS of years apart.
This one seems crazy. Killing Rokkie now, too? YIKES!
Just something about enemy's face - amongst many of the other drawings, too. It just seems FAR too cartoony to be believed. It isn't consistent, and again, Valiant is killing off a few characters - unpopular, certainly, but just for spite.
On another note, I do like how the universe is continual with Rai now.
Floats those little heads
It has something here. Fantastic Four has come a LONG way from where it was - even a few months ago. Better pantheon of characters, and more realistic interactions. REAL goals. Consequences. And some coherence.
But it still has a ways to go. Two issues to 48? Really?
I like the Inhumans - and I am starting to get the Star Wars feel of good writing paired with poor dialogue.
I also like how Black Bolt is laid down - and the mystery of his speech isn't solved. But some of the character responses in thoughts 'I don't know WHY he hasn't spoken yet...' are a bit too much. Wrap it up next month.
