4.0 out of 5 stars A darker, but not bad, take on the first family of Marvel Nov. 1 2004
By J.D. Reichert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was skeptical of this book at first; did I really want to see my favourite cosmic adventurers strip and beaten down of all the fun and playfulness I usually relate the Fantastic Four to? After literally months of avoiding the book I finally gave it a chance. Just as I had feared it was gloomy and upsetting. But it was a fine piece of work as well.

Grant Morrison (Animal Man, We3, New X-Men) and artist Jae Lee (The Inhumans) shape a depressing, realistic view of the world that Reed and company live in. There is fighting, anger, and isolation, and almost a sense of helplessness as how to handle the world around them. Problems escalate when each member of the Four become ensnared in a type of chess match being played out by Dr. Doom, using not only the FF but Namor, Mole Man, and Alicia Masters as his pawns. With Reed seemingly too wrapped up in his own escapades to save his friends or marriage, hope for the survival of Marvel's First Family seem grim.

Should you buy this book? Tough question to answer. This is far from the first Fantastic Four book someone should read, but a veteran of the teams adventures would be wise not to ignore it. 1234 has the element hat has always driven the book, even if it is a darker one; the Fantastic Four are, and will always be, a family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointing May 20 2014
By Ben Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
One of the main reasons I am not a bigger fan of the Fantastic Four is that winning the fight always seems to come down to Reed inventing some device that just makes all the problems go away, and the rest of the team just needs to fill the time until he does.

I picked this up because I love Jae Lee's artwork and because I thought Grant Morrison was someone who didn't stick to tired storylines. Unfortunately this was not the case. It does have some great "character" moments throughout, but in the end it was Reed inventing a dohickey that was better than Dr. Doom's dohickey and that was the end.

I also don't really like when a villain as complex as Doom creates some elaborate plot just because he's still mad at the FF and wants to destroy them. I enjoy stories with him much more when he's on his insane quest for more and more power. The FF may be his oldest enemies, but they're hardly the only ones standing in the way of his larger goals, and he seems to go to a lot of trouble here just to take them out.

The art is great, however, so if that's what makes a good story for you, go ahead and give this a shot. It's the biggest reason I gave it three stars. The characters are portrayed well, but the story as a whole was lackluster.

Reed, Ben, Namor, Sue, and Johnny are all tested in this story. The art is wondrous and sets the ambiance of the tale. It is a grand story full of old quirks that are brought back into a new forum.
3.0 out of 5 stars Some Nice Moments But Overall Fairly Forgettable July 10 2014
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Grant Morrison tackled Marvel’s first family in “Fantastic Four 1234” with mixed results. Morrison might be one of the most acclaimed writers in comics today but this simply isn’t his best outing though there are some interesting character moments, especially with the Invisible Woman. One of the chief problems here is Morrison is--and this is something I never thought I would write--a bit too predictable here as the likes of Dr. Doom, Namor and Mr. Fantastic act as they generally always have. The Fantastic Four is about family and finding a balance between exploring the limits of the imagination while paying some tribute to the past. Morrison offers a Fantastic Four story that--with a few moments featuring the Invisible Woman--could have been written by several other writers. While not a bad story, it was a bit too familiar which is not what one expects from Morrison. There’s simply not anything about the plot that stands out. The art team, led by Jae Lee, generally does a fine job though there are some slips to be sure. Morrison fans might be underwhelmed but readers of the Fantastic Four should find this book to be enjoyable if not particularly memorable.
5.0 out of 5 stars Grant Morrison fever dream story with perfect and sensible execution Dec 8 2013
By Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book was fantastic. as mentioned in the headline this comic mini series was like a dark fever dream in that it wasn't particularly sad or anything but it was really solemn and subtle but definitely crazy and weird if that makes sense. the art by Jae Lee was fantastic and appropriate. The overarching idea in the series seemed to be a psychological analysis of the human faults of every fantastic four member and that might seem really heavy handed but its actually really accessible and enjoyable because i can honestly say that was not the approach i was expecting from this story but obviously from the 5 star review i thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish there were more gems of comics like this.
