Excellent Collection of Fantastic Four ComicsJuly 21 2014

The core of the “Fantastic Four” focuses on family and pushing the boundaries of the imagination. Both are on center stage in this collection of comics as Mark Waid continues his solid run as writer with Mike Wieringo doing a solid job as he leads the art team. Waid takes longtime nemesis Dr. Doom in a different direction here, playing up his sorcerous abilities and how Mr. Fantastic, a logician who embraces science, has to respond to it. Included in the mix is how Doom threatens the Richards family and how the various Fantastic Four members respond to it. The result is a solid, exciting story with memorable moments, some humor, interesting plot twists and excellent character development. The story also includes a remarkable epilogue which ties up various elements. This ranks as one of the best Fantastic Four collections out there. Highly recommended.
