Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest TPB

Fantastic Four #554–561 by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch A confession: I think I bought this book because it was such a bargain on Amazon. I got it for ~£6.50 – for eight issues, that's a great bargain, and I couldn't resist. I hadn't really read reviews for the individual…

Dark Reign: Fantastic Four TPB

Dark Reign: Fantastic Four #1–5 by Jonathan Hickman and Sean Chen This trade was another bargain I picked up at the Fantastic Realm sale, and another great purchase. I picked up Hickman's first issues of Fantastic Four around the same time I bought this, and it was good timing: this…

Fantastic Four: True Story TPB

Fantastic Four: True Story #1–4 by Paul Cornell and Horacio Domingues I really enjoyed Paul Cornell's Captain Britain and MI:13 very much, and was sad to see it prematurely cancelled.

However, creators don't always get this mix right, resulting in some less…

Comic Book Review – Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four: Silver Rage

Collecting issues 1–4 by Jeff Parker and Mike Wieringo I bought this collection because it was the last work by the sorely missed Mike ‘Ringo’ Wieringo, an artist whose work I really enjoyed. He was taken from us too soon, and it’s a shame to think of all the work…

Comic Review – Fantastic Four: The End

Fantastic Four: The End by Alan Davis (inks by Mark Farmer) The future: long after the Mutant War (don’t know what it is but it sounds cool). A deranged Dr Doom attacks the Fantastic Four; Franklin and Valeria Richards join in to help but die with Doom due to an…

Film review: Fantastic Four

Confession: I haven't read any of the Stan Lee and Jack Kirby Fantastic Four comics. Sorry. They were made before I was born and the only way to see them is expensively in colour or cheaply in black & white, and I don't 'get' Kirby's art. This is probably heresy…
