Fantastic Four #32

Review: Fantastic Four #29

Fantastic Four #29

The Fantastic Four find themselves in the middle of all of the King In Black’s business in Fantastic Four #29. Sue is spying on Johnny and his soulmate, Sky.

Generally, I think crossover issues kinda stink. Characters are thrust into some no-nonsense event, jobbing for someone else’s villain, and nothing that matters ever really happens. Here, as Reed and company are making sure everything is good with Valeria and the gang at the Forever Gate, the black symbiotic dragons of Knull, God of symbiotes, just start raining from the sky.

I’ll give Dan Slott a bit of credit in that I’m surprised at how much he can pull off with such a huge cast of characters in tow. He does make it work and give everyone their space. It’s not the FF is there’s no family drama and the entire Sue-Johnny-Sky situation reeks of typical FF drama. Oddly enough, it’s more interesting to me than when it just became a no-nonsense fight against symbiotic dragons that no one can harm or hurt.

The art was pretty good from Ze Carlos but I’m ready for them to return Reed to his more traditional look and away from looking like John Krasinski. We get it. We’re over it. Besides that, I do like his style, which reminds me a bit of a looser style Mike Wieringo. Also, he illustrates a killer Thing.

One thing you don’t normally see is a bunch of heroes just popping up but this issue had them all over in the backgrounds, which in a way isn’t the norm with event tie-ins. Usually, it’s a more secluded setting for whoever’s book it is and then it brings them in near the end of the main series. Sadly, I felt like the end twist in Fantastic Four #29 happened off-panel and it was a letdown. That said, if you are an event completist, you’ll not want to miss the Fantastic Four’s involvement in King In Black.
