Doctor Doom attempts to undo the Fantastic Four’s tragic mistake in the milestone 700th issue!

In May, Ryan North and Iban Coello will celebrate 700 awe-inspiring issues of Fantastic Four with a giant-sized throwdown against the team’s legendary archnemesis: DOCTOR DOOM!

Making his first appearance in North and Coello’s run, Doom will attempt to use his unmatched expertise to fix the fatal misstep that kicked off the Fantastic Four’s new era. Still haunting the team and causing a dramatic rift between Marvel’s first family, readers are only just starting to put the pieces of the mystery together. After it’s fully revealed later this month in Fantastic Four #4, the team will be reunited at last just in time for Doom to rock their world once more! The iconic villain will embark on an epic journey across space and time to reverse the damage that his most bitter foes have unleashed on the Marvel Universe. Will he be able to succeed where Reed Richards failed? Or will his meddling make matters far, far worse?

The over-sized spectacular will also see the Fantastic Four reach their new base of operations – not knowing that their greatest threat has made it there first! As their knowledge of LANGUAGE ITSELF begins to melt from their minds, the Four are in disarray as their existence hangs in the balance… and the greatest villain of all time finally seals their DOOM.

Since launching last year, North and Coello have kept readers on the edge of their seats with world-class sci-fi storytelling that only the Fantastic Four can deliver! Don’t dare miss a single issue as the true depths of the Reed, Sue, Johnny, and Ben’s current predicament have only begun to unravel! Check out Alex Ross’ latest breathtaking cover below and pick up Fantastic Four #7, the colossal 700th issue, when it hits stands on May 17!

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW…
While searching the Xenomorph-infested Tobler-9 for an alien sample that can save humanity, “Steel Team,” the mythical Synthetic Special Operations team, has made a shocking discovery: a colony of humans who have managed to survive there for decades. With only their mutual mistrust in common, the humans and synths strike an uneasy bargain: the alien sample in exchange for Steel Team’s help in clearing a subterranean Xenomorph nest. But while the humans have had to sacrifice some of their humanity to survive, Steel Team learns that the ICARUS alien strain has taken on some disturbingly HUMAN tendencies…

Review: Fantastic Four #1

Fantastic Four #1

It’s a new volume of Marvel’s first family with Fantastic Four #1. While I’ve read Fantastic Four off and on over the decades, I can’t say it’s a series that regularly hooked me. There’s few runs I’ve read that really jumped out to me and I often stick around for an arc here and there. So, with a new debut, new creative team, and new direction, I thought I’d give it a shot and see what’s going on. And, while the first issue is entertaining, I can’t say it hooked me.

Fantastic Four #1 has Ryan North taking over for writing duty. And while at times you might think of the Fantastic Four as grand in a galactic multiversal way, this start is very focused and kind of subdued. The Thing and Alicia are on a road trip and that has taken them to a small town in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, something odd is going on. The town should be a ghost town. It’s stuck in the past. And… it resets every day. It’s up to these two to solve the mystery and just maybe fix the problem.

While we think of the Fantastic Four as this big family, it’s interesting North keeps the start small and focused on just two individuals. There’s also not some grand galactic mystery to solve, or really even a villain. Instead, the issue feels more Scooby Doo than anything else. The duo must solve a mystery. It’s quite simple and North’s delivery is fun.

North keeps the story focused in a few ways. There’s the relationship between the Thing (Ben) and Alicia. That ties in nicely with what they eventually discover. North also keeps things going with a lot of humor. Even the tense moments are delivered with a bit of a smile. The deliver is lighthearted and fun, the type of read that puts a smile on your face.

Iban Coello‘s art is solid. With Jesus Aburtov on color and Joe Caramagna on lettering the visuals pack a lot in. There’s great work in sending the duo to a town frozen in time but what really stands out is some of the panel work. There’s pages with 15 panels on it. And it works, it works really well. The full page is used and not only does the visuals deliver the jokes and body language but the lettering doesn’t overwhelm the rather packed in panels.

As a one-shot, Fantastic Four #1 works really well. As a break between arcs, an annual, or even a one-shot special, it’d be a fun and entertaining read. But, as a debut issue that’s supposed to hook us, it doesn’t quite get there. The story and art is quite good, but there’s a lack of excitement and barely a tease of what’s to come to try to get readers to come back. As the start of a new volume, it’s a bit of a headscratcher.
