Review: New Fantastic Four #1

New Fantastic Four #1

Marvel has been going “retro” lately exploring concepts, characters, and teams of the past. In some cases, the stories have been just entertaining nostalgia. In others, they’ve added to the previous experience and characters. New Fantastic Four #1 kicks off the latest example of that. We return to the day when Spider-Man, Hulk, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine teamed up. Why? I honestly don’t remember, it was such a long time ago and I was an FF reader then so didn’t really care. The debut issue doesn’t really remind us why either, instead dropping the reader right into the action as the team must take on a demonic villain.

Peter David returns to the team and for the most part, the comic feels like a retro adventure. There’s something both good and bad about that. The issue would have generally felt at home during the original run as the start of a new arc but one that doesn’t feel like it’s going to deliver much. As I said, some of these types of series have added to the history and characters but so far, this debut just feels like a comic. That’s not necessarily bad and while the comic has its entertaining moments, it also isn’t enough to really excite.

Joining David is Alan Robinson on art. With color by Mike Spicer and lettering by Joe Caramagna, the comic sticks to its classic feel in look as well. Beyond the printing and coloring being modern, the art style feels like it’d fit in well with the past iterations. There’s some fun and funny moments but the comic lacks that punch that one might hope for to excite.

New Fantastic Four #1 isn’t bad but it also doesn’t excite. The best moment involves Spider-Man and the Vulture and then a later joke involving the Vulture. It sets things up nicely but doesn’t do it in a way that you have to read the next issue. It sadly feels like a forgettable spin-off miniseries or a short story arc where you just wait for the next bit thing. Nostalgia is great but we need a bit more than this.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Black Adam #1

Wednesdays (and Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Aquaman and The Flash: Voidsong #1 (DC Comics) – The two heroes team up and must save the world. It’s two personalities that definitely feel like they don’t go together so this miniseries could be entertaining just due to that.

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #4 (DC Comics) – Just a fun series overall with great art.

Beware the Eye of Odin #1 (Image Comics) – The second story dealing with the eye of Odin in recent months, we’re intrigued to see how this one plays out and how the two differ.

Black Adam #1 (DC Comics) – A new Black Label series focused on the character who’s getting the spotlight this year and beyond.

Dark Crisis: Young Justice #1 (DC Comics) – The event so far has been ok, but we want to see how it builds and where it goes.

I Hate This Place #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue had a nice X-Files weirdness about it. There’s a lot to take in and where it’s going, we have no idea.

Kaiju Score: Steal from the Gods #3 (AfterShock) – The heist mash-up series has been fun with every issue delivering action, humor, and solid style.

Killer: Affairs of State #5 (BOOM! Studios) – The series constantly entertains, makes you think, all wrapped up in a hint of cool.

Milestones in History #1 (DC Comics) – Milestone focuses on some of the Black trailblazers from across history!

New Fantastic Four #1 (Marvel) – Travel back in Marvel history to a rather different Fantastic Four.

Punisher War Journal Blitz #1 (Marvel) – Check out Frank’s missions the main series doesn’t have enough time to tell.
