Fantastic Four #1 (2018) Review
The Fantastic Four are back! Hahaha, you naive child, you don’t actually think they’re back together do you? So cute, just give me a second, I’m wiping the tears of laughter from my eyes. Marvel wouldn’t give you the satisfaction of reuniting one of its flagship teams in the first issue since their hiatus back in Secret Wars. Instead in Fantastic Four #1 (2018) you get an expanded version of the Marvel Two-In-One #1 featuring The Thing and Human Torch.
Fantastic Four #1 (2018) is still 98% The Thing and Human Torch, I think you can gather a spoiler free opinion on how much 2% of the book covers the other half of the team. The story is very melancholy, filled with more emotion than a pubescent teen during their years of middle school.
While Fantastic Four #1 (2018) by no means “knocked my socks off”, it at least set a strong tone for upcoming issues. Dan Slott is carving a slow burn into the story. Setting up characters, those closest to them, and revealing each one of their vulnerabilities. Sara Pichelli joins Slott with the pencils of Fantastic Four and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve always been a fan of Sara with her clean lines and impressive ability to show each characters emotions.
Stay after the end of the first Fantastic Four #1 (2018) story for two more stories, one interesting about Dr. Doom, and another that’s just goofy thanks to Dan Slott and Skottie Young featuring a character we obviously don’t get to see enough of, Impossible Man.
