Comments Off on Comic Book A Day – Day 61 – FF # 22 (2012)
While I didn’t start reading FF with issue #1, I really wish I had as each issue I’ve read has been top notch. Mostly it follows the exploits of the secondary characters who live in the Baxter Building alongside the main Fantastic Four figures (which now includes Spider-Man, who is this year’s Wolverine appearing in every single issue of Marvel Comics).
This issue is a true companion piece to the main Fantastic Four book, including some of the same dialogue even. Basically a couple of the kids from FF follow Reed, Sue, Johnny, Ben and Spider-man to A.I.M. Island. Having read the accompanying issue of Fantastic Four, I had a sense of “oh crap, did I buy this issue twice?” which I have done in the past (mostly accidentally buying a variant cover and then being too embarrassed/lazy to return it), that being said, I really liked this issue.
In a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern kind of way, it shows us a little of what’s happening in the background while the main characters are engaged in their action and this issue has a very sweet ending.
A lot of great characterization and dialogue makes this book highly recommended.
I’m giving FF #22 4 out of 6 possible Aarons.
