Fantastic Four #12 (Marvel, 1963)
As a longtime Fantastic Four collector, the Hulk vs Thing (and the rest of the FF) battle in Fantastic Four #12 might just be my favorite among the early issues.  The debut of Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four #5 is way up there… but I think I have to give the edge to Fantastic Four[...]
Fantastic Four #33 Review: A Little Far Fetched
While this marriage is ceremonial in nature — the not-so-good Doctor has no prurient expectations of her — it remains a big show, and Doom wants to make a splash, including having his implacable foil Reed Richards as best man and a pledge to end all grudges with any attendees, bringing T'challa and Namor out,[...]

It's Not The Return Of Fantastic Four For Marvel Legacy… It's Marvel Two-In-One
It's not The Fantastic Four, but the revival of FF spin-off title from the seventies, Marvel Two-In-One, the team-up book that originally featured the Thing and whoever else was around And now teaming up the remaining FF members on Earth, The Thing and The Human Torch. And a homage cover by Edgar Delgado. We wondered how[...]
What the Fantastic Four Got Wrong (SPOILERS)
This happaned after my own misgivings for months after the first trailer was released, as that trailer to me felt too oppressively dark and dour, and again for me, that is not what the Fantastic Four are. Amazingly, I actually quite enjoyed the start of the film (although even in that first act, there were one[...]
