Millar's is garbage.


But, one the other hand, Millar's run on Ultimate FF is pretty damn awesome.

Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh. With all that shitty Greg Land art and shit? PASS! I dropped it after that Namor arc.

Really digging Hickman a lot. That's why I asked. I'll read those first two trades and get back to you all.

Yeah Millar's 616 Fantastic Four run is easily one of the most disappointing comics made by an established creator ever.

That being said, it was Hitch at his best.

Greg Land is the reason I have read so little of Gillen's Marvel work. It's not to my taste at all.

The Hickman run of FF is an absolute treat, I loved the year or so after his mega-arc concluded which was just sweet one shots and epilogues.

Um, yeah. It's good but the second volume still isn't finished in monthly form. The book is probably the least of his Marvel titles but it feeds into F4 and Secret Warriors, probably Avengers too before the end of it.

I think it's terrible, but the art is nice, and lots of other people seem to like it.

If you're into Hickman, give it a shot.

Agreed.

I dropped it after issue 2.

Awesome. The colouring felt a bit weird and un-100 Bulletsy but I loved the thing.
