FF by Hickman v.3 – Enjoyed this but I think it would have been a better experience to read it side by side with Fantastic Four. Oh well.
The kids make this super fun, I really like Bentley trying to be a bad boy. But while reading this it didn’t feel like a real win for the Fantastic Four/FF. It’s more of a win for Grampa Richards, they were just his pawns. And if you can get past that, there’s still the fact they were using knowledge from the future and it was kind of cheating.
Art was good, highlight was Nick Dragotta. I just got another trade with his art, I don’t remember what at the moment, but it looked like the best work of his I’ve seen. Juan Bobillo on the other hand is real hit and miss. I like how he adds his own touches to the character designs but sometimes the way he draws people is really off. Like Valeria could look like a toddler, doll, or a monster at any given time. And he drew faces on the Celestials. I liked his Dragon Man and his crazy beard Reed was super cool.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ongoing v.1 – This was really good too but I kept expecting their antics from the cartoon. Yet another origin story, it’s essentially the same with a few tweaks. I liked it, Splinter is pretty awesome before the transformation. He’s also a little more like in the cartoon, still training the guys which is a small thing I really like.
Art was great! Major part of why I liked it so much. It’s not a big deal buy I hope they get their own color masks eventually.
