So, Marvel is no longer gonna let big box bookstores sell single issue comics, but Hastings has a variant cover to the new fantastic four #1?

I know right?

Black and White were off putting but at least the FF had those colors in their costumes before.

Red is just....yeah wrong.

I really hate these costumes. I'm talking Sue Richards slutty costume hate here and for me that's A LOT of hate.

It reads a lot like the way the FF spoke back before the '90's.

In other words, it might be better than I thought.

Still, the revealed direction remains unappealing.

I thought the same thing about Sue's slutsuit being better when I saw the latest cover solit...

But despite how silly they look, I'm more curious about why they need to change their costumes. Unstable Molecules are supposed to be pretty pricey, so all these variations just because a real world artist (or movie guys) wants to change them doesn't make sense within the context of the MU.

Ok, first thing: Sue doesn't float weightlessly like that variant cover; she rides the force field constructs. Speaking of which, the force fields are supposed to be invisible. I know you need a representation on the page that the reader can see, but the dark and reflective just looks silly. Nitpicky? Yes. But it's details like that which really distract me from the comic book characters I've been reading and loving the longest. (Things like Reed bleeding from being punched just piss me off.)

That dialogue is really bad. Har har indeed.

Now, as to the costumes ... well, the less said the better. I'll just say I don't like them. I didn't like the white ones either, but they had a lot of fans, so who knows?

And finally ... I want to see Fin Fang Foom put Johnny in his pants.

I was wondering about that. I'm not familiar with Hastings. Is it a retail chain ?

No Prize explanation... Sue has a seldom used powers. She can make the invisible visible.

A mostly useless power as things are generally not invisible, but as it is a power of hers, it's not hard to say she's developed it enough that she can turn her own invisibleness visible - thereby giving it refractory properties.

Of course, I doubt the artist/colorist went this far when thinking it through.
