FF #22 (Long reign of ping-pong dominance Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Oct 01, 2012 11:29 am

The second part of a crossover which began in the most recent issue of Fantastic Four, this was a very strong issue which focussed on one of my favourite FF supporting characters, Bentley 23. I did find it a bit odd that most of the issue took place at the same time as the first part of the story, and we only got to the cliffhanger towards the end, but it was fun seeing the Future Foundation kids play Ping-Pong with eachother. The artwork from Andre Araujo was very good, I don’t know his work, but he’s another artist for this book who brings a children’s illustrator style to things, which is a good fit. In the end, Bentley rejects his ‘father’ and demonstrates that he has free will. This was a powerful scene, and then Hickman tops everything off with a sweet romantic bit at the end, I didn’t know he had it in him! I’ve really been enjoying these last few months of coda issues, and I hope that Hickman’s last issue finishes things off well in time for Fraction and Allred to come in and have some fun.

Best comic I've read all year. Probably up there with the absolute best stuff I've read in the last few years. An extraordinarily high benchmark.

Bentley is one the best things to come out of FF.

I hope that the future writers on this book use him as well as Hickman.

I didn't realize Val was only 3 years old.
Frank, sometimes I really wish you didn't beat that cancer.

Yeah, she's annoying well beyond her years.
