Fantastic Four #31
The Mad Menace Of The Macabre Mole Man!

October 20, 2014 | Drew | (No Comments)

Having just read, and as I sit down to write my comic book review Fantastic Four #31, I find that I let the action, and all the promises made fly though my head.  First and foremost, this tale signals the return of the Mole Man last seen in Fantastic Four #22. Then as if that is not enough, the cover offers the promise of a s surprise character seen only briefly, but who’s identity would shock us.   Then, on the opening page, we get yet another guarantee; the Fantastic Four will stand against the Avengers in this issue as well!

But then all stories have a beginning,   this one starts out with an unexpected earthquake in New York. From there we have the Fantastic Four, less sue storm going out to investigate, and learning of a missing city block. Sue on the other hand, got distracted by something she spotted in a newspaper as the earthquake happened.  Instead of joining the team, she is off to police headquarters for unexplained reasons.   it is not that many pages further in that Mole man captures Sue, and threatens the Fantastic Four against interference. Beyond that, he is going to hold them accountable for the actions of all, leaving them to stop the avengers whom are about the set out on an investigation of their own.Fantastic Four Vs Avengers

Daredevil #4
Killgrave, The unbelievable purple man!

March 28, 2014 | Drew | (No Comments)

In sitting down to write my comic book review of  Daredevil #4 and the story titled “Killgrave, The unbelievable purple man!” I find myself thinking, that this tale may be one of the better mind control stories I have seen so far.   While the starting crime of him robbing the bank, seems a bit weak, where the tail goes from there, seems fitting.   In this tale, we have Killgrave (The Purple Man), whom has the power to control the minds and wills of anyone whom he is near.  however -as fate would have it- Daredevil finds that his blindness has made him immune to The Purple Man’s Powers.   The the critical nature of the mission becomes even more so as Killgrave takes an interest in Karen, and uses his power to change her allegiance to serving him.

Fantastic Four #8
Prisoners of the Puppet Master

September 29, 2011 | Drew | (2 Comments)

Including Fantastic Four #8 we are up to 4 out of 8 issues that the Fantastic Four are described as being Prisoner’s.  if anything I am seeing this as a theme for what the early Fantastic Four stories where about, them being captured, in part or as a whole and finding their way free.

This issue of Fantastic Four, is one of the best I reviewed so far. It had development and depth that the story has needed.  Also it introduces a classic Super Villain, the Puppet Master, as well as Alicia Masters.

Fantastic Four #5
Prisoners of Doctor Doom!

September 3, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

After the last issue of Fantastic Four knocked my sox off, I went into reading this one filled with high hopes. Would the tale that introduced Dr.Doom be as compelling and as good as the tale that reintroduced Namor?

The cover and the opening pages offered such promise, starting off with the view of our new antagonist. Then leading into the home of our hero’s.  where some character development by way of a skirmish between The Thing and The Human Torch is about to be underway.

What’s the matter with the four of us? Whenever we’re not fighting some menace to mankind, we end up fighting among ourselves!

While the issue starts off good, I must say it does not live up to the expectations I had after  last issue.
