Yancy Street Gang

Fantastic Four #20
The Mysterious Molecule Man!

February 2, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)

For a story that has it all, from Yancy Street and a member of its gang to The Watcher Uato you need to look no farther than Fantastic Four #20. The story “The Mysterious Molecule Man!” is one that has begun to raise the bar of what we expect in epic future of the Fantastic Four!

to summarize the story, the Watcher warns the Fantastic Four of a new threat, the Molecule Man,  just moments before they are to do battle with him,  Letting them in on his origin, but is it enough for them to defeat a foe that could likely destroy universes. (more…)

Fantastic Four #17
Defeated By Doctor Doom!

Fantastic Four 17

I am sure by now you have read my comic book review of Fantastic Four #16 published just yesterday, and not only read the issue, but read Fantastic Four #17 as well, then came back eager to see what I thought of the classic comic book story?

I thought it was a more than fitting part two, and completion of the story. That said unlike the last issue, I do have some issues with this one that i will discuss Below.

but lets first summarize the story;  back from the Micro-world, the Fantastic Four say good-by to ant-man, and begin seeking out Doctor Doom, whom is already working on his plan to defeat the Fantastic Four. Step after step Doom seems to be just ahead of the Fantastic Four; even capturing Alicia Masters as  a prisoner.

Fantastic Four Annual 1#

Today for Thanksgiving, and for my last comic book review this holiday week, I present a great classic comic book.  Here we have Fantastic Four annual #1, To my research this 75 page issue came out in  July of 1963, with the feature story taking place between Fantastic Four #15 & #16.

While being a 75 page epic issue,  the feature story is only about 37 pages but the issue includes a lot more than just that, here is a complete list:

  • 37 pages for the feature story
  • 11 pages of Fantastic Four Famous Foes Pinups
  • 6 page retelling of part of Amazing Spider-Man #1, where spider-man meets the Fantastic Four
  • Reprint of the Origin of the Fantastic Four from Fantastic Four #1
For for today, a day where many of my readers will be going back for seconds and even desert, lets serve up this extra big, extra special issue, as i will discuss all that it offers below.

The Fantastic Four Battle the Mad Thinker and His Awesome Android

Fantastic Four #15

What a long story title for the story we will review from Fantastic Four #15. Forget the idea of it being “A Book-Length Saga!” it is almost a book length title.  but this leaves us to wonder, is the story that falls under it any good? and worth of such awesome words?  Or does it Fail to impress?  All i will tell you for now, is this one has proven to be a hard comic book for me to review.

Fantastic Four #6
Captives of the Deadly Duo

September 16, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

At long last, I return to the Fantastic Four with Fantastic Four #6. While it may see like it was a long wait, it was nowhere near as long as the 2 months that people in 1962 would have waited for this September issue.

Two issues ago, they reintroduced the Sub-Mariner.  Last issue they introduced Dr.Doom.  Now, in just one volume both threat’s are back, and working together to put a stop to the Fantastic Four.
