    Having the action set in the past has its good points, but it also has its bad. On the good side, this untold chapter of Johnny past does allow Karl Kesel to develop some much needed back story for the character outside the confines of the team. Having the story set in the past also allows Johnny to be more impulsive & the book certainly has some fun playing up the idea that Johnny is a young hotshot who is prone to act without thinking, and as such he's likely to make mistakes that he's going to regret, with the last page of this issue being a prime example. However, on the bad side of the equation, Karl Kesel is rather limited in the type of plot he can deliver while this book is set in the past, as we know Johnny's future, and simple logic tells us that nothing too momentous can play out in these pages. Still I welcome a second book focused on the Fantastic Four, and I have high hopes for the book thanks largely to Karl Kesel's involvement. Read Full Review
