Dr. Doom, participates in an international peace conference at Empire State University... and demands the Fantastic Four act as his bodyguards! When the Sub-Mariner arrives seeking vengeance on Doom, Spidey is caught in the middle!
In any case, regardless of the quality of the writing, Mario Alberti's art is reason enough to pick up this series. It's a little bit Ditko, a little bit Kirby, and therefore perfect for this combination of characters. It'll be interesting to see whether Alberti's style reflects the various eras along with Gage's writing, but even if it doesn't, it's beautiful enough that it won't matter. It's hard to ask for superhero comics better than something like this one: perfectly drawn, brilliantly-written and aimed directly at its target audience. It's as close to flawless as you can reasonably want out of a miniseries. Read Full Review
Spider-Man/Fantastic Four #1 is my favorite comic that I read this past week. Gage and Alberti delivered a comic that is just pure fun. It was a blast revisiting this point in the careers of Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four. Gage has an excellent grasp for all the characters in this issue. He did a great job giving us a complete story in this issue while also putting in a sub-plot that will run throughout this mini-series. If you are a Spider-Man and/or Fantastic Four fan I highly recommend picking this issue up as you are sure to have a blast reading this title. Read Full Review
