    Mike Wieringo deserves full marks for his work on the final pages of this issue, as the arrival of Galactus is a momentous event, and he does a fantastic job selling the impact, with the final page being a great closing visual. The sequence where we see the alien vessel is destroyed is also a decidedly memorable piece of art, and it is nicely capped off by an equally impressive reveal shot. The art also does a pretty effective job on the sequence where we see the damage that was done to the city is being repaired, and the big reveal as we learn what Reed's device actually did was a lot of fun, as how can one not love Johnny look of utter panic, or the sheer delight on Sue's face as she discovers what she's now capable of. I also have to give credit to this issue's cover image for it's delightfully misleading visual, plus the older fan boy in me loves the appearance of a dialogue balloon on the cover. Read Full Review
