    Karragan the Unforgiving comes across with anger and bitterness because he lost his world and when he faced down Johnny, I thought all hell was going to break loose, but Johnny now has the power cosmic and is able to defeat him with ease. Johnny is scared of that power and what else can he do with this kind of power?

If Quasar hadn't joined the FF on their quest for Johnny, I don't see how they could have went after Johnny in deep space. They are fortunate to have Quasar temporarilly on their team!

The art also does some lovely work when it comes to the delivery of the Kirby-tech that litters the interior of Galactus' ship, and the big action scene where Johnny uses the power cosmic on the attacking warrior was a wonderfully unsettling image. I also rather enjoyed the flashback scene, as Ben's physical form has the softer appearance that many artist forget to deliver when they Read Full Review

    Waid and Wieringo delivered an excellent Dr. Doom story awhile back. With the FFs second-most iconic foe in their sights, theyre set to repeat. Too bad this is their last go-round with Marvels First Family. Hopefully itll be their best. Read Full Review
