Reed and Sue team up with the New FF in a desperate gambit to find the source of the disease wracking the fabric of spacetime itself. Only one being can follow such an ineffable trail but a resentful Silver Surfer is in no mood to help King T'Challa. Plus Dr. Strange, The Watcher, and the awesome destiny of Gravity!

    It's a definite testament to McDuffie's writing skill that he was able to execute this premise as well as he did. It also helps that the artist was Paul Pelletier, who has worked hard to eliminate most of his bizarre character quirks (huge, pouty lips being the most notable). Pelletier's depiction of the action in space is excellent. Bottom line, how much you enjoy this series will depend on whether you can accept the plot. For me it was a bit of a stretch but not unpleasant. Read Full Review

    Basically, Reed and Panther reuse the weapon that was destroying reality reality, but then Dr Strange shows up in an outside the universe pocket reality where he is fighting the antibodies of Eternity and Storm becomes the vessel to hold Eternity while Strange...uh...operates and excises a pocket reality or something...and then they have supper at the Baxter Building. Gravity was in there doing stuff as well as the suture of the universe or something. Watcher also retconned his secret identity, which makes me wonder if he'll help Spider-Man out. Oh ya, Silver Surfer as well. I'm just gonna file this one under the WTF pile and slowly back away. Read Full Review
