    Tom Scioli and the editors deserve a lot of credit for condensing 70+ hears of Fantastic Four history into two issues. Way too many titles feel decompressed and padded to exploit retailers that need products to sell and take advantage of the eventual collected Graphic Novel. This one will work as a single volume but there is so much content here that I appreciate that it been broken up into chapters.

    This installment covers "The Coming of Galactus" storyline and concludes post-Marvel Super-Heroes Secret War. There is a lot of direct references to the comics from those eras and Tom even homages significant covers and panels from the comics he's pulling from. This translates to beautiful reading experience for fans of Marvels Firs more

    I put off reading this back in November because I just didn't have the will to read it, but I'm too OCD to not finish what I started. The continuity and canon changes, while small in the first issue, become much bigger here. And they aren't changes for the better of, at the very least, innocuous. There's a Power Rangers homage, for instance. This issue was just stuffing way too much into itself and didn't even tell the story as it was, which is what I assumed these Grand Designs series are supposed to do. I don't regret skipping this for so long.

    The 4 Fs of FF Grand Design:

    Fails as a history because it makes too many pointless story changes.

    Fails as a character analysis because it changes the characters drastically.

    Fails as an independent, "reimagined" story because it's chaotic and ugly.

    Fails as parody -- a role it otherwise fits perfectly -- because it's not funny.
