    Scot Eaton's work has always been a little hit and miss with me, but part of this could be the simple fact that he's a relatively new artist who may still be trying to find a style that suits him. As such, I enjoy some of his efforts more than others. His work on this issue convinces me that he's a very talented artist with a long future in the industry. This issue has a nice polished look about it that reminded me a bit of established artists like Steve Epting and Paul Pelletier..., good company to be included alongside. The art on this issue displays a very good understanding of the big ideas, like the slow burning internal rage of Victor Von Doom as he finds himself having to accept the continual reminders of his inferior position, which makes his explosion in the final pages all the more powerful. There's also a great little moment where Victor Von Doom's hatred for Reed Richards didn't die when Reed did (that is, if Reed is really dead). Read Full Review

    This is worth a look for fans of good supervillain stories, and is thoroughly accessible even for FF novices such as myself. However, true fans might be disappointed to learn that the connection to the original FF team is weak, and the plotting slightly derivative. Nonetheless, the series holds potential, and at only 3 issues long, doesnt look as though its likely to outstay its welcome. Read Full Review
