    Mark Russell and Sean Izzake's deliver another entertaining and melodramatic revision of the Fantastic Four in this continuity-free real-time take on Marvel's First Family. There are the familiar themes of social injustice we've come to love from Russell's writing (well, I have anyway) mixed in with superhero soap opera and a drastic change in the status quo of the Fantastic Four too.

    It is all handled with humor and great dialogue. Russell is only getting better as a writer and it shows. The art by Izaakse is perfect and shows us new aspects of these age old characters. This is the best Fantastic Four book in twenty five years. Read Full Review

    If Sue actually does consummate her extramarital attraction to the Sub-Mariner as this story implies, I dont think I want to know about it. What I do want to know is what happens when Galactus finally comes--and where in the heck the Silver Surfer is! But well have to wait for the answers to all this, as this peculiar rewrite of the history of Marvels founding heroes passes into the 1980s next issue. Read Full Review

    Marvel's First Family enters the 1970s as Sue Storm deals with parenthood and the shifting political winds of a turbulent decade. Also: Doom enters the picture. Read Full Review

    Life Story fails to entirely recapture the balance that made the first issue so promising, but still contains a solid appreciation of history and character that works in some regards, if not all. Read Full Review
