Just not feeling this book and I find the monster designs confusing. I mean where are the eyes?? Just odd art and story to me is meh, so I’m dropping this, but if there is some big twist or it continues to get great reviewsI may get back onboard via the trades.

"Meet my family"

Fantastic Four finally comes together, after sooo long, and the issue ends. It's a bit of a bummer that we still didn't get see the First Family in action, but if the ending is any indication issue 3 will make up for that and then some.

The rest of the issue shows us just what Reed, Sue and the rest of Future Foundation were up to all this time. It turns out more

I am really liking this series. I felt this was the best issue so far and it gave us a hint of what’s going, plus it had a great cliff hanger. Downside is the art - I find it hard to follow in some panels, but I’m on board. Setting a Black Panther storyline in space is turning out to be pretty good.

Anyone reading a book titled ‘Captain America’ and thinks politics won’t be in it is unrealistic. I do not feel Coates is pushing any agenda and while Secret Empire was unpopular I’m glad Coates isn’t ignoring it. It makes for a more layered and complicated Cap, which is also more interesting. Why is there some unwritten rule a writer can’t include another character they are writing more

Not a fan of what Bendis is doing. I was afraid that he would end up destroying some of the things that make Superman unique and great, and it looks like, I was right. He doesn't know how to deal with Superman having a wife and child, so he finds a way to get them out of the picture, while avoiding the backlash he would have received for permanently getting rid of them.

I defend this 2.5 rating and myconius is right also. Rebirth led up to 4 issues devoted to fake Rorschach, mime and marionette??? And now it’s being delayed to the point where it won’t finish until summer of 2019?? This is a colossal let down and even if Johns pulls it together in later issues I’ll probably forget about this series by then.
