Fantastic Four 580Jonathan Hickman // Neil Edwards

***

While his father teaches the super-kids, Franklin foils a toy store team-up of that Silver Age imp & Arcade, the villain whose deathtraps always fail. Meanwhile, the nerds brew a serum that’ll turn Grimm human for a week. Hickman writes FF like it’s contempo TV, curving char & plot arcs every ish.

The Fantastic Four #11

April 8, 2010

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
February 1963
A-story: **** // B-story: ****

A pair of interesting but unsuccessful experiments. The A-story breaks the 4th wall as the FF answers readers’ questions. Stan & Jack also try to justify Sue’s importance to the team (& book) but don’t pull it off. Part B’s an attempt at farce, as the team try to ignore an impish alien in the Mxyzptlk vein.
