Thunderbolts #112

July 25, 2014

Thunderbolts 112Warren Ellis // Mike Deodato
May 2007
****

The team’s a vivid array of luridly damaged psyches. Norman Osborne finally justifies his Clone-era resurrection, but it’s Moonstone & Songbird who stand out (as they had in Busiek’s T-bolts). The women butt heads over the leadership role in a scene out of a military briefing in the Iraqi Green Zone.

The Fantastic Four #10

April 7, 2010

Stan Lee // Jack Kirby
January 1963
****

Aside from a Lee/Kirby cameo, Mr F is the focus of #10, the first issue to feel truly original. Doom returns from space w/ the ability to swap minds. Now Reed must escape Doom’s body & save his pals from himself! Smarting over Sue’s crush on Namor, his loss of power almost works as a metaphor.
