FF #1 - Parts of a Hole Review

FF #1 Review

FF #1 Cover
We have seen the future and it will be fantastic! In the absence of the Fantastic Four, a substitute Four, hand-picked by the real deal--Ant-Man, Medusa, She-Hulk and Miss Thing--stand ready to guard the Earth and the nascent Future Foundation for four minutes... NOW! what could possibly go wrong?

Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

FF #1 Adams Varian- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 3/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

FF #1 Young Variant Verdict - 4

- This was one of the Marvel NOW! titles I was unsure about picking up. The concept just seemed odd, and the characters are unfamiliar to me. The cover doesn't do much to encourage me either. The art, coloring and inking in the book is OK but not my favorite. I will say they did a good job to introduce new readers to the Future Foundation. The book starts by showing the children of the FF talking to somebody, who we later learn in the final panel is Ant-Man (Lang), who asked them to tell him what the FF is. This issue concentrates on Reed and the rest of the family trying to recruit individuals to take their place in-case something goes wrong during their mission to find a cure from Fantastic Four #1 - Unstable. I believe they did a good job to assist new readers into this title, and allow them to catch up and learn what the book is going to be about. I do still find it confusing with the whole 4 minute thing from Fantastic Four how this book is going to have any bearing, or for that matter how the Fantastic Four will when it comes to the overall Marvel Universe. I guess we will find out over the next year. Like I mentioned I didn't have this on my pull list but after reading the first issue, I'm definitely looking forward to the next.
