This was an eventful issue, leaving poor Ben Grimm in very dire straits, and Johny-Johny Storm in a position that many men, all better than I, would wrestle with themselves greatly to find the strength to flee. The time reading this book was well spent, though I do find myself starting to wonder if Dan Slott has some kind of grievance with Ben Grimm, Mr. Slott has tended to be a bit rough with The Thing, lately.
The story has quickened even more in this issue, much like writer Dan Slott’s previous work with Marvel’s First Family. We even had the first appearance of new characters, who are together named The Unparalleled. I couldn’t be helped but to instantly love the water witch Elementa, the Unwavering Wave of Justice, who also couldn’t be helped but to instantly love himself.
The artists, Paco Medina and Bob Quinn, achieved results that are to be expected from such a good comic book, the artwork is fantastic and inventive, with great movement and well done characters. This is a very pretty book to view, and if you haven’t as of yet, find a bookstore and buy it. The page that I’ve had open for most of the writing of this work is the last one, what a beautiful and idyllic group of images, one could have a good life and never experience something like that, or see it drawn, like I now have. I’ve blurred the lettering to leave your enjoyment of the ending unspoiled.
The colorwork in the book, including that wonderful last page, was invented and made real by colorist Jesus Aburtov, whose work in this issue, and the last, I’ve greatly enjoyed. Mr. Aburtov made the fight sequences, and the slow action, visually pop . After the entire last page, my favorite of his work was the small panel at the bottom left of page two in which the Overseer of The Unparalleled has his vision of an impending train crash.
Well wishes and envious thoughts will be directed from myself to Johny-Johny Storm until I learn his fate in the next issue.
