Review: Fantastic Four: True Story #1
When Reed Richards can no longer find solace in the theatrical version of “Josie and the Pussycats”, you know something very serious must be going on! But when the whole world seems to lose it’s love for fiction, some villian must definitely be behind it! Now it’s up to the Fantastic Four, with the help of their old friend Willie Lumpkin, to get to the bottom of the problem. Get ready to take a journey through classic literature with the Fantastic Four as your guides in this all new four part miniseries!
Writer Paul Cornell (Captain Britain and MI:13, Wisdom, TV’s Dr. Who) and artist Horacio Domingues seem to have something really special going on with this series. This book was just a really fun, off the wall experience from start to finish. This is probably unlike any other Fantastic Four book you’ve read before! The story literally finds the FF using their imaginations to get to the bottom of the worlds sudden missing love for fiction. Along the way, the team encounters classic characters throughout literature including Dante (not the one from Clerks) and the Dashwood sisters from Sense and Sensibility. You really feel that Cornell has a great love for the classics with this story. Horacio Domingues’ art is just a blast to look at! His playful style is really a wonderful fit for this book. Just wait till you get a look at the Fictocraft! I would love to see what he could do with Spider-Man. This was just an all around great read that I truly had a blast with and can’t recommend enough!
