Loved the first issue, and this looks awesome! She-thing makes so much more sense now, I'm definitely picking up FF when it comes out.

I must say, I love the white and black costumes much, much more than the classic blue ones. Best costume update in comic book history IMO.

Theres a reason why Bagley draws so fast: he draws the same thing repeatedly. Every face, expression are all the same. His art is very weak.

CaptainAmerica1945 - 11/15/2012, 2:56 PM
Fantastic 4, 5, 6,.... 16! Soon they will have more people then the Avengers (and probably by then Wolverine will be on the team as well).

@Kamen Rider......that's not Pym its erik

@Kamen Rider and @elessarundomiel actually it's Scott Lang. I read the first issue, not bad but honestly after reading Hickmans full run on both Fantastic Four and FF, it seemed like a huge let down. Hickman had this masterful vision leading up to the events after Johnny came back and i don't know if anyone will handle the characters quite as well again.

Finally someone agrees with me. In a perfeect world they'd just have Bagley do roughs - his composition's good - and have someone who can actually draw faces finish. Same thing with JR Jr. You just can't draw that fast and have it look good.
