About this deal

because there are so many characters in this book that you wanted to see in a comic and they're all in there (i'm including volume 2 in this). Art by Mark Bagley, Barry Kitson, Dale Eaglesham, Lorenzo Ruggiero, Adi Granov, Neil Edwards, Andrew Currie, Paulk Neary, Scott Hanna, Steve Epting, Rick Magyer, Mike Perkins, Nick Dragotta, Mark Brooks, Butch Guice, and Sean Chen. These also happen to be a handful of my favorite artists, especially Epting, Dragotta, and Tocchini and they all obviously know how special this run is and their layouts are fantastic. Similarly I don't know how Doom suffered brain damage, and the dead Future Galactus is only briefly explained later in the book. But it took me about three months to read this (comparatively thin) omnibus because I just didn't care about so many of the storylines.

This is a book I'm going to have to read again to better understand and pick up on smaller ideas I might have missed in my first read. The bit that made me well up was when The Thing was at his lowest, he was hurting emotionally really badly, but he had no way to release his anger, so what does he do! He is known for creating the Image Comics series The Nightly News, The Manhattan Projects and East of West, as well as working on Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four, FF, and S.Grieving, the surviving members of the Fantastic Four dissolve the team - but from its ashes will rise the Future Foundation!

And as the Fantastic Four fight the War of the Four Cities, Reed Richards assembles a band of genius youngsters. There's a turning point where everything locks into place, though, and like Hickman's other books, it's totally mind-blowing when that point hits. Hickman, Jonathan,Dragotta, Nick,Eaglesham, Dale,Edwards, Neil,Epting, Steve Fantastic Four by Jonathan Hickman Omnibus Vol. Hickman introduces a lot of ideas early on, and at some point you start doubting if all this will eventually have some sort of payoff.But i have to get one thing out of the way, the quality of this book, and by that i mean the paper quality is abysmal, this is no way to treat fans of the Marvel omnibus, that is supposedly the best of there line. Things kick off with a Dark Reign tie-in miniseries, in which Hickman immediately gets into the head of Mr. In one aspect, though, this collection falls well short of its predecessor: there’s a lack of artistic continuity, with fifteen pencil artists involved over 31 chapters.
