New Releases. Notify me. Description The Fantastic Four's road trip through time and space continues! On an alien world, the team encounters a thousand-year-old prophecy Did somebody say, "pass the knife"? And it's a visit to both the beginning and the end of time, as Marvel's first family witnesses the big bang and the big crunch!
But to their surprise, they're not alone! What happens beyond the end of infinite time and space? Plus: one day a year, The Thing reverts to his human form. This year Ben Grimm is going to go home again - as Ben Grimm! And when Franklin and Val have a sibling rivalry, all bets are off! A lot of this book deals with classic Fantastic Four-style stories with the two-part story of the Four encountering the titan Blastaar feeling like a Silver Age comic.
Going back to witness the big bang, the Four discover Blastaar in the midst of his punishment, unknowingly interrupting it, before heading to the end of the universe to right their wrongs.

It shows how their relationship developed, and it's sweet and believable. I also ended up really liking the Age of Ultron issue. No, really. See, it concentrates more on the emotions than the bombastics of an event like this.
It isn't so much about the team fighting Ultron himself, though that does happen. It's really about the team saying goodbye to the children. Reed being so overcome with emotion There's some really good stories in here. Reed being so overcome with emotion that he has to write his message to him That's a scene that will stay with me.
While it isn't nearly so emotionally effective, the time travel story with Julius Caesar is also well done, and has a surprising twist. The Blastaar story, on the other hand, was kind of meh to me. Maybe because I have no personal history with the character, so he was just sort of a random addition to me. And then there's the weird Yancey Street time travel thing. By then, I was just so, so over the whole concept of time travel every issue in this volume has time travel in some form and this was just such a silly, mundane use.

It dragged. So that's three stories that were quite good, and two that were just kind of ok. Pretty good average. Sep 13, Scott S. Otherwise, this volume was disappointing as it did not seem to live up to the previous book nor advance the main story-line. Nov 19, Joe Young rated it really liked it. Thrill as the superheroes travel to ancient Rome to hang out with Julius Caesar! Be touched by a love-note sent from husband to wife through the fog of time!
This grahpic novel has the FF undertake many fun adventures but Reed, who is trying to keep his familys' degenerative disorder a secret, is coming apart at the seams. Like any wife with above-rock intelligence, Sue sees that Reed is hiding something. He comes clean, and they both have to tell Ben as he is showing signs of deterioration.
There is a strong feeling of dread - waiting for the other shoe to drop - at the end of the collection. I can't wait to see what comes next!

Collecting Fantastic Four comic books as Graphic Novels
There were a couple of really good stories in here, and some really mediocre ones. The manner in which each one was disconnected was disorienting and I was frequently left confused by how they were all connected. The Age of Ultron story plopped right in the middle without context was the worse, especially since the next issue picks up as if it never happened. Which if I remember the confusing mess of Age of Ultron it never did? Feb 19, Nicolas rated it it was ok Shelves: graphic-novels , time-travel. I liked the story arc set up in volume one, but this felt more like a dull collection of vaguely connected standalones.
Hopefully volume three gets it back on track. Overall, This series feels like an animated series in comic book form; good stuff! Oct 28, Shannon rated it really liked it Shelves: comic-book. While these stories are not great, it is at least an attempt to do something somewhat different with a comic that has been around for 50 years.
The writer gets some credit for that. Little jumpy in places, and Johnny's immaturity was heavy-handed at times, but still an enjoyable read for the sci-fi superhero fan. Jun 07, Angela rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novels , marvel. Things are not that straight forward as Sue is starting to suspect that Reed is hiding something. This is a fun book and you really get the sense of the importance of family in it. I particularly liked Reed's version of falling in love with Sue.
A very good read. Apr 24, Mr Osowski rated it it was amazing. I basically never read Fantastic Four. But Fraction makes it worthwhile. Probably my favorite modern writer. A very fun and kooky trip that also tries to be more ambitious and deeper in emotional storytelling than the usual Marvel fare.

In the second volume of the Fraction relaunch of Fantastic Four, the original Four plus Valeria and Franklin are still randomly voyaging through time and space. Each issue is set in a different time and place, ranging from the beginning of the universe to the very end. Banter abounds, but the plot is thin.

I've really enjoyed Fraction's work on other Marvel titles, Hawkeye in particular, and I did enjoy this volume. However, it is not a Fantastic Four run that I can see being considered an indisp In the second volume of the Fraction relaunch of Fantastic Four, the original Four plus Valeria and Franklin are still randomly voyaging through time and space.
However, it is not a Fantastic Four run that I can see being considered an indispensable part of the reading canon. That isn't to say that it's terrible or not worth reading at all. Fraction has a great grasp of the characters and the banter between Valeria and Franklin and Johnny and Ben makes for a fun read. There are some great story ideas, like Ben using his one day as a human for that year to go back in time and protect Yancy Street from mobsters and the unexpected fate of Julius Caesar.
There is the barest hint of a story arc, in the form of the disease killing Reed. The problem though is that this is really not elaborated on. Reed never seems to actually work on solving the problem. When it is brought up, it's either in the form of Reed feeling guilty for keeping it a secret from the others or Sue being angry with him for keeping the secret.
For Reed's life literally being on the line, as well as possibly the rest of the team, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of urgency there. Sep 15, Andy rated it really liked it. Didn't expect to enjoy the second volume of the Fantastic Four book more than the second volume of the FF book, but hey - I did. And look, both books that Fraction is writing and really almost every book Matt Fraction is writing right now , are really good. But the reason I liked this book so much, or at least at all, is because it hit the Fantastic Four beats so well, the beats that make me love this book so much when it's good.
It is a huge adventure story, transcending space and time, but at Didn't expect to enjoy the second volume of the Fantastic Four book more than the second volume of the FF book, but hey - I did. It is a huge adventure story, transcending space and time, but at it's root, it is still a family story - and even when it gets sappy and it DOES , it's just great.
It works, because you LOVE this family. You love the FF family too and all the little kids at the Future Foundation, but the core 4 6 now really strike a nerve with me. That all being said, this isn't as good as when Hickman was writing, though that is one of my favorite runs on any comic book in recent history, but it doesn't have to be. It is serving it's purpose wonderfully, just kind of doing one-off not really stories in time - my favorite type of stories.
Bagley is good for the most part, but he's never really been my favorite. Arajuo on the Age of Ultron tie-in is awesome though and will be looking for him some more. Anyway, it's just enjoyable. Will be sad to see Fraction off these books. Feb 09, Silas rated it it was amazing. I haven't read Fantastic Four a whole lot in the past, and this volume has me questioning why.
I am, of course, familiar with the characters, since they have shown up in a lot of other places other comics, movies, an animated series from years ago , I have read some Fantastic Four comics, and know more or less how the characters work. I also read the previous volume. This was both a lot of fun, and really moving. It emphasizes the Fantastic Four as a family, and gives them some real conflicts t I haven't read Fantastic Four a whole lot in the past, and this volume has me questioning why.
It emphasizes the Fantastic Four as a family, and gives them some real conflicts to deal with, both external and internal. Right in the middle of the story, there is a diversion for the Age of Ultron story, which both had touching moments of self-sacrifice that brought a tear to my eye, and set up another big conflict that will likely come up in the next volume. In between those moments, there were multiple time travel storylines that were both fun single issue stories, educational opportunities this would be great for younger kids , and interesting thought experiments.
This was all really tight, well-executed, and tied together interestingly. I am definitely interested in seeing how this storyline continues, and this is so good, I am now interested in going back and reading more Fantastic Four.
