Quote:I'm floored. Chip Zdarsky plucked every damned heart string that this old FFan has left and if Jim Cheung isn't drawing from the heart himself it's a damned good act.
Quote:Unlike their terrible showings in other books this really showed us Ben and Johnny.. and that two faced Victor guy, too. It's not a sad reflection of greatness gone by, it's so far the true continuing story of two great friends who've shared in a terrible tradegy and are trying to move forward the only ways they know how to. Johnny isn't a two dimensional self absorbed idiot, he's a brother, uncle and friend coping with monumental loss. And Ben, Ben is Ben Grimm. That amazing character that a long time ago I said drove the bus on a tour for the readers through the amazing Marvel Universe.
Wait...what tragedy? I thought Reed and Sue were on a mulitversal vacation with the kids? Did I miss a story detail?
Quote:Can't wait for the next issue. Wonderful to read, gorgeous to look at. Heck, Zdarsky even tossed in a editors note in one corner for a reference. Loved seeing that.
Dang, had a whole reply and lost it. As far as the MU proper knows they died, I don't believe Ben or Johnny really know any different, either.
At the end Ben tells Johnny they may still be alive. Doom is spying, because he's Doom, and condemns Ben for lieing to his friend. But maybe Ben does know something. As for Reed and Co returning, it seems anything they are relegated to is a big step down from recreating the multiverse. And considering what Reed left Ben they have the perfect platform to find their family.
