This review is from: Fantastic Four Visionaries: John Byrne Volume 2 TPB: John Byrne v. 2 (Paperback)
With the movie due out soon, now is a good time to bone up on Marvel's First Family. After Lee and Kirby's original breathtaking run, the classic run on Fantastic Four was by John Byrne. When I was a kid, I can safely say that it was Byrne's art and writing that hooked me on comic books. The man could turn his hand to any hero and make them look cool and weave intriguing storylines around them. But his best work was on FF and Superman, both of which he effectively fixed after the characters were run down by lesser creators.
This volume features some of the early part of Byrne's run, including a fantastic Galactus storyline which holds the fate of Frankie Raye, the Human Torch's girlfriend, and a meeting with the Inhumans. There is also an obligatory Dr Doom story, which does not disappoint and a story featuring X-Men character, the Gladiator. If there is a criticism to aim at this collection, it's the flatness of the colouring which does not suit the glossy paper stock used, but this is a small niggle for what is a good couple of hours entertainment that you will want to come back to.
