More Kirby classics...,
This review is from: Essential Fantastic Four Volume 4 TPB: v. 4 (Paperback)
Jack Kirby, eh? What a guy. As if the glories of volume three - Galactus the World-Eater, the electronic jungles of Wakanda, the Negative Zone - hadn't been enough to convince us of his brilliance, he just ploughed straight on, and in this volume you can see the results: the galaxy-spanning Kree aliens, the microscopic marauder Psycho-Man, more craziness with The Inhumans, the jaw-dropping Human Beehive, and more Kirby dots than you can shake The Thing at. Forget the annoying Stan Lee-isms coming out of the characters mouths. Ignore the word balloons and the sometimes formulaic plots. Just look at the art. You will never see such overwhelmingly alien worldscapes in all of comics.
In one early issue in this book, there's a full-page image of Alicia Masters standing in front of a gigantic, indescribable... thing... with an expression of amazement on her face. That's pretty much how I feel about this collection. It's weird and glorious and brilliant and totally bizarre. Unquestionably worth five stars.
