4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the greatest, 6 Oct 2007
This review is from: Essential Fantastic Four Volume 2 TPB: v. 2 (Paperback)
Taken as a whole, this collection is a fine example of silver age comic books, with decent stories and great art. The trouble is that coming between Essential Fantastic Four vol. 1 (origins of the FF, first appearances of Namor, Mole-Man, and Dr Doom) and Essential Fantastic Four vol. 3 (Galactus, the Inhumans, the Negative Zone, etc) it's hard not to see this as the comparatively dull bit in the middle, the calm before the creative storm. It's nice to see poor Sue finally get a useful power; it's interesting to learn about Dr Doom's origins; it's fun to see the Fantastic Four fight Hitler - but these stories seldom reach the heights of greatness that were to come in volumes 3 and 4. Thus, in spite of some Kirby-tastic art, only four stars. Better was to come.
