Fantastic Four New Fan Trailer!!
Edited by Michael Vasquez!!
This is from the 1st Fantastic Four (1994) movie which was never officially released and has been denied existence. I thought this movie ruled, it's better than the stupid MTV-ized, overbudgeted/overhyped trendy crapfest that's market researched for mass consumption by people that don't even read comics. This one is campy/comical, the way Fantastic Four is SUPPOSE to be.

So the all powerful super robot that the nu-world team built to be the peace keeper of nu-world has gone haywire and escaped to our earth and is carrying out his primary objective. That objective is to neutralize all weapons and threats. He knows no good or evil so anything with power or a weapon is considered a threat including our heroes. I've been really disappointed in this book. I had read a lot of hype about this story arch and I usually love Mark Millar's stuff so I was really excited to get into this one but it has been downright boring. There is none of the team dynamic that makes the FF great and not a lot or real action either. No super smart plans or gadgets or strategies to save the day, nothing of what makes the Fantastic Four great. They bring in 40 of marvels biggest guns and all they do is throw themselves at the robot and get swatted aside. There is now strategy or even dialog. Mr. Fantastic wasn't even in this issue which could be part of the problem and I get that all of this destruction is to build up how big of a threat this really is until Mr. Fantastic can show up and save the day as he zooms off on some sort of fantastic bike on the last page, but really we didn't need this issue. It's one of those filler issues that are supposed to build up some anticipation for the big battle but all it did was try my patience. You can probably wait on this one until next month when the action gets started.
Batman Death Mask #1
This is the first of a four part mini series written and drawn by the amazing manga artist yoshinori natsume. Of all the super hero characters batman probably translates best into the manga style. His action, hand to hand combat, and gadgets play really well with the art style and his dark , brooding side fits to the story content as his inner demons are often more fierce and dangerous than his external ones. This is a thick book, which reads right to left in the Japanese style, with a lot of content. There is a villain from batman's past that has returned and is attacking the citizens of Gotham and the darknight's dreams. The art is fantastic, there is a two page panel that includes a manga version of all the batman's major rogues that is cool to see, especially the female ones, and the action is swift and exciting. The colorless panels add to the pulp quality of the book and the dark tone of the story. We will also get to see a bit of history during the time Bruce Wayne spent in Japan training to become the bat. It is a great read and if you are into batman, manga, or just looking for a mini series for a change of pace this is one you've got to pick up.
I've gotta tell you, I have been excited about this book for the last month or so since they've started advertising it. I love the titan characters, the team and their dynamic. Nightwing has always been one of my favorite characters and I think he works great in a team setting. I followed him through the teen titans, the titans and then the outsiders. Even his recent movement to stay away from the team setting has still added an interesting depth to his character. The other characters are great as well. The flash, Donna Troy, and who doesn't love Starfire in all her free spirited glory. Which we get to see, as she flies around animal man's back yard pool naked as can be basking in the sun's rays. One good thing about titan books you can always count on a lot of skin when Koriander is involved. The book takes us through each of the characters getting attacked by something metaphysical and coming together to see some of their former teammates that weren't so lucky. Cyborg has been ripped to pieces, hawk and dove are in serious condition, son of Vulcan, lagoon boy and anima are comatose, little barda is critical and power boy is dead. A lot of damage has been done and it is all to clear who has brought this threat to the titans. Trigon is back. Raven's demon father who brought the new teen titans together and began one of the greatest teams in the history of comics has done it again. I am so excited about this and can't wait for the next issue.
This issue runs parallel with the first issue of secret invasion and explains what happened when Sue Storm blew up the Baxter Building. It starts off with a prologue that explains how the invisible woman was captured by a skrull posing as her husband. As this is going on the “he loves you” attack we witnessed in secret invasion #1 is being carried out by another skrull. It’s really quite geneouse knowing that it would attract too much attention and come with too much risk to try and kill the fantastic four directly they neutralized the members as well as their technology (possibly their greatest weapon) by transporting the whole damn thing to the n-zone. The real twist comes as Johnny figures out that hhis sister is an imposter and she reveals herself to be Johnny’s old skrully flame, forgive me I couldn’t resist, Lyja. Marvel is doing a really good job of showing that backstory of the invasion as it relates to current events and this looks to be a great mini series. For the next two issues we’ve got Johnny, Ben, the kids trapped in the Baxter building with a Skrull and a grip of N-zone monsters. We’re in store for some excitement.
