Fantastic Four: Full Circle Review

Fantastic Four Full Circle Custom Feature
The Fantastic Four find themselves with no choice but to journey into the Negative Zone, an alien universe composed entirely of anti-matter, risking not just their own lives but the fate of the cosmos! Fantastic Four: Full Circle is the first longform work written and illustrated by acclaimed artist Alex Ross, who revisits a classic Stan Lee–Jack Kirby story from the 1960s and introduces the storyline for a new generation of readers. With bold, vivid colors and his trademark visual storytelling, Ross takes Marvel’s first team of super heroes to places only he can illustrate. The book also features a special poster jacket, with the front flap unfolding to reveal an all-new fully painted origin story of the Fantastic Four.

"YES. More of this please."

How could you not enjoy the labor of love this tribute project represents? The original graphic novel received a 4.7 on Amazon and 9.8 Critic Rating on Comic Book Round Up. I gave it a perfect score. I thoroughly appreciate a master that has nothing left to prove, still able to find a creative spark to reinvent themselves. Ross released some videos on his YouTube channel revealing the lengths of his new processes. I was shocked in one interview he revealed it only took him three months to draw Full Circle. He also expresses his deep appreciation for Kirby’s work and even the influence of Neal Adams on his penciled style. (While often the main criticism by reviewers) I think Ross’s story reflects a deep love, insight, and understanding of the characters. The FF were in worthy hands and the result was pure comic gold.

Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.

Tyler’s brain is different. Unlike his friends, he has a hard time paying attention in class. He acts out in goofy, over-the-top ways. Sometimes, he even does dangerous things―like cut up a bus seat with a pocketknife or hang out of an attic window. In Button Pusher, cartoonist Tyler Page uses his own childhood experiences to explore what it means to grow up with ADHD. From diagnosis to treatment and beyond, Tyler’s story is raw and enlightening, inviting you to see the world from a new perspective.
