The Fantastic Four: Solve Everything

Wow... a really impressive modern storyline with old school comic touches. Fantastic Four issues 570 - 572 features a storyline called, "Solve Everything."

I won't go into the details of the plot other than to say it was fresh, exciting and reminiscent of the Fantastic Four of days past. Issue 570 begins the creative lineup of writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Dale Eaglesham.

I can't recall the last time I was so happy with a Fantastic Four story since the days of John Byrne. Eaglesham has a very appealing style: smooth, clean pencils that give the finished look an almost painted style. He also tends to depict Mr. Fantastic is all sort of stretched out positions... even when he's eating breakfast. In short, the book has a very fun feel to it without being silly or goofy.

Of course, being a Fantastic Four collector (I have all regular issues beginning with #1 from 1961) I have a soft spot for the resurrected 70s style logo.

I can't wait until the next issue, and I hope this is a creative team they keep around for a long time.
