    Fantastic Four #1: A Wonderful Welcome Home

    Fantastic Four #1 (Marvel Comics)
    By Dan Slott, Sara Pichelli, Elisabetta D’Amico, Marte Gracia, Simone Bianchi, Marco Russo, Skottie Young, Jeremy Treece & Joe Caramagna


    When Marvel cancelled Fantastic Four in 2015, with no plans to relaunch it yet, there was an uproar. Some people, some of those marvelously cynical people who live on the Internet, argued that nobody cared about the Fantastic Four anyway. But that’s clearly not true. The Fantastic Four is my favorite Marvel property. The Thing is my number two character in all of comics (after Superman). And having them missing from my life for three years has created a hole that’s just gotten bigger and bigger.

    In one issue, Dan Slott has made me feel like we’re finally coming home.

    Ben and Johnny, both still believing Reed, Sue, and the kids are dead, are trying to get on with their lives. Ben and Alicia are evaluating their relationship (as they often do), Johnny is palling around with...

    Three Wishes: The Toys That Made Us

    The best reason to subscribe to Netflix these days isn’t Orange is the New Black or Arrested Development. Heck, it’s not even Bright. The shining jewel in the streaming service’s crown is The Toys That Made Us, a documentary series that looks into the history and impact of some of the most popular toy lines of all time. With a lighthearted tone, the series dives into things that the viewer grew up with, chock full of interviews with the people who conceived the toys, creators who made the TV and comic book tie-ins, and supercollectors. Plus, you get all the classic toy commercials you grew up with.

    The eight episodes, to date, have explored the worlds of Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man, G.I. Joe, Star Trek, TransFormers, LEGO, and Hello Kitty. That’s a ton of toyetic goodness. But if you’re like any other human being, you probably read that list and immediately asked, “Hey, what about…” and then filled in whatever your own favorite toy line is.That’s natural, there are...

    Amazing Spider-Man #800: A Finale That Goes Down With the Greats

    Amazing Spider-Man #800 (Marvel Comics)

    With the exception of Brian Michael Bendis, I don’t think anyone in history has written Spider-Man as long as Dan Slott, and when you’re talking about the “main” Spider-title (be it Amazing or Superior), Slott probably holds the title outright. With Slott finally walking away from the title and character he has steered for so long, the urge has to be to go out on the biggest boldest, most character-defining story you’ve ever written.

    Slott nails it.

    As we go into the final chapter of “Go Down Swinging,” things are looking bleak. Peter Parker’s arch-enemy, Norman Osborn, has merged with the homicidally insane Carnage symbiote, creating a “Red Goblin” far more powerful than...

  • Three Wishes: Release These Comics!

    Three Wishes: Release These Comics!

    Having several friends who own or work in comic stores, I get a lot of good opportunities to talk about trends in the business. One thing I’ve heard almost universally over the last few years is that the comic book back issue market has completely tanked. Even though selling old comics is what the comic shop industry was built on, shop owners now have to turn to alternative sources of revenue like collectibles, toys, cards, clothing, and appearing on AMC network reality shows. With the exception of rare issues, first appearances, and other things that hold serious monetary value, there’s simply no need to hunt for back issues anymore. In the Oughts, publishers began to grow much more aggressive with their bookshelf program. What once had been reserved for “special” storylines or archival reprints soon began to apply to virtually every comic book published. Nowadays a reader can be fairly well assured that any comic book appearing on the shelf will see print in a paperback or hardcover...
