Review: “Fantastic Four #11”

“Fantastic Four #11” shines the spotlight on the ever-lovable, ever-rocky Ben Grimm, a character whose depth and charm never seem to wane. It’s hard to resist a story where we get a blend of falling houses and pesky dogs – the very kind of quirky adventures that the Fantastic Four is known for. In an era where large-scale interconnected narratives dominate the comic scene, this issue serves as a breath of fresh air with its episodic approach. It’s a testament to the richness of the FF’s world that they can effortlessly traverse tales ranging from the heartwarming streets of New York to the farthest corners of the cosmos.

While the story encapsulates the spirit of the Fantastic Four perfectly, the art leaves a bit to be desired. The inconsistency in the artwork, particularly in the portrayal of the team members and notably Ben, might jar some loyal fans. Rendering the Thing is no easy task, but this iteration doesn’t quite hit the mark.

That said, the mesmerizing covers by the legendary Alex Ross are the cherry on top, adding an aura of classic allure to the book.

To sum it up, “Fantastic Four #11” is a delightful read that reminds us why we fell in love with Marvel’s First Family in the first place. While there’s room for artistic improvement, the narrative stands strong, making it a must-read for all FF aficionados.
