    The End of the Fantastic Four?

    If you can't tell already, I am a huge fan of the Fantastic Four. I have read all 588 issues to be brought to this "final" issue.  Wow.  Let me say that again, Wow.  Where do I start?  The art.

      So. Here we are. The final issue of the Fantastic Four. Is it at least good? Spoilers ahead.  Oh yeah. To be honest, I actually don't care for the art of the main story so much. Epting took the month off and we got Nick Dragotta instead. I am not too familiar with his style. But then after going through the story, it seems to fit the issue well. The facial expressions really tell the tale and get you feeling what the character is going through. Dragotta and Hickman sure paired well here.   I do ...
