It was the world’s greatest comic magazine - again! Not since the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had a creator so perfectly captured the intense mood, cosmic style and classic sense of adventure of Marvel’s First Family. Fresh off an earth-shattering and reputation-making run as penciler on UNCANNY X-MEN, John Byrne proved his writing talent was every bit the equal of his art as he pulled double duty on FANTASTIC FOUR, launching Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny into realms of imagination and wonder into which few creators before had dared to travel. From the four corners of the globe to the farthest reaches of space to the deepest depths of the Negative Zone, the FF face off against foes old and new - including the Dr. Doom, Galactus and Annihilus! Plus: The FF aid the Inhumans, bid farewell to the Baxter Building, don new costumes and celebrate their 20th anniversary in style as Byrne reminds us all there’s a family at the heart of this team of adventurers!

Les débuts de deux runs historiques, un autre en demi-teinte (de mémoire, seul le back-up sur Fatalis m’avait beaucoup plu dans le cycle de Moench), et un best-of, c’est Byzance !
Autant de publications autour des FF, c’est à se demander s’il n’y aurait pas quelque chose de prévu autour du quatuor dans les mois à venir…
Dommage que l’arc de Thomas, dans lequel Galactus affronte le Maître de l’évolution, ne soit pas inclus dans le hardcover (à choisir, je le préfère à celui avec Gabriel).
