    Well, sure. But everything Waid said was the set-up for the book, we got. And we still got some action.

    Even Bendis's All-New X-Men #1 moved at a faster pace than this comic.

    (Hickman's Avengers is the one I really expect will hit the ground running.)

    that's because it is a book about an engine of destruction. the hulk audience like Hulk because he hits things. i read indestructible hulk. there was a considerably detailed diner scene at the start of it. the action was only a few pages and not all that exciting. i actually prefered Banner explaining the change in his own m.o. anyways, Fraction did exactly what he was supposed to do. he's easing the audience into this because (as advertised) things are about to get crazy. the Fantastic Four aren't returning in 4 minutes. and now every one of their foes is going to spring out of the woodwork; looking to loot the Baxter Building and make a name for themselves. you don't have to like the book. but i think "hitting the ground running" would have been a mistake with characters such as these.

    I think it would have worked a bit better if the interview portions had been scattered across multiple issues. Really do it the way The Office or Parks & Recreation does it. That way we don't get introduced to everyone at once and we can start to have things actually happen in the comic.

    She-Hulk was actually the only issue I had with the art. I thought her upper body was WAY too muscular, like a 'roided out body builder. Other than that, Allred's art was definitely the highlight of #1 for me.

    I'm not caught up on Hickman's run, but I do plan to get caught up on it after the digiital prices drop (especially for #600, I'm not paying $8, that's lunacy) should I wait until I'm caught up or just start FF 1? Is there much in the way of spoilers other than Johnny being alive and well again?

    Hickman is recruiting the team in issue 2.

    I hate to do this but I thought it was garbage. That's the best I can do at the moment.

    She may be from a little earlier in her life, but otherwise she's the 616 Nita. It's not like she had an entire different history (personal and/or universe) like Nightcrawler (he's the AOA Nightcrawler, I think? I didn't read Claw Force).

    Never cared for some of his human faces but Allred's art has a charm to it I can usually enjoy.

    Honest, I enjoyed this issue, it showed me that Fraction wouldn't be abandoning some of the characters I liked in the previous FF book and he knew the history of some of the characters. The only down side I have is that I dislike the recent Scott Lang as Ant-Man push and the fact that he looks to be a major character of the book. I actually enjoyed it more then Fractions Fantastic Four #1.

    Surprised and pleased to say that I really enjoyed this! I was dubious after being underwhelmed by Fantastic Four #1, but this clicked for me much better, and has made me more optimistic about Fraction helming the franchise. Feels like an intro issue, yes, but it's reasonable to spend a #1 issue on introductions for a cast as large as this, and it doubles as a demo that he's got characterisations in mind for all the kids, so it was still interesting as a returning reader.

    Allred's art can be variable for me (sometimes I really love it, sometimes it comes off a bit too simplified like in some of the FF covers we've seen) but here it mostly comes down in the love column. Now I'm a bit sad he's not going to be handling the classic F4 more, since I really like his version of Reed.

    Almost as if she were...Oh,I don't know...A Hulk, maybe? I enjoyed it and thought ALlred's She Hulk was the best part. Although I am surely biased.
