Review: Ultimate Fantastic Four, Vol. 6: Frightful

Ultimate Fantastic Four, Vol. 6: Frightful
Ultimate Fantastic Four, Vol. 6: Frightful by Mark Millar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Possibly one of the best F4 stories I have read to date. I am not exactly a fan of using zombies in a story, but it actually worked out rather well in this instance. Aside from that, the interaction between Reed & Victor was well worth the read, and I find myself actually looking forward to hopefully reading about Victor’s presumed mission to clean up the zombie world and finding his way back to the prime universe. This is Dr. Doom after all so you know he has to come back to continue his perennial habit of making Reed’s life a royal pain.

Review: Runaways, Vol. 8: Dead End Kids

Runaways, Vol. 8: Dead End Kids
Runaways, Vol. 8: Dead End Kids by Joss Whedon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yep, Joss did it again. He took a story that was actually pretty good and kicked it up a couple of levels. Probably one of the best time travel stories I have read in some time, and he did a great job circling back to the beginning with it. Can’t really say more than that. If you like Joss Whedon’s work you will enjoy this volume. I only wish he manned the helm for this series for more than just this story arc and volume.

Review: Time Masters

Time Masters
Time Masters by Lewis Shiner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I originally read part of this series years ago when they were originally published, but I lost track and was never able to acquire the remaining books in the series. Seeing this collection presented me with a nice opportunity to take a trip down memory lane and finally finish a story I wanted to finish years ago.

The story itself is very much a product of its era, and reads like a story from the 80’s. A bit progressive in some ways, but very much a stereotypical story from that era. The writing presents a plot line that is more complex than many stories from that era, and while woefully out of date today still presents an interesting read. Well worth the read if you have enjoyed seeing Rip Hunter in the recent runs of Booster Gold and wanted to learn more about who he is and where he comes from.
