About this deal

The previous omnibus collection of Jonathan Hickman’s work ended rather disappointingly with multiple plot threads still in play, and these aren’t addressed immediately, but when he does conclude them it’s a spectacular sequence occupying the middle third of the book.

This began to change in the '90s and 2000s, at which point the average reader could easily get lost trying to keep up with the hundreds of interconnections and shared plots among the dozens of series published by Marvel Comics. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Reed Richards tries to solve everything, which leads him to join a bunch of Reed Richards's from other universes who banded together to solve everything. Hickman plays the long game, so it's neat to see seeds he plants early in the series, knowing that they blossom later on.I admit, the one glaring issue the book has is some of the Nu World material is lost on me, as I never read the original arc. This is my nth time reading this run and I still freaking love it, one of the finest marvel comics ever. Hickman takes plots that would happen in the Stan and Jack run and makes them modern, serious and attractive to a contemporary reader. One of the greatest comics period, the way it all bends so seamlessly and all the plots come together so well, existing concepts are used in such a brilliant manner and then each character gets their own spotlight and moment that makes you love them even more and the inter-play between them and finally the big thing to come, its just perfect plus it has a murderer's row of artist, each one soo perfect and makes this book so visually striking to look at, just wow!

For, as the big brain of the Fantastic Four will find out, solving everything carries with it a great cost, and one that is perhaps too much to pay.Without getting into spoilers, it's impossible to deny Hickman has a way of world building through mystery and abstract high brow science fiction concepts. In classic Hickman fashion, there's a question at the heart of this story: how can Reed solve everything? The primary issue I have with the material in this book was likely beyond Hickman's control: it collects not a sequential set of issues of The Fantastic Four series but rather a bunch of Fantastic Four stories culled from a handful of different series and miniseries. But i have to get one thing out of the way, the quality of this book, and by that i mean the paper quality is abysmal, this is no way to treat fans of the Marvel omnibus, that is supposedly the best of there line. If you pay any kind of attention at all to comic books, then you probably heard the news around early 2011 or so that a founding member of the FF was going to die.

Near Fine/Near Fine 1st impression 1st ed 2014 Marvel hardback omnibus, unclipped DJ, high quality edition. With regards to the story, there are parts in this which made me well up a bit, ha ha, now for me that means i'm lost in the book so it means my complete imagination is all encompassed into their world and the storyline, which is rare for me when reading a story. The webs that are about to be woven will take you to places you've never been…pit our spectacular heroes against classic villains reloaded, as well as brand-new foes…and make you rethink the whole concept of Spider-Man!

Not so for the kids, Franklin and Valeria, as they are made integral to the story right from the beginning and through all three series collected. I love his art but this is the fifth omnibus in a row I've gotten that he contributed on, between the Avengers: The Gathering and Ed Brubaker Captain America Omnis. Some truly wonderful sci-fi storytelling that explores really big ideas without losing focus on character. The look of these series comes from an incredible, you could say to an inconsistent degree, number of artists ranging from fantastic to just passable.
