I'll be sad to see this run end. This run was a really strong entry in the saga of Marvel's First Family.

When I finish this volume, I'll have read just about anything ever published for the Fantastic Four. Marvel really needs to stop being such asshats and start putting out more FF comics and merchandise again: the wretched recent movies shouldn't be the impression that people are left with when thinking about. these characters that FOUNDED the modern Marvel Universe.

The end of the Marvel Knights series, just before Civil War started. This one featured the Salem Seven, who were some of the first foes I remember reading in my earliest days of reading Fantastic Four. Ooh, and Diablo, who is an alchemist, which is the class of one of my current Pathfinder characters!

I miss the Fantastic Four.

This was kind of a weird collection. The first half was an ongoing story and the second half was random one shot shorts. Some were good, some ok, none bad. Really enjoyed the artwork, which is why it got four stars from me.

I thought Roberto Aguire-Sacasa did a lot of interesting things on this title and this trade wraps up the series. Here, he has the Fantastic Four battle a host of magical villains and I really enjoyed the tale but is was wrapped up much too quickly. Maybe that was due to the book ending but the outcome was too easy to come by. The other one shots in the book cleaned up other storylines for Civil War and other stories. The most fulfilling part of this collection was one in which Reed and Sue had ...more

I was somewhat underwhelmed by this collection of Fantastic Four stories.
Three issues included here deal with the "Nicholas Scratch" story line, while the rest are stand-alone tales. The Scratch arc was okay, but never really grabbed me. I am usually not a fan of Aguirre-Sacasa's writing, as I think he tries too hard to emphasize drama and weighty themes, at the expense of humor and action. But the exception to that rule is the excellent story here showing Reed and Sue dealing with personal, hu

Nel finale la serie si risolleva, come storie. I disegni non vanno mai oltre la sufficienza.
Nel complesso Marvel Knights 4 è stato un esperimento fallito, un modo per cercare di esplorare nuove vie della prima famiglia Marvel che però non ha fatto altro che ripescare e ripetere vecchie idee, quasi sempre peggio delle trovate originali.
Certo, magari tra altri dieci anni rileggerò le storie e ci ripenserò, ma ne dubito.

A great volume, with non-linear plotting and interesting character studies. Definitely more than your average four-color book.

Aguirre-Sacasa really put his heart in these last stories in the Marvel Knights 4-series. Best ones there were in the series too short run.
Good stuff.
