Fantastic Four: A Death in the Family- A Rant!
From what the preview said, I thought this issue fit into current continuity. I even thought that it might tie in to Civil War. What an idiot I am!!!
FF: Death is a new story and a reprint of Fantastic Four #245, so it isn't even all new. That just makes me feel dumber. Great.
In FF: Death, Johnny makes an error that costs Sue her life. He decides to try and fix what he did. Okay, that is really fricking original... not. The art by Lee Weeks was old school, which was cool, and the story by Karl Kesel was even kinda poignant.
The problem is that I was duped by false advertising, and didn't even get all new stuff for my $3.99. I am pissed about this!
Bottom Line: I want to alert you that this story isn't what you may think. It is okay, but not earth shattering. Don't go buy it thinking that it fits into the current storyline. Don't be misled.
