Review:  ★★★★

The Fantastic Four are finally reunited! Well, sort of.  Ben, Johnny, and Rachna Koul have traveled across the multi-sect to a “Doom-Universe”. In this reality Galactus defeated the Fantastic Four and Doom became Galactus and ate the universe. It sounds very “Doom-like”. The remaining Fantastic Four members join together in a weird moment. The book has some interesting interactions with this universe’s Shield. It’s actually a really cool concept. Zdarsky also happens to throw the “real” Doom into the mix to make him interactive to the plot. Schiti’s artwork is really solid, especially how he illustrates some uses of Mr. Fantastic. This is cool and gives us the feel about how might be once the Fantastic Four is returned to the funny pages. Of course The Thing and The Human Torch still have to cross time and space to save the rest of the four, but we’re loving the journey.
