Fantastic Four #644

   Sorry for the scarce posting this week - I'm running behind (work has been crazy lately), so let's get caught up with some quick reviews, and hopefully we'll be back to normal soon.

   Here we are at the next-to-the-last issue of Fantastic Four (yeah right), and the sad thing is: for the first time in about a year-and-a-half, it's starting to feel like an issue of the Fantastic Four.

   The team has finally (apparently) unmasked the villain behind their near-destruction, and they've joined forces with an army of allies and friends to fight back against a global invasion.

   It's all a bit manic, and the art by Leonard Kirk and Karl Kesel is excellent as always, but it feels like it's all coming together far too late - the members of the team have been dragged through the mud, and they're just now finally sorta getting back control of their lives.

   This should be Marvel's best comic, and instead it faces (apparent, yeah, right) cancellation.

   It's a crime.

Grade: B
