    Maaan… why is Reed Richards no rough-and-tumble scientist-beefcake on this cover?

    Cassaday sucks.

    CASSADAY DOES NOT SUCK!! Rough-and-tumble scientist-beefcake Reed Richards does suck, but he is not so much like that in this cover.

    We may not have rough-and-tumble scientist Reed, but we do have amorphous-blob Thing.

    Teeheehee… relax, DrNerdo.

    I like John Cassaday, his work on Astonishing X-men was awesome.

    This cover is meh but the only FF I’ve ever read minus the big crossovers was UFF through issue 30-something.

    BUT I’m like campaigner. JC was all sorts of awesome on Astonishing X-Men.

    Waaaay better than the other one. This has a very cool style. Almost Quitely-esque.

    No, this isn’t “Quitely-esque” (unless you count the hatchet job on the Thing: He’s made of rock, not jello), because I actually find it a fairly decent bit of artwork. No, that’s not “Quitely sucks”. It’s “my tastes don’t like his art and my tastes like this, so I gotta say there’s little resemblance”. :)

    I do not like these faces…Sue looks like White Queen and the thing looks Hulk-ish…and do not get me started on Reed. Everything else design-wise i can take or leave, the art itself though is pretty good.

    Wow…who knew a couple of Fantastic Four covers would incite so many passionate comments?

    I wouldn’t say thing looks Hulkish, necessarily. I think he looks more like a smaller, rockier version of the Insectasaurus from Monsters vs. Aliens.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
