That was back in the days when I had a higher disposable income and was in thrall to FF completism. Since then I have rid myself of Byrne and JMS FF and am a student who watches every penny. Budget wise, dropping FF after the last McDuffie issue suits me.
Can't stand Millar as a writer. I think Hitch is very poor these days. His pencils lack life and energy. Very stiff, little movement.
Nothing in that preview entices me. I don't like the art, story feels decompressed and the characters are off. And does anyone honestly expect a Hitch comic to come out on time? Piffle.
When I next need my FF fix, the Simonsons volume shall be procured.

Spiderman is getting back to being like Wolverine with turning up all over the place & them his own titles [many of the other titles Spidey shows up in also feature Wolverine on the team]. We've had lots of Spidey ongoing cancelled again. We've still got amazing & adventures Spiderman. but Peter Parker, Web, Spiderman, have all gone.
So the FF are back. I picked up #1 but for a $6 issue (yes, really)...no. My thoughts echo that of the Impossible Man on the humour page at the back. I shall wait and see if Paninivision cover it at a later date.
Seriously, what were Marvel thinking when they had the idea for a six dollar first issue? Could at least have chucked in a card cover for that price!
