Comic of the Week (2/23/11) – Fantastic Four #588

By Vince

If you haven’t read Issue 587 yet, there’s some serious spoilers here. This issue picks up directly where the previous one left off, with one of the Fantastic Four dead. This issue focuses on how the rest of the family deals with the loss, as well as setting the story on the oath to the future. The “Three” storyline opened a lot of doors, and the remainder of the Four are going to have their hands full closing them. Most impressively, this great story is told without a single line of dialog. Nick Dragotta, a relative unknown, steps in and delivers some of the best pencils I’ve ever seen. Emotional, groundbreaking and impactful, Fantastic Four #588 will definitely be a serious contender for best issue of the year.
