Fantastic Four: Full Circle

Abrams ComicArts. Sept. 2022. 64p. ISBN 9781419761676. $24.99. GRAPHIC NOVELS
With this epic adventure, acclaimed creator Ross (Marvels X) presents his first long-form graphic novel as both writer and artist. After surviving an attack by a fearsome swarm of parasitic creatures, the Fantastic Four are compelled to travel into the treacherous anti-matter universe known as the Negative Zone in search of answers as to which of their enemies has targeted them for death. Best known as a cover artist and designer, Ross quickly proves himself an immensely skilled visual storyteller as Marvel’s first family traverses a range of uniquely nightmarish settings and engages in powerfully dynamic action sequences. The playful banter between characters emphasizes the team’s distinct family dynamic, evoking the spirit of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s classic run on the title in the 1960s.
VERDICT Ross’s style combines tight linework and painted illustration in a color palette heavy on fluorescent shades of purple and green, warm shades of orange, and eerie blue, resulting in a distinctive pop art masterpiece that must be seen to be believed.
