comics read: FF and Young Avengers

New comic:
FF #16 – Fraction/Allred, Allred
This felt really talky, and the main part of the comic was almost solely Scott and Doom, which seemed so weird, since from the very beginning this has been a comic so much about not just the team but the whole extended family, and they were mostly complete absent. I don’t think any of the other FF members even got any lines until the epilogue. And I’m pretty sure I only needed like half that Scott-Doom speechifying anyway.

I did like the epilogue, though, especially when mushed with the epilogue from Fantastic Four #16. Moloids and real actual Scott/Darla and the Jen and awww.

Old comics:
FF #10 – Fraction, Allred
HA, I’d forgotten this was the meta issue. So now I can nominate Matt Fraction as a fictional character, yis? :D Otherwise: cute as always, and now I’ve finally met Maximus the Mad, who I encountered in later issues and couldn’t place. And the tour of microspace was fun (although it maybe would have been nice to had that under my belt when I wrote that Yuletide fic, oh well).

Young Avengers #8 – Gillen, McKelvie
Alternate universes are totally my jam, so I really enjoyed this (and now that one Yuletide fic I read makes so much more sense!). However, I am fairly :\ about Prodigy up and kissing someone he knows is in a steady relationship already. That’s not kosher.

Yeah, Scott punching Doom went on FOREVER and was kind of awkward to watch. Also everyone else got so little panel time, sad! But the end was really cute.

Oh man, I loved #10. It's so hilarious, and the microtiger is like my favorite thing. :P (Also, I liked your Yuletide fic a lot.)

Ooh, I'm so excited the new YA is up. Is it coming out twice a month on Unlimited?

I don't know about twice a month, but it does seem to be on an accelerated schedule, which makes sense since I think YA was also shipping on an accelerated schedule towards the end. I'm excited, though, because my subscription picked up at #11, so as soon as I get there I can read the rest of the run. :)
