The Plot Thickens or I Hope There Is A Plot

Susan Storm wakes up naked in Prince Namor’s bed. I admit, it is a great start to the third book in an arc of four, but I am beginning to wonder what is going on. I was so upset when they changed artists right in the middle of an arc. I loved Tyler Kirkham’s work on the first two issues of this arc. WHY DID THEY CHANGE?

We now have Eric Basaldua doing the pencils. And, this art is good, but it is not the same. His art is a bit darker… heavier on the pencils. Still nice art work, but I would have liked to see the same artist finish up the arc. I left a star off this rating because of the artist change.

Mike Carey continues the third book with two flirtations... one between Johnny Storm and Col. Harkness, and the other between Prince Namor and Susan Storm. Looks like the Storms are producing some steamy situations. Reed is upset about Sue’s noncommittal attitude, and Col Harkness is up to something. The green goo think panels are following her around, getting ready to grow exponentially.

This was a good book, and I enjoyed, but I found myself wondering a lot of things. How does Col. Harkness fit in with the green goo? It was the green goo that destroyed Atlantis as Namor revealed to Sue. What does Harkness want with Johnny? And it appears that Harkness is an evolved green goo turning into The Seven.

OK, I am in as I have read three of these books, and the forth is the conclusion. I can’t wait to check it out. Also, this is the third cover of the four covers that make up the panoramic view of the Fantastic Four.
