About this book
In New York, it's springtime - and business as usual for the FF, as they celebrate Franklin's team making it to the Little League playoffs. But around the globe, the very fabric of time is unraveling. Minutes are vanishing from days, and objects from the past are materializing in the present. When these chronal anomalies start multiplying like a virus, Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny decide to slip into the timestream to investigate. For seasoned adventurers like the FF, it should be a walk in the park, right? Guess again. Plus: It's good news all around - and not just for the FF, who have reclaimed their status as New York's premier super-hero team, but for their friend and ally, Alicia Masters. After a lifetime of darkness, the blind sculptress's eyesight has been restored by her father, Philip Masters - the seemingly reformed villain Puppet Master - but at what cost? Either all is as it seems... or darker forces are at work. Collects Marvel Knights 4 #13-18.
This volume should have been called "Daddy Issues" as both stories included here deal with problems characters have with their fathers. Having said that,these stories are both good but they lack the good sense of humor I prefer in my Fantastic Four tales. Family relationships and the resulting angst are the main focus here. The more serious tone is aided by excellent art and good pacing, but darn it folks, lighten up a bit.
A couple of good stories. The puppet master story really shows him in an intense & scary light. The time travel story is just good big-screen fun.
