FF Road TripThe Fantastic Four has seen many battles in their lives, especially the recent big one. The family has earned a much-needed break from the superhero gig, so Reed plans an old-fashioned family vacation to the Grand Canyon for some good rest, intermission, and quality bonding time.

Unfortunately, Reed’s super brain won’t allow him to take a breather, and the particular experiment that Reed brings with him causes his family to experience a frightening side effect. With everyone’s bodies undergoing a drastic change on a cellular level, a race commences to decipher their lethal exposure. It’s all the worse, because they are stuck in a remote Arizona cabin where there is no help for miles.

Fantastic Four: Road Trip #1 is a comicbook you should pick up. Christopher Cantwell does a great job maintaining an atmosphere of uncertainty. While the storyline kept me hooked from page to page, the visuals of the characters going through the ordeal gave me chills as I was reading. Filipe Andrade’s  specific art style captures a sense of urgency and despair. Moreover, Chris O’Halloran and VC’s Joe Caramagna both did fantastic work with coloring and lettering, respectively. If you’re into reads like Invincible and The Walking Dead, just imagine those two worlds colliding in this stellar issue.
