Fantastic Four #601

Huh. I'm kind of surprised no one's posted this yet. I know someone posted the preview page, but here's what's going on around the view in the sky. This was the second best moment in the book. But since I'm out of pages since this is the latest issue, go and pick it up. It's so worth it. Especially when you see Cap's face when he realizes the scope of what just happened. In any case, I picked the personal moment, because I've been waiting for this moment ever since the book went to its FF status. And it was worth the wait.

His Excalibur run was excellent IMHO.

Er...no he didn't. The Thunderbolts during "Dark Reign" were a team of nondescripts written into dull adventures by (I think) Jason Aaron. Ellis' Thunderbolts were run by Osborn, yes, but only while he was director of the Thunderbolts alone, answerable to Tony Stark and SHIELD. In fact, Brian Bendis got te very idea of Dark Reign FROM Ellis' politically-charged social-behaviour-experiment Thunderbolts stories.

Apart from NEXTwave, Ellis' run on the T-Bolts remains my favourite of his Marvel work, and certainly some of the best comics Marvel has published. For one thing, having Venom, Penance and Bullseye on the team, along with the numerous crosses, double-crosses, and political allegories, made it the only time I was actually interested in the Thunderbolts...

His work on Doom 2099 looked pretty good from what I saw of it.
