On this week’s episode of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!, we have writer Mark Russell on to talk about Fantastic Four Life Story #1, which hit the shelves last week.
Following in the footsteps of Spider-Man Life Story from 2019, Fantastic Four Life Story gives us a new look at the history of Marvel’s First Family, but told by the decades with the characters aging in real time. Joined by artist Sean Izaakse (Fantastic Four), issue one takes a look at the origins of the FF in the 1960s.
Mark discusses the origins of this project, as well as the challenges of representing 60 years of comics in just six issues. We also run down Mark’s other ongoing books, including a new horror book coming out from Vault Comics later this year.
We are in the final days of taking recommendations for our summer reading project. For 2021, we want to read three mini-series of 4-6 issues in length. We want to read one from Marvel, one from DC, and one from any other publisher. Our request is that the issues or collection is readily available so we can read it and have others join in on the fun. Please get your suggestions to us by May 28.
We also review our Pick 3 selections, sponsored by our friends at Clint’s Comics. As always, stop by your local comic shop and pick up your books!
