Default Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four, S.H.I.E.L.D. & FF

From Comics Alliance:
Fantastic Four #570: Solving Everything [Annotations]

In other words, it's a perfect choice for the annotation treatment. So welcome to a new ongoing joint here at ComicsAlliance: The annotations of Jonathan Hickman's superb run on Fantastic Four.

To follow along, I highly recommend grabbing the first trade of the run - there will be slight spoilers of later stories for the purpose of drawing connections, but we'll try not to ruin anything too dramatic. However, unlike with the Bat-mythos, I'm not anywhere near as familiar with the extended history of this franchise, so I've brought in Funnybook Babylon's inimitable Chris Eckert as a co-annotator for the historical perspective while I'll continue to try to deconstruct Hickman's narrative.

This time around, we're taking a look at the second two parts of the opening "Solve Everything" arc, issues 571 and 572 with art by Dale Eaglesham, collected in this trade. Joining me again to provide historical background on a lot of this stuff is Chris Eckert from Funnybook Babylon. In these two issues, we'll see talking Celestials, lobotomized Dooms, the fall of the Council and learn that the cost of solving everything... is everything.

The reason why some fans come down on Batman 89 so hard since the Nolan films have been released is 2 fold: the Nolan films are newer and fans of the actual books don't read the 70's and 80's source material that the 89 film was based upon to understand how much more pure the 89 film is compared to the modern crime-drama trilogy that Nolan created.
