Fantastic Four and Power Pack #3

Fantastic Four and Power Pack #3 (Marvel Comics)
By Fred Van Lente & Gurihiru

Last issue, Dr. Doom sent Kraven the Hunter to kidnap Franklin Richards. What he got instead was not just Franklin, but half of Power Pack. As Alex and Julie prepare to rescue their missing siblings, the Fantastic Four mobilizes to find Franklin. Van Lente has really succeeded in capturing the playful, old-school tone for this series established by Marc Sumerak. While this series is definitely written for a younger reader than a typical Marvel comic, it isn’t writing down to them, and that makes a crucial difference. The way it’s played off, you can accept the kids holding their own against Dr. Doom — at least until he puts his true plan into action. We get a nice cliffhanger, great Gurihiru art — in short, this is a great showcase for the Power Pack gang.
