Why I Love Comics: Fantastic Four, Volume 3 #60: Inside Out

If you've spent more than a day reading the Entertained Organizer, you know I love comic books. This is one of the many reasons why.

Fantastic Four, Volume 3, #60 was written by Mark Waid with art by Mike Wieringo.  It came out in October, 2002, shortly after I got back into comics and with a cover price of 9 cents it was hard to resist.  It was meant to lure in new readers and introduce them to Marvel's First Family through the eyes of their new publicist.  Throughout the issue Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic himself, keeps pushing to make the team bigger celebrities in pretty much exactly the way you'd expect a guy who calls himself "Mr. Fantastic" would.  And then the publicist leaves and Reed is left alone with his daughter:

And that is Why I Love Comics.

    woah...intense. seems like an excellent story though. I've never seen that side of Reed Richards (to be fair, I've never read FF)...they kinda touched on that in the movies
