Fantastic Four 220

When you want your comics straight with no chaser

There's a plot arrangement in this story which shows what each member of the Fantastic Four is doing during a massive blackout. I love the way this structure "braces" the story - it makes the story simple to understand yet not simplistic.

Later on John Byrne will regale us with how much detail he can give the panel, but not here. Here, his panels are large and spare, a little like his Next Men work but better. The art fits the straightforward storytelling very well.

This story is the first part of a two-issue story arc.
