This Comic Is Good - Fred Hembeck's Fantastic Four

A certain thing lacking a bit from comics these days is a certain aspect of fun.

You know, just good natured fun.

That's why I figured I would scrounge up Fred Hembeck's 1982 Fantastic Four roast, designed to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Fantastic Four.

This book had pretty much every notable (and some less than notable) character in the Marvel universe, drawn by some of the biggest talents at Marvel comics at the time, from A (Brent Anderson) to Z (Mike Zeck). Oh, and also John Byrne, Frank Miller, John Buscema, Walt Simonson, Dave Cockrum, Sal Buscema, Michael Golden, Bill Sienkiewicz, John Romita Jr., Ron Wilson, Gene Day, Kerry Gammill, Mike Vosburg, Alan Weiss, Bob Layton, Jim Mooney, Dave Simons, Keith Pollard and Al Milgrom (I don't believe I missed anyone).

The jokes are not the greatest, but the book wins you over with the congeniality of the humor. That really has been Fred Hembeck's trademark over the years, and I, for one, really enjoy it.

Mocking everyone without offending anyone...the perfect roast.

Anyone else ever pick this book up?
