Continuing my list of 90’s books, here’s The New Fantastic Four: Monsters Unleashed from 1991. Ironic that this book showed up in the mail for me the same week as the new Monsters Unleashed started at Marvel.

This one was actually quite good. A Skrull named DeLila comes to Earth and makes it look like the Fantastic Four are dead. She takes the form of Sue and recruits Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wolverine and Ghost Rider to find the FF’s killer. Of course she’s got ulterior motives.

This books spans three issues and in it we get to see more of the Skrull, the Mole Man and some mighty big monsters. Adams’ artwork is really great. And the writing is… mostly good. Some of the jokey writing falls a bit flat. But the story works out well.

I liked this one quite a bit. I didn’t read it as a kid, but it’s one that I would have loved back then I’m sure.
