Y'know, I've never read any of the Franklin one-shots.
Great (if self-conciously derivative) cartooning but it's JUST ONE JOKE over and over and over and over and over and over again.
I did read some of the MA books, but the Fantastic Four ones did not read well. They seemed very forced, and the characters were written like...not the characters.
Shame. Though I know Jeff Parker wrote a few of them, so perhaps you just have to cherry-pick. Then again, the impression I've got is that MA:FF was about retelling old stories, while the approach of MA:Spider-Man is more, "PETER NOW HAS AN INDIAN GIRLFRIEND WHO CAN TALK TO OWLS AND PUGS, AND EVERYONE WORKS FOR THE BLONDE PHANTOM DETECTIVE AGENCY, AND COS WE'RE NOT IN CONTINUITY THEN THE BORING FANBOYS CAN'T SAY s**t. HA!"
Anyone got any ideas for what'd be a nice light'n'breezy FF read to balance out the Hickmania?
