Ultimate X-Men/Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual #1
Writer: Aron E. Coleite & Joe Pokaski
Penciler: Dan Panosian & Mark Brooks
Inker: Danny Miki & Troy Hubbs
This is an intriguing annual with two sets of writers and two sets of artists.
I get the sense that the half featuring the future X-Men, is by Aron Coleite and Mark Brooks (for the most part). And frankly, that half is by far superior to the rest of the book — the future versions of the X-Men are very cool and even feature a nice twist.
Unfortunately, the other half featuring the Fantastic Four (ostensibly by Joe Polaski and Dan Panosian) is way too cute for my likings — adorable teenagers reminiscent of the Scooby gang.
Jinkies, Wolverine, I can’t find my glasses!
