Maybe Mister Fantastic just has a LOT of anxiety...

Fantastic Four: Life Story #1
Mark Russell dives into a new edition of "what if super heroes aged in real time in a real world." This time, we're focused on the Fantastic Four, as our team comes together to get their powers in a world full of JFK, civil rights protests and space races. All in all, it was a bit slow, seeing as how the FF's origin has been done to death, but seeing them framed in the real world was interesting enough. Also, I feel like Russell gave one of the best explanations to why Mister Fantastic is often such a jerk, giving him a certain level of anxiety or frustration toward what he perceives as a chaotic universe.
Red Room #1
If you're a fan of slasher flicks, particularly the very-very-extra type, this book might be for you. Full of over the top kills, unapologetic grossness and general depravity, this book is Ed Piskor's attempt to tell a compelling and unique horror story by using the internet as the boogie man. It's definitely NOT for everyone and certainly not for the easily offended, but it's a definite experience from start to finish.
