Got Fantastic Four #500 today. Good issue, wraps the storyline up nicely, but still not the knock-down drag-out Reed/Doom fight from Walt Simonson's Fantastic Four #352. That being said, Mark Waid does give Reed a sharper focus and a more developed personality than any FF writer since Stan Lee.

It's a pretty good book, which may explain why Marvel is going to shitcan it. Congrats Marvel, once Waid's gone, the only Marvel comics I'll be getting are Stan and Jack reprints. At least they knew that the whole superhero thing wasn't supposed to be serious to begin with, and used that freedom to write good stories.
