Fantastic Four Vs. Furies of Calderon

July 16th, 2007 by Laura Moncur in Literature

This week on Unshelved, they talk about the similarities between The Fantastic Four and Furies of Calderon. You can see the comic here:

Fantastic Four (2005) at Amazon.comThe first Fantastic Four movie came out in 2005 and they have gotten the same cast for the second movie, Rise of the Silver Surfer. If you enjoyed these movies then you might enjoy elements of many other illustrated novels and fictional series.

Furies of Calderon at Amazon.comOne that you might find interesting is Furies of Calderon, the first in a series of fantasy novels about defeating the incoming armies with magical forces that depend on the four elements. Just like the Fantastic Four were fire, water, earth and air, the people of Alera use these elements to protect themselves from Quintus Sextus’ armies.

If you liked the Fantastic Four movies, you might find yourself enthralled with the series of books that Jim Butcher has created, starting with Furies of Calderon.
