They were the best of friends since that fateful trip into the cosmic unknown. The day the Fantastic Four were born, they became a family. Cosmic explorers - forever united. Johnny Storm became the high-flying, hot-headed Human Torch. Ben Grimm, the hideous monster known as The Thing.
Super-Scientist Reed Richards has tried time and again to reverse Grimm's condition. Each and every time was met with failure. But there was a time when he possessed a device that held the key to permanently curing The Thing - until Johnny inadvertently destroyed it! Reed has kept Johnny's secret for as long as he could - but now it's about to get out!
What will Ben do when he discovers that one of his closest friends and steadfast ally condemned him to a life sentence as a monster? It won't be pretty. The fall of the first family continues as the Original Sin of the Fantastic Four is revealed!

    All in all this was a really good issue. It still continues what happened in the previous story arc that readers of the Fantastic Four won't be upset that the story was pushed aside for a tie-in to Original Sin. I highly suggest buying Fantastic Four #6 along with the next issue just to see how exactly Johnny screwed up Ben's chances at being human. Read Full Review

    FANTASTIC FOUR #6 is a prime example of how to continue an on-going story line while also tying into the big event. This series has been an incredible amount of fun that embraces the history of FF, instead of pushing it off to the side. Normally, I'm not a fan of this team, but Robinson's run is a lot of fun and a great overall read. In addition, the way it works with Original Sin is very cool and I cannot wait to see everything about what happened to Ben in the next issue. Overall, I highly recommend this series.

    The main appeal with this issue is in seeing Leonard Kirk's somber, moody visuals transition to Dean Haspiel's Silver Age throwback style. At least we can expect more of that as this arc progresses. Read Full Review

    The Fantastic Four continues its narrative of "everything is falling apart!", which is usually the kind of story I'm a sucker for. But for some reason, this particular example of it fails to grab me, in part because it feels entirely arbitrary and not allowed to develop with a more natural momentum. The Four seem complete victims of some meta-narrative that has yet to offer readers any buy-in to care for what happens, which in turn leaves the art scrambling to appear visually interesting.
