    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 31, 2013

    I am in love with this series. It has just about everything you could want. Matt Fraction richly blends humor, drama, action and suspense while discretely sprinkling a dark aspect to the book. Mike and Laura Allred's art and color are a sight to be seen. Each page and panel is so vibrant and full of life. You can't help but smile as you read the story. Each issue contains an unpredictable nature but it never feels forced. We're not seeing wacky and zany elements thrown in just to be goofy. It all just works in a grand fashion. Every time I read an issue with Fraction and the Allreds, I feel compelled to stand up and clap my hands. Read Full Review

    This has been mentioned before, but sometimes it feels like this book isnt getting enough buzz. It really should be. This is a series thats easily in the top 5 from any publisher. Its truly an honor to review it every month. Read Full Review

    As Fraction meta-comments in the story, FF isn't going to be a title for everyone. But if you enjoy quirky comic books, this is one of the best I've encountered. It drives the story by being strange rather than doing it for strangeness's sake. This book gets my highest possible recommendation, with this issue being a good jumping-on point. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Aug 5, 2013

    As the book describes itself within it's own pages, it's "FF-y" " weird, clever and unlike any other superhero team comic on the stands. FF #10 is no different, and if anything, amps up the oddity. Read Full Review

    Another fun and charmingly weird issue, from a fun and charmingly weird book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Aug 2, 2013

    "FF" #10 is another winner of a comic from Fraction and Allred. I've come to regard this as of late as the true Fantastic Four comic; this collection of substitute heroes and the kids they're sworn to protect has such charm and inventiveness that I'd read dozens of issues about them so long as Fraction and Allred were behind it. If you haven't been reading "FF" up until now, this is a good place to begin. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - James Cassara Aug 3, 2013

    In that regards FF may just be the comic book equivalent of David Lynch's Twin Peaks: it often seems weird for weird sake. But I stuck with Twin Peaks to the bitter end, so, despite my reservations, as long as Fraction and Allred are on board I feel inclined to do the same here. Still, a bit of normalcy (as normal as any comic about super powered beings can be) would go a long way. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Aug 5, 2013

    Even though the book stumbles in one of its plotlines and create one or two problems of its own in the use of certain characters, it is nonetheless still a fun and engaging ride with its characters, charm and wonderfully apt art and colorization. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jul 31, 2013

    Weird creative choices aside, the issue at least looks fantastic. The bright pop sensibilities of Michael and Laura Allred are on full display, giving a vivid energy to a brief battle with a micro-tiger. The characters look great, as usual. FF #10 is big, bold, and beautiful. It's easy to get lost in this artwork, even when the story falls flat. Hopefully, Fraction and Allred won't be characters in upcoming issues so FF can get back to being the book we have loved so much in the past. Read Full Review

    Overall, this a fun little issue which entertains, whilst also progressing the Doctor Doom subplot introduced earlier in this title. And just when you thought that this issue was about to end straightforwardly, Fraction drops his surprise revelation on the final page " something which the comic version of him was saying in great length that all good comics need.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 3, 2013

    So FF tries to be meta in this issue, in that Matt Fraction, Mike Allred and Marvel editor Tom Brevoort all appear in this issue as themselves. It's"I don't care for this stunt. It worked well, once, when Grant Morrison made it the big climax of his Animal Man comic. But there's no reason for this kind of story to come out of nowhere in the pages of FF. It doesn't work. It makes no sense. It's not very funny. I don't know why Fraction would do it. Did he lose a bet? Is this a big, colossal in-joke with his pals? I don't know, but it brings an otherwise OK story down even further. Read Full Review
