    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Sep 25, 2013

    Who would have thought reading a superhero comic could be so much fun? While this is a serious book with Scott Lang trying to deal with the death of his daughter and his hatred for Doom, there are still so many opportunities for humor to jump out at you. With Lee Allred taking over from Matt Fraction's notes, he clearly makes a great addition to the team of Mike and Laura Allred. I can't get enough of this book. There are so many characters in this title yet they all get just the right amount of "screen time" to make you appreciate each and every one of them. We need more comics like FF. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 25, 2013

    This issue as a whole is an eclectic blend of random asides like that and more focused drama. A lot of books would suffer some sort of tonal imbalance as a result, but again, it plays right into the nature of FF. It's great to see the creators emphasize humor and the younger characters and their antics even as they maneuver the adults into the confrontation that's been building for the past year. The only downside is that the growing sense of finality suggests that the Fraction/Allred saga really is going to end soon, even as this issue once again reinforces how vital FF is to Marvel's lineup.

    FF #12 delivers on the heart, charm and intrigue that it has provided thus far. FF is the most consistently enjoyable and gleeful pleasure on the stands each month. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Sep 30, 2013

    Even though Fraction is gone, the fun still goes on in this title as Lee, Mike and Laura Allred give it their best shot to provide development and silliness in this issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Derek Baker Sep 26, 2013

    It looks like FF is going to be just fine. With so many Allreds on the creative team, it looks like smooth sailing. Fantastic Four is still worrisome though. Well have to see how both books play out through issues #16 and beyond. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Sep 27, 2013

    The Allreds have done "Madman" for years in the same ginchy style that "FF" ultimately sought to imitate, so with a third Allred on board now the flow is kept overall " so it's easy to say that if you liked what came before and you liked the Allred's seminal work, you're still going to love the charm and wit of "FF."

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 28, 2013

    FF #12 is a fun, if a little bit unfocused, bit of comic-book story-telling, with some nice chunks of character, little bits of story swirling 'round and 'round, while the main plot just sort of hangs above the characters' heads like the Sword of Damocles. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Sam Hawkins Oct 8, 2013

    FF #12is another enjoyable issue for this series. The playful insanity which has been prevalent in this comic since #1 is still present despite the creative change behind the scenes, whilst there also are clear signs of the bigger picture starting to shape up. Where it's all going? Who knows? But it looks like it'll be really fun. Read Full Review
