    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Jul 21, 2013

    FF #9 thematically matches previous issues in proving the commonalities between the diverse cast of characters. While there wasn't an emotional punch, like any of the Scott Lang dream segments from other installments, the issue made up for it with an abundantly fun premise. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 Jul 17, 2013

    Everything in this issue is fantastic, and it is slightly rough to pick apart the smaller pieces of the title. FF is one of the crown jewels of Marvel NOW! Any fan of the Fantastic Four property would be well suited to get in on the action. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Jul 19, 2013

    With a brilliant art direction, credible kids character and some surprises here and there, FF continues to impress with its fun and bright look into the other part of the lives of the students and the teachers of the Future Foundation. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jul 31, 2013

    Over the previous eight issues, Fraction was positioning pieces on the board, andFF #9is the first move toward an even bigger story. I truly love this series, not only because it features one of my favorite regular creative teams — Matt Fraction and Mike Allred — but also because Fraction has taken a wholly unique approach toFF that pays homage to the past while moving the concept of the Future Foundation forward into new territory.

    Dont look too much into any negative aspects that may have been mentioned this issue is still fun and worth every penny. Things are about to get interesting too, as the FF are about to embark on a rescue mission. Both Fantastic Four and FF are titles you will not want to miss. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jul 20, 2013

    Much like Batwoman, this issue was a lot of set up, and it was a lot of fun. This new guy, Cotta, is mostly a means to an end, but his scenes were cool, like when the old John Storm (who is referred to by Bentley as "that smelly hobo that Mr. Lang adopted) recognizes him. The issue was full of fun moments, especially as far as Bentley's video was concerned. It was a clever way to introduce the readers to the Uhari, since I can't say I know all of the FF kids very well. But those I do know continue to be amazing. The scene of the frightened Leech and Artie running to Darla for comfort was too cute. I love those two with Darla. Also, Fraction has added the Inhuman Luna to the cast of kids, a choice that is just perfect. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 21, 2013

    I've dipped in and out of both this title and "Fantastic Four," but "FF" #9 is a strong installment that has brought on at least one new reader. Following Jonathan Hickman's brilliant construction of the Future Foundation, it was possible no creator would ever treat these characters sufficiently enough to merit my attention again. Except Fraction and Quinones made the younger members of the Future Foundation fun-loving kids with personalities and quirks, and put enough of a mission behind the adults that it feels as though this book personally invites readers back for more about their adventures. It worked. I'm back and looking forward to Fraction and crew will be doing with the kids and their mentors. Read Full Review

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Jul 24, 2013

    FF is a fun book. I wouldn't say this is the best issue, but I think if there were anyone to jump onto FF, I would start with this issue. You won't leave disappointed. Read Full Review

    FF #9 is a fun little issue which entertains, whilst also setting us up nicely for the next story-arc of FF, as the team decide to step up their search for the original team. If you have been enjoying this title so far, this issue is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Especially if you love Bentley-23. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 23, 2013

    Light and fun, I enjoyed FF #9 in the same way I occasionally like cotton candy, but much like the first couple issues of the series I came away wanting something a little more substantial (or even more zany). I really want to like the comic more than I do, but I'm not sure this will ever be more for me than a world I give a peak into every six months or so (especially if the tone of comic is going to shift more from the wackiness of the various children to the adventures of the grown-ups – although this would also finally give She-Hulk something substantial to do). For fans. Read Full Review
