    I personally really enjoyed this issue. I have been a big fan of both FANTASTIC FOUR and the FF, so seeing the way these two books compliment one another the way they do here is great. I loved the way the children are portrayed in this issue and I have enjoyed the level of depth that Hickman has given these characters. Although I don't recommend reading this issue without having read the last issue of FANTASTIC FOUR, I do think that these two books serve as a great introduction to characters like Bentley and Valeria. The other FF kids get some really fun panel time too, which was nice to see. This is another great issue of FF which will make just about anyone fall in love with these adorable kids.

    As this series winds down and writer Jonathan Hickman prepares to leave, issues like this one are bittersweet. They're awesome fun to read but knowing that it'll be gone after next month stings a bit. Let's hope that Hickman returns to the FF universe sooner than later after Marvel NOW inevitably reboots or relaunches the series. Read Full Review

    FF#22 highlights many things that are great about Jonathan Hickman's run on the Fantastic Four, particularly his knack for characterization and his grasp of the FF's larger mythos. Read Full Review

    The story overlaps too much with the events of F4 #610, and so it feels like time spent showing events we have already seen could have been used to focus on Bentley's journey instead. While the plot leading up to the conclusion with the Wizard lags, Hickman ends it all with an exclamation point that fits Bentley's character to a tee. Even better, the final note of the issue encompasses his entire run on FF: it's a little weird, a little touching, and a long time coming. Read Full Review

    Great artwork can't change the fact that so much of this issue is just repackaged material. Read Full Review
