    It's a helluva ride as the F.F. face what could be the deadliest foes they ever took on"themselves! The Cancerverse versions force our heroes to examine their motivations and they may not like what they see. But then they turn that mirror on their attackers and the Cancerverse counterparts are forced to see a part of themselves that they may not like either. It's a battle of wills and wits, only who will come out on top? Just when you think everything's going to get tied up nice and neat"to be continued! **** (9.2 rating) Read Full Review

    I look forward to all the characters coming together in Annihation Scourge: Omega. It promises to be quite an issue, and if all the one shots released so far are an indication of quality this is a series that fans of Marvel Cosmic, especially Annihilation events, are going to love.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - besottedgeek Dec 4, 2019

    ANNIHILATION - SCOURGE: FANTASTIC FOUR #1 is a pretty good event crossover book, and a decent FF story to boot. Christos Gage understands the familial dynamics of the team and tells a fun story, even if it ends a little conveniently. The big draw of the book however has to be Diego Olorteguis amazing art, especially his creature and Cancerverse contaminated work. Its not a perfect book by any stretch, but you could do a lot worse, and fans of Marvels First Family should check it out. Read Full Review
