    It's not a deal-breaker, though, as the story is interesting enough and the art does an okay job of keeping things moving. The layouts aren't great, and the use of the white page is a good idea, but it kind of overpowers the scenes where it plays a part. All in all, I'd prefer a more dynamic art team, but for a tie-in to an event I can't stand, it's more than worth a look. Read Full Review

    As with the art, the story shows a lot of promise and potential but isn't quite executed as one would hope. Hickman's overarching ideas so far show that he has a lot in store for Marvel's first family in the future. Hopefully, he uses this limited series to work out the kinks and deliver a truly outstanding product. Read Full Review

    I really like the ideas that the second chapter of Dark ReignFantastic Four presents. Hickman, no stranger to high-concept, definitely makes that aspect of the story work. Unfortunately, the book feels only slightly above average as a whole because too much of it ends up feeling like filler. If a better balance can be achieved between the various storylines at work, I really think the mini-series could turn into a must read. Read Full Review
