The FF goes "widescreen" in a tale of epic scope and proportion as Manhattan is cut off from the rest of the world by a fleet of miles-high alien spacecraft -- and that's just the beginning! With the Avengers in disarray, New York reluctantly turns to the disenfranchised Fantastic Four, the only heroes in town, to save them -- but where to even start?

    Mike Wieringo finally gets the opportunity to deliver one of those moments where the readers receive a Fantastic Four level moment, as while I've enjoyed Mark Waid's work on this title he hasn't really offered up any blockbuster moment where the Fantastic Four were called upon to deal with a threat that felt as overwhelming as the big threat in this issue provides. If nothing else this issue manages to show readers that Mike Wieringo is capable of delivering the sense of grander that such a threat requires from the artist, as there's some spectacular visuals in this issue from the initial arrival of the alien devices, to the big reveal where we see the full extent of what these devices are doing.

    Great issue by Waid and Wieringo. For the first time in this run, the FF family go up against one of those world ending threats as alien devices land around Manhattan Island. A lot of great action and character interactions. Ben and Johnny’s humor is as great as ever
