    In The End: If you read this issue in conjunction with Amazing Spider-Man #534 then you get the same story from two different perspectives. Even still, the two issues stand well on their own, especially this one. JMS makes the Thing a character I can like and respect. Mike McKone and crew's art was very slick and enjoyable. I've appreciated McKone's art since his stints with Superman and the Teen Titans and his versions of the Marvel Heroes are to my liking. Along with Amazing Spider-Man and this book the whole Civil War affair has become worth it. JMS definitely writes a Fantastic Four I can get into. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #539 is the best issue that Straczynski has turned out for this title in a while. Honestly, I'm not too sure how much longer I'm going to keep this title on my permanent pull list. I think it is time that Fantastic Four gets demoted to my probation list for the next six issues. In that time it can either earn its spot back on my permanent pull list or it gets dropped. Right now, I wouldn't recommend Fantastic Four to anyone. There are far better reads on the market that are more worth your money. Read Full Review
