    There isn't much else to be said about this issue. The art is competent as always, and I'm particularly impressed with Paul Pelletier's design for future Doom's armor. In the end, this issue and arc aren't meant to do much more than tide us all over until Millar's first issue. It does that well enough, so I bid farewell to McDuffie. Now how about transferring him over to Black Panther, Marvel? That series could use a few more intergalactic wrestling matches. Read Full Review

    Issue #553 seems to have all the classic elements that make a good Fantastic Four story. You've got the wacky science fiction elements in the form of time travel. You have Reed Richards talking in a lot of techno-babble. You have Doctor Doom, the group's arch-nemesis trying to mess things up. And you've got a family arguing amongst itself. Perhaps the only missing element is The Thing proclaiming that it's “Clobberin' Time!” I'll miss McDuffie and Paul Pelletier's work here, but I'm very eager to see what Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch have in store for us.
