    The creative team is firing on all cylinders. Paul Neary and Paul Mounts deliver some beautiful inks and colors over Bryan Hitch's pencils. And Russ Wooton's has to be commended for his choices in typefaces (it all just fits perfectly). Fantastic Four is in very capable hands. Prepare to be enraptured from page one. Read Full Review

    I really can't think of a reason why someone wouldn't want to read this series now. Then again, some people give me the impression they just don't like reading good comics. Regardless, Millar and Hitch are making good on their promise to morph Fantastic Four into the World's Greatest Comic Magazine again. Read Full Review

    It's a fun read. Everything flows well and I'm just enjoying the hell out of this story, even with any and all nitpicks I have with the title. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Mar 11, 2008

    All things considered, this is a very solid Fantastic Four comic. There are big ideas, exciting visuals, and enough family-based soap-opera to keep the characters grounded (with the possible threat to the family dynamic that's posed by the "other woman" reinforced by the fact that we don't even see Sue in this issue). The story flows smoothly from one scene to the next, with the exception of a scene featuring Johnny Storm, which is a fun enough moment that it warrants inclusion even if it does break up the flow of the main story slightly. Combine this with Hitch's great artwork, and you're onto a winner. Whilst the book might not be Fantastic just yet, this improvement on the first issue shows that Millar and Hitch are certainly moving in the right direction. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Mar 17, 2008

    Fantastic Four #555 was an enjoyable read. Millar certainly picks up the intensity a rogue CAP in the loose. This issue probably won't appeal to fans who demand more action and a faster paced story in their comic books. However, I believe that a little bit of patience on part of the reader is about to pay off. Read Full Review
