    Fantastic Four #561 was another wild ride as Millar continues to deliver an entertaining story on this title. Millar's Fantastic Four should appeal to action fans as well as fans who desire quality character work and strong plot development. Millar also delivers a story that is quite accessible for readers like me who have never been fans of the Fantastic Four before and have a limited knowledge of the Fantastic Four mythos. If you still have not given this title a try then I would certainly recommend doing so. Read Full Review

    If you haven't been picking this one up (perhaps the covers have put you off buying it), you're missing an excellent series. Read Full Review

    I love Mark Millar's Fantastic Four, I really do. He's given the team a different feel than they've had in recent memory, with more hard edginess and less goofy whimsy. I say it almost every time an issue comes out, but for the first time ever I'm actually looking forward to each new issue of FF. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Rob Galinsky Nov 21, 2008

    Millar has single handedly made me interested in the Fantastic Four again with these high-concept stories and faithful, sometimes sensational, interpretations of the first-family of superheroes. Hitch's art keeps me rereading issue after issue, mesmerized by the detail and layout he produces. If you haven't been reading this series, now is a great time to jump in, as one arc concludes and another begins. Plus, the trade of this arc is due out soon. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Nov 18, 2008

    By now, readers know what they're getting with Millar and Hitch's Fantastic Four: this is the FF as a high-concept action/sci-fi summer blockbuster, and it works well, playing to the strengths of both creators. The two arcs that we've seen so far have combined to form one single story that's more coherent and well-planned than I initially gave it credit for, with a solid take on Reed, Sue, Johnny and Ben from both the writer and the art team. I look forward to seeing where the second half of Millar and Hitch's run on the book takes us. Read Full Review

    In an era when spectacle is usually tied into some soul-crushing mega-crossover event, it's nice to see that an old war horse like "Fantastic Four" can still bring the thrills all by itself. It can. It does. Read Full Review

    There was a ton of buildup for the death of the Invisible Woman all for nothing. Instead of Invisible Woman dying, Invisible Woman from the year 2509, who we’ve known for like 1 issue, dies and Millar thinks we care. I do love how the refugees from 2509 went to Nu-World, as Nu-World is by far the most interesting concept Millar has executed thus far. I’m interested to see how Valeria develops as well
