    Fantastic Four #565 was another fine read. Millar and Hitch continue to be tacos in the bank with this title. I would certainly recommend giving Fantastic Four a try. It does not matter if you have ever read the Fantastic Four or not. Millar is not getting bogged down in continuity and is making his run on this title quite accessible. Fantastic Four is a nicely balanced title that offers readers good character work, well crafted stories and exciting action. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Mar 24, 2009

    This is a simple story that perhaps relies a little too much on coincidence in order to make the monster feel like a truly serious threat to the team (for example, Johnny's attacks are useless, as the water-based monster just happens to be flameproof). In the end, though, it's a fun enough romp that's reminiscent of the early issues of the Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four, which often felt as much like monster comics as they were superhero stories. An enjoyable way to spend an issue, even if it does feel like an appetiser for the really good stuff that's yet to come. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Mar 25, 2009

    Looking at the big picture, issue #565 is probably destined to become a curious footnote in Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch's run of better-than-average Fantastic Four comics, but that doesn't excuse any of its faults. The story is a mess, and the art is serviceable if uninspired. Next issue begins the promised "Master of Doom" storyline, and if this issue's teaser is anything to judge by, it's going to be a return to form for the book. I'll certainly be waiting anxiously for it to wash the bad taste of this issue out of my mouth. Read Full Review
