    It's still a bit too soon to declare that the new team is a perfect fit for this series, but so far, all signs are good. Perhaps it's time to dust off that "World's Greatest Comic Magazine" banner. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Oct 30, 2009

    I knew that I could expect great things from this creative team's tenure on Fantastic Four and I thoroughly enjoyed the first few issues of this arc, but they cranked it up to 11 with this week's issue. There have been few Fantastic Four stories in the last few years that have been this good. Hickman and Eaglesham have latched onto the key to the success of Read Full Review

    Hickman's Fantastic Four is quickly becoming one of the more memorable runs on the title, and easily deserves mention in the same sentence as Waid and 'Ringo and, if the current level of quality persists for years to come, perhaps even Lee and Kirby. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Jim Nov 2, 2009

    Fantastic Four #572 was a good read. This opening story arc was a good first story by Hickman and Eaglesham. I look forward to a long run by Hickman and Eaglesham on the Fantastic Four. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The conclusion to the battle is a bit of a mess, but the rest of the issue is absolutely outstanding, with the ending being one of the finest moments I've seen in an FF comic in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Oct 31, 2009

    Sure, this opening arc might be a bit of Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol" mixed with Alan Moore's "Tom Strong." But it's that infused with a little bit of Kirby and a whole lot of Hickman. It's very good, and if the covers begin sporting "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" blurb on the top, I certainly wouldn't bother to object. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chad Derdowski Oct 30, 2009

    A long, long time ago, the Fantastic Four was Marvel’s flagship title. It bore a banner which read “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine” and it deserved it. It is a title that tends to go through hot and cold streaks but more often than not, it’s in the cold. I’m very happy to say that the new team has brought the heat back to the book. Hopefully fans will take notice. This book is a ton of fun and it doesn’t have any of the doom, gloom or legal ramifications that a lot of other Marvel books have. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Matthew J. Brady Oct 27, 2009

    It seems like Hickman might still be finding his feet on the series, but considering the ambition he's already shown, hopefully that means the best is yet to come. He's gotten the story dealing with Reed's actions in Marvel's various plots of the past few years out of the way, so now he'll be able to focus on the other characters as well, and make this an exciting cosmic science fiction comic with a focus on character again. I'm pulling for him. Read Full Review
