    Fantastic Four #573 is yet another reason to believe Hickman's run on this title will be a great one. I can not wait to get my hands on future issues. Read Full Review

    So far Hickman's run on FF has been note-perfect, and this issue is just another example of that. Read Full Review

    With this done-in-one issue of "Fantastic Four," Jonathan Hickman blends big ideas and smart character work to deliver a great read that takes a somewhat boring concept like Nu-Earth and adds a twist to it that sets it up as another unique and alien location in the Marvel universe.

    Enjoyable for what it is, but it creaks a little at times due to the weaker art and Hickman's obvious motivations. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Nov 29, 2009

    This issue really is the epitome of a "Check It" book. Nothing really major happens and it doesn't really push any major storylines forward, however, the writing and art are enjoyable enough that you won't feel like you wasted your time reading it. It's a decent read, but keep in mind that there are many much, much stronger comics out there this week. Read Full Review

    Jonathan Hickman looked to be off to a strong start on FF, but this one is mostly a misstep. It's more of a utility issue than anything, meant to complete a job and move on to other things. Unfortunately that results in a mediocre issue of this book, and I had hoped that Hickman's arrival meant we wouldn't have to suffer through more of those. Read Full Review
