    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 1, 2010

    . Excellent issue and probably one of Hickman's strongest yet. Feels like what a Fantastic Four issue should be cosmic adventure and exploring new races and worlds. One minute they're sipping tea, the next they are on a rocket to the Moon and meeting new alien races. Never feels forced or like they are shoehorning new races into the backstory. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Apr 1, 2010

    This issue is clearly meant for patient readers looking for highconcept scifi. There isn't much plot movement and almost no action, but the concepts and character work are fascinating. Hickman has brought back the scifi curiosity and sense of unending discovery to this title that made the Read Full Review

    For the first time in a while, the FF feels like a "big" comic again - and I can't wait to see where this story is going. Read Full Review

    One final note, which I'll shoehorn into the end of this review only because it seems an appropriate way to address this particular subject: Hickman's brief one-page text afterwards are some of the strangest oddities I've encountered in a mainstream superhero comic. I've yet to see what they manage bring to the table, except to suggest that Hickman isn't yet able to convey all of his wild ideas in the actual comic itself. The sooner these things go away, the better. Read Full Review

    The first misstep in a run that's been phenomenal thus far. I can forgive that. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Mar 30, 2010

    However, no matter how pretty the book is, it's difficult to give it much of a recommendation when the new elements that are being added to the book don't actually progress past their initial introduction. I'm quite prepared for the fact that they'll all make a lot more sense once we know what Hickman's endgame is, and I'm sure that, once complete, the "Prime Elements" story may well hang together far better than it currently seems to -- but that's an argument for waiting to read the story in TPB form, not for buying the monthly issues.
