    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 27, 2010

    All in all, Im very impressed with this issue, and its clear that the identity of the soon-to-die member will probably be a surprise up to the last second. This is a damn good story, and an excellent take on the most difficult book in Marvels arsenal, leading Fantastic Four 585 to net a VERY impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars overall. Hickmans take on the FF is amazing, and Eptings art seals the deal. Read Full Review

    Epting is a great artist. Hes like a mix of Alan Davis and Bryan Hitch. If I have one criticism, its that he needs a stronger inker to strengthen his lines. In many panels, they look almost half-closed. Beyond that it all looks nice and has great colouring by the unmatchable Paul Mounts. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 24, 2010

    Steve Epting's arrival as new regular artist hasn't been quite the boon for the series as might have been expected sadly. Epting's artistic strengths simply lie in other realms, such as the darker, espionage-tinged world of Captain America. He doesn't fully capture the bold, larger-than-life, Kirby-esque quality of Dale Eaglesham's issues. While certain sections of the book are visually stunning, particularly those set in Atlantis, scenes involving Galactus and other loftier concepts lack the aura of the fantastic. It's an unfortunate flaw in an otherwise stellar story arc. Read Full Review

    So I find myself a quick new fan of Jonathan Hickman and his run on Fantastic Four. I'm sure all these myriad of events are heading toward a great moment of convergence and the fate of the world will rest in the hands of these four intrepid heroes. Can't wait. Read Full Review

    While Hickman plays it safe this month, this is still a very good issue. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chris Kiser Nov 26, 2010

    As is often said of a Hickman book, the true value of this issue won't be properly ascertained until the revelations of the grand finale. Even so, it's already plain to see that "Three" is yet another carefully considered entry in the Fantastic Four canon. Hickman is a writer who clearly understands the value of the franchise entrusted to him. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Nov 27, 2010

    If "Fantastic Four" can stick the very tricky landing on this impressive maneuver of story and scope then it might come off as smarter than we thought it would. It's an ambitious attempt, and to be respected for the effort, but eventually it can't rest on its few laurels of the past. This comic feels good, and great once Namor shows why he's everyone's favorite arrogant ruler, but it isn't consistently as pleasing as we might want to give it credit for. It's counting down to a death but I don't see any stand out candidates so far, though my outside money is on Reed. Read Full Review
