    My best advice regarding this issue is to buy it, as you'll never be given a more ideal opportunity to discover if you've got a Fantastic Four fan hidden inside you. This issue is a pretty solid showcase of all the elements that make this book one of my favorites, and Mark Waid does a very solid job of keeping the material engaging for longtime readers like myself, as while this issue is set up to draw in newer fans, the issue is also full of clever insights that I found quite interesting. I mean we learn why the Fantastic Four enjoy the popularity that they do in the Marvel Universe, and why their headquarters has always been front & center in the public's eye. This issue also serves to show us that if nothing else Mark Waid understands the character of Reed Richards, as Reed's little talk with Val is a defining character moment. Mark Waid's sense of humor is also on display, as I loved that final page where Ben & Johnny burst in. Read Full Review

    Are the FF superheroes? They are more than superheroes Mr. Shertzer learns, they are also trailblazers that take humankind into the new. Now back to the zaniness of the FF, as Thing and the Human Torch play around with Reed's time machine and now they have to go back and help Davey Crockett! Only in the reality of the FF can we find such delightful madness. Read Full Review

    The rest of the days have their moments, and I'm not ready to give up on the title like I am on the New X-Men, but Mr. Waid really should have taken the time to read what he wrote and edit mercilessly. Read Full Review
