    I really liked this issue a lot and I'm very interested in seeing where this story is going. I'm a big fan of T'Challa when he's written well, and so far the premise and the characterizations are on point. I think it's nice that Hickman addresses the current state of Wakanda, too. Beautiful art and an interesting story rooted in mythology is certainly exciting. I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    "Fantastic Four" #607 is more of what fans have come to expect from Hickman's definitive run on this title. This is another paragraph in the love-letter to the imaginative corners of the Marvel Universe. Hickman just happens to be using the Fantastic Four to visit those wondrous places. In joining Hickman on that journey, we learn about the Marvel Universe, these characters and a little bit about ourselves in the course of some fun comics. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #607 is a very interesting set-up to what I hope is a revitalization of the Black Panther concepts, and thus maybe we can get a spinoff series restarted once again - hey, maybe that's even in the cards for Hickman's future plans once he leaves the FF proper. We can only hope. If anything merits Hickman's high-minded approach to storytelling, it's the legendary, ancient culture of Wakanda. Read Full Review

    Every little crevice of the story just keeps you sucked in because there are some real stakes involved that effect the entire Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    With a book that looks like this, Jonathan Hickman's story is almost a superfluous concern. His take on T'Challa has some nice gravitas, particularly when he makes it clear that he's head and shoulders above Reed Richards' vaunted intellect. The overall exposition does get muddled, however, against a gorgeous fight sequence. While that makes the stakes less than urgent, the artwork for Fantastic Four #607 make this a book to watch.

    How will Hickman surpass or even conserve the emotional momentum those moments? And yet, with an opening as powerful as this one to "Inert", surpassing those moments already seems certain. Read Full Review

    Giuseppe Camuncoli and Karl Kesel work together to make a great looking book. There are a few oddities, such as Storm's awkward embrace of Sue, but overall the issue shines. The best moment comes early when Black Panther catches Bentley mouthing off and he towers over him with those impressively broad shoulders. A noticeable amount of extra breathing room is given to each panel, yet there is not a shred of wasted space. The backgrounds are lavishly detailed, but one has to wonder why Wakanda uses the same logo as the Thundercats. Read Full Review
