SENTIENT, Part three!
The stunning conclusion to the battle with the data-driven Modulus!

    Mr. Wieringo has been accused of dipping too often in the manga well, but I see his style more a mixture of animation. Whatever it is, it works to bring out the emotions in the FF. The looks of determination and pain on Sue's face are particularly memorable, and Reed's uncharacteristic--but perfectly reasonable--anger sears the pages and make the story much more dramatic.

    While I found Reed's speech to Modulus overly sentimental, for the most part I found this issue highly enjoyable. Modulus certainly made an impressive threat, and Mark Waid makes use of the character's abilities in some fairly clever ways, which in turn resulted in some fairly harrowing moments. However what makes this book so enjoyable is Mark Waid's grasp of the little moments, as the opening interaction between Johnny & Ben is quite charming, and the final scene where Reed is playing with Franklin is an absolute perfect Reed Richards moment. As for the art, Mike Wieringo is quickly emerging as this title's ideal artist, as his art has a fun, highly energetic look to it, but when the story needs the art to deliver a sense of danger, it really delivers. From the scene where the building collapses on Johnny & Ben to the panel where Sue's force field is breached, the art does a wonderful job detailing the story. Read Full Review

    A satisfying conclusion to the first arc of Waid’s run, Sentient. Reed destroys Modulus by creating his equality inside his computer thing (there’s a lot of technobabble, hard to follow along). Reed tells Modulus that Reed will never feel the love he feels for Franklin. It was a touching father son moment, as well as their game of cards after the conflict is over. Basically, Waid excels at writing the family chemistry of this team. The interactions between Ben and Johnny are hysterical
