    Fraction delivers a lighter story that is a lot of fun at the start, but definitely shifts into a more somber and serious tone by the end. Although this issue doesn't start out being all about Franklin and what he is truly capable of, it certainly shift to being about that, in a really good way. The panels that make up the final page of this issue are absolutely stunning, totally minimalist and just perfect. It is a great way to round off the comic in a really pretty way.Overall this is a really fun issue with very pretty art. The issue itself feels a bit disconnected with what we saw in the fifth issue, but I am holding out that we will see a resolution and an answer to what happened and how the events here fit into the greater storyline. This comic is pretty and well drawn and overall a lot of fun to read. I definitely recommend it, even if it might be a bit confusing for new readers at first. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #6 is still moving the plot along, but not much. However, Fraction's characterization prevents from this ruining the experience. If immediate results are what you're looking for, this isn't the book for you. If you're willing to wait for results and get a more intimate side to these characters; it's worth the price.

    For them most part this was a great issue. I was a little annoyed about the blatant ignoring of what occurred last issue but I also understand they can't ruin ‘Age of Ultron' by explaining it away. I'm curious what's happening to Thing and if the rest of the family had noticed or not. I'm also curious to when and where Franklin ended up taking them to see where we'll be next issue!

    It's not all lollipops and sunshine though, because Mark Bagley's art has some huge dips in quality in this issue. The first page is awesome. The fight scene that dominates the back half of the book is superb. The scenes in between are considerably less awesome. The Richards kids look downright strange, with bizarre head shapes and facial expressions. Once the fists and energy blasts start flying, everything looks great, but those small moments are almost painful. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Apr 11, 2013

    Another good read, with a great deal of action and an interesting sci-fi element, carried along by Bagleys consistently strong pencils. While still generally cheesy fun, the inherent silliness of the book is well-tempered by some heartfelt moments. Fraction is still slowly seeding Bens subplot, the effects of which we begin to see in this issue. As he continues to withdraw from the team and experience strange fits, his condition is worsening, leaving off on a bit of mystery as the team jets off to the next adventure. Overall, a satisfying issue. Read Full Review

    Mark Bagley remains a solid mark on the art front for Fantastic Four. His art grows on me, it's childish yet mind-altering. It kinda fits with something the likes of Fantastic Four. Most of these stories thus far have been fun. There is no dark brooding, traumatic character drama in this run for Fantastic Four. Yeah Reed needs to find a cure but that whole thing is totally on the back burner, and that is just fine! If the story is gonna be fun and nothing more Bagley is a great fit. He enhances the fun, I even dare to day he creates the fun and Fraction is the one who enhances it. Not the greatest issue ever made but most certainly not the worst. Fantastic Four is pretty much just a good time with very few attractions but regardless of how many rides there are, you still have a decent time. That is pretty much all you can ask for.

    "Fantastic Four" #6 feels like it's almost there, that the book is coalescing into what it needs to be. For now, though, Fraction and Bagley aren't quite hitting the mark. It's not bad, but once again, it feels like it could be so much better, too. Read Full Review
