    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Nov 3, 2014

    Leonard Kirk is on the pencils for this issue, with Karl Kesel on the inks and Jesus Aburtov on the colours with VC's Clayton Cowles on the letters and Leonard and Jesus on the cover itself. This issue is visually a lot of fun, especially when you throw in Peter Parker, since there are a lot of fun gags to be had between the characters. And I liked how Leonard made Ben's face really expressive, despite his outward appearance. There's also a splash page depicting the destruction that Sue caused in Latveria in Fantastic Four Annual #1 a few weeks ago that really conveys the scale of what she did there. Fantastic stuff altogether. Moody and expressive and also uplifting. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #12 is a great issue for so much that happened througout. It's one of the few issues that gets readers excited for what's going on in the series and want to see what happens next. Also After reading Fantastic Four #12, you can't say you're not at least interested in seeing some of your favourite Marvel characters taking down some of Rob Liefiled's creations. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Nov 1, 2014

    The Bottom Line: It's a marked improvement from the momentum that's been bringing this series down, but aside from a genuine surprise reveal about the Eden corporation, most of the events still feel like items marked off a checklist. At least the checklist this time is overall a more positive one. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Nov 3, 2014

    The art by Leonard Kirk, as always, is excellent, with lots of kinetic energy and strong layouts. But the story by James Robinson just keeps faltering. I think he had a good idea for a story here - one that should have covered two or three issues, not more than a dozen. Read Full Review
