    While it's the last issue of FANTASTIC FOUR, the volume feels appropriately capped off. Fans will get closure and some great, quick stories as well. There is really only one moment that's a little shaky in this over-sized issue. This is something fans will love to read on its own, but it will work even better in trade. If you've been loving this series, then you need to read this issue. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Apr 29, 2015

    It is these stories which act as the best send-off for a team that we probably won't be seeing again for a while, at least not until the followup story lines are resolved. For followers of the medium and especially those of the superheroes stories, there are likely few that have not been exposed to the Fantastic Four in one way or another, and so the stories are inhrently approachable, and in this case even non-fans of the team and its characters will find enough to take away in this issue to rank it a worthy of a look. It is with a sad heart for the diehard fans that this is the end for now, but as they say in the issue Fantastic Four Fourever, and it is inevitable that these characters return to the team in the long run.

    "Fantastic Four" #645 is a beautiful conclusion to a remarkable run, both for the series and for Robinson and Kirk. The four solo tales, the editorial farewell, the two-page check-in from Willie Lumpkin and cover gallery featuring some of the most memorable creators of the series are well-conceived and strongly executed additions to a story that almost singlehandedly carries the full burden of the cover price. I'm going to miss the Fantastic Four but, thanks to the creative team of this landmark issue, I'll be able to come back to this story until the staples fall out. Truly, this is "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine." Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #645is a must read that gives a satisfying end to a well written series. The Fantastic Four will be missed and I hope they have more epic adventures when they do make a comeback. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge May 4, 2015

    While it seems improbable that this is truly the last ever issue of "Fantastic Four", James Robinson and Leonard Kirk, along with a their group of collaborators, have worked hard to craft a story that feels fun, exciting and heartwarming, while providing a justly earned sense of conclusion for this family.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 29, 2015

    There's no telling how long Marvel will go before publishing a new Fantastic Four comic. But at the very least, the current series was sent out with style and grace. The FF received the happy ending they needed after being put through the wringer for so long. Read Full Review

    Gives each hero a spotlight (albeit not entirely equally) and serves as a good wrapup to Robinson's ongoing arc… The art is pretty phenomenal, as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Adam Alamo May 1, 2015

    Is this really the end of the Fantastic Four gracing the racks of our local comic shops? I have my doubts. The Fantastic Four were the first heroes to usher in the Marvel Age of comics, soon to be followed by many other heroes still published today. The story certainly didn't indicate a finality and if anything, the future seems brighter than ever for this fantastic foursome. But for now it's pretty clear that we won't be hearing from them any time soon and this final issue packed plenty of stories to tide us over until they eventually return. When they return, I hope the new series takes a cue from this final run and remains about wonder, fantasy, fun, and family. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall May 3, 2015

    Much of the plot is (self-admittedly!) formulaic, it is a formula that works. We feel the tension and energy in the various fight scenes, particularly so because of the pace of the battle and some powerful poses and character expression. With a big action set piece, and several backup stories that feature some touching, poignant moments, there's more positives to focus on than negatives, along interesting cameos and a strong sense of family. Everything is set to ensure the readers, as Johnny says, "[they're] not going anywhere." Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills May 1, 2015

    Fantastic Four #645 is not the end. Personally, I believe the theory that Marvel is playing politics with Fox. But whatever the reason for this hiatus, that's all that it is: a hiatus. Give it a few months, give it a year or two, the Fantastic Four will be back in no time with a new #1 issue. Fortunately for us now, Robinson and Kirk deliver a solid, exciting finale to their current story, giving everyFantastic Four character a chance to shine, throwing in a ton more characters just for the fun of it, and tying everything off with a bright blue bow.

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny Hughes May 1, 2015

    There are couple of back up stories, supposedly adding to the farewell feelings but again, despite some stellar art, I find myself longing for the days when this foursome were truly Fantastic, rather than the Average Four. Read Full Review
