    James Robinson has been crafting a contemporary Fantastic Four tale that will stand among the other great runs of these characters. Hitting its emotional turmoil with this issue, I am looking forward to what happens next to Benjamin J. Grimm and the rest of the Fantastic Four. Read Full Review

    All in all this was a fun read and highly suggest not to skip this issue just because it's a tie-in to a certain event Marvel is going through. It helps with the story the series is going through and it work a bit frustrating if you pick up the next issue and realize there was important stuff going in Fantastic Four #7 that you needed to know before reading the next issue.

    I haven't been a big fan of more contemporary Fantastic Four volumes and creative teams. They just weren't my cup of tea. However, I am loving what James Robinson is doing with this team and series, even though this issue was incredibly depressing. I love the flashback scenes with Haspiel and Woodard on the art, and this series has really captured my attention in a way other volumes and creative teams have failed to do. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Jul 11, 2014

    The Bottom Line: If tension between a family dynamic is your thing, then check out this issue. It feels like a classic FF dilemma done with modern focus on characterization and expressive art. At the same time, however, it feels like there's something missing to make it truly suspenseful and not just going through the motions. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jul 14, 2014

    Kirk and colorist Jesus Aburtov's colorful and dynamic cover, featuring Sue Richards facing off against The Hulk with The Avengers ready to intervene, has absolutely nothing to do with the happenings inside, but it's beautiful enough to enjoy regardless. Continuity questions and other blemishes aside, Robinson tells a very sad and disturbing story of betrayal and anger, and the team of artists comes together for a very fitting depiction of it. The primary story of "Fantastic Four" #7 isn't mandatory for "Original Sin" readers, but it fits nicely into Robinson's current run on this title. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier Jul 10, 2014

    This isnt the feel good comic of the week. Judging from the ending, despair and dark emotional challenges will continue for the foreseeable future of the Fantastic Four. Robinsons character driven plots are emotionally charged, however, in the absence of contrast, it might be too heavy for some readers. Read Full Review
