    Well, its all over but the fallout, and for that we have an epilogue issue of Empyre centering on The FF next week. All things considered, this issue was a briskly paced and skillful wrap-up of The Fantastic Fours part in this latest Marvel event. Next ish, its back to business as usual for a whileat least until Marvel calls another event and the regularly scheduled adventures of our force-some foursome are interrupted yet again.

    Fantastic Four #23 is a great finale to the Empyre story arc and a reminder of how this team does their best work when they think their way through a problem. On the other side of the coin, Wolverine and Spider-Man punch up the action, providing the best of both worlds in this issue. This is one of the strongest examples of how a tie-in can matter as much as the event itself. Read Full Review

    In the end, the high point of this arc was Reed's message at the end of #22, urging his kids to go forth and be fantastic. This finale is a fitting and fulfilling payoff to that message, and Val and Franklin are indeed fantastic in action. This volume of the Fantastic Four has its weaknesses, but this issue proves that the kids aren't among their number. Read Full Review

    Just once I'd like Franklin to flip a table, snap his fingers, and have everything resolved in one to two pages. Is that a cop out? Probably, but it would be better than reading twenty pages of nonsense. Franklin is a power house and if he's going to be used to do nothing, I'd much rather him not be in a book. At this point I am on the mutants side, let him go to Krakoa. OR give this title to another writer, maybe they might have something better for the Fantastic Four. Read Full Review

    Let's chalk it up to a bland crossover experience and move on, yeah? Read Full Review
