    If you're not on board with Fantastic Four yet, it's time to reevaluate your relationship with comics as a whole, because you're missing something fantastic. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Nov 14, 2018

    Fantastic Four #3 caps off the family reunion story with all of the wit and heart that was missing from previous issues. It's a thoroughly satisfying conclusion and a powerful, past-due demonstration of what this creative team can do with the title. This volume needed to take a big leap forward; #3 makes an impressive vault and nails the landing, too. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Nov 14, 2018

    Though FANTASTIC FOUR #3 skimps on the villain a bit, and has some artistic hiccups, it's all well worth it to finally have Marvel's first family reunited! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - J.A. Fludd Nov 15, 2018

    This issue represents the Fantastic Fourboth the book and its charactersgetting back on their feet after three years of separation and three years without a new issue every month. One more welcome sight is to be found on the cover of the main edition of this issue, with the Esad Ribic painting: the return of the Worlds Greatest Comic Magazine! banner over the title. Regardless of commercial considerations and the relative popularity of other characters who would not even exist if there had been no Fantastic Four, it is this book and only this book to which the designation of The Worlds Greatest Comic Magazine! rightfully belongs. With more appropriate art choices and the sure hand of Dan Slott on scripts, we may yet hope to see another renaissance for the firstand still the bestMarvel comic book. Read Full Review

    Dan Slott brings the Fantastic Four back together with some heart, some action and some humor, which is everything you should want from a Fantastic Four comic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Nov 16, 2018

    While it's far from perfect, Fantastic Four #3 is at least on the right track, as Slott and Pichelli put the First Family back on solid ground. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Brian McCormick Nov 16, 2018

    Dan Slott's plot is ambitious in scope, but attempts to do too much at once. Cameos feel superficial and suspend belief, such as when Sue Storm is exchanging dialogue with the Griever and just goes invisible to whisk Franklin out of her grasp. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Allen Christian Nov 18, 2018

    This is a disappointing issue, which is a big blow to Slott's tenure very early in the game. This was one of the big ones. The next big one will be #5 (Legacy #650), featuring the wedding of Ben and Alicia, which has recently been expanded to a whopping 72 pages with an equally whopping $7.99 USD price tag. But a fumble this bad hardly makes me excited to pay double the price or carve out the time to read 72 pages. I'm still in it, though. I'll be back here in a few weeks, keeping the faith. Slott has put together a lot of fun comics over the years, and he plans on writing Fantastic Four for many years. Here's hoping for the best. Read Full Review
