    Fantastic Four #39 is a great courtroom drama from start to finish. Slott knows the tropes of this genre very well from his time on ‘She-Hulk' but he can still find new ways of surprising the readers. A high-stakes issue with Slott's wry wit making an appearance from time to time to deflate the melodrama and remind us of the joy comics can be. Even when fighting over the custody of a kid!

    We take our leave, for now, of Dragon Man and Bentley 23, though it appears that the next time Bentley shows up, he will have taken on a new guise. The Wizard weve known up to now was an evil genius and a would-be murderer. Theres no basis for that kind of evil in young Bentley, so what role he will play in the future of the Fantastic Four remains to be seen. However, it will be good to have our stories focusing on only the immediate Richards family during these next months with The Reckoning War. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #39 resolves the court battle between the Fantastic Four and The Wizard with unsatisfying results. This issue was more uneventful compared to the last issue, but the art team does a solid job trying to portray the more emotional scenes. There is another “big reveal” made in the comic about The Wizard, but once you know the truth about it you might end up questioning where Dan Slott is going with it. Ultimately, this two-part story just feels like filler. Read Full Review

    The lawsuit saga has been a great exploration of the First Family, even if it ends rather abruptly. Read Full Review
