    Comic Watch - J.A. Fludd May 20, 2022

    As we noted earlier, next issue is going to be mighty crowded. In addition to seeing how Dan Slott will get Reed out of this mess, well also see all sides of The Reckoning War converge on the planet of the Watchers, and learn the ultimate fate of all the Watchers and the forces of Wrath. We can pretty well expect that Doom wont end up with all the marbles as hes planned, but his part in it should be fun to watch. And that will be the start of another Fantastic Four summer.

    The Reckoning War continues to consume the Marvel cosmos with multiple characters doing their best to hold on. ‘Fantastic Four' is a pacey, punchy issue that ramps up the action and the stakes. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler May 21, 2022

    Fantastic Four #43 has Doctor Doom face off against the mysterious alien warrior called the Cormorant. While seemingly a one-off character, the comic does delve into the Cormorant a little that explains his relevancy now in the Reckoning War. The art from Rachel Stott and Andrew Di Vito with Jesus Aburtov's colors is at its best in the fight between Doctor Doom and the Cormorant. There are a series of side developments shown along with Doctor Doom's big fight, some of which advance the Reckoning War's main story. Read Full Review

    Pulling together bits and pieces that Slott's been sprinkling through more than a decade of stories, with impressive art and a truly epic scale, it's worth your time and energy. Read Full Review

    Nothing on these pages is compelling, despite being competently written and well-illustrated. You forget it as soon as you close the comic. Read Full Review
