    ‘Fantastic Four' #45 brings the curtain down on the latest wide-reaching cosmic saga Marvel's first family have found themselves involved with. And in doing so Slott sets a new status quo for some familiar faces while still leaving lots of the next creative team to play with. A very satisfying ending to a story decades in the making.

    Fantastic Four #45 is a good send-off for major plot elements Dan Slott introduced. One might argue he's putting to bed some of his ideas and resetting the book for another creative team, but it's done with such nuance and professionalism it feels like we're reading a classic Marvel tale. Fantastic Four reminds us Marvel's cosmic universe is challenging and epic. Read Full Review

    A clockwork story worthy of Gardner Fox unwinds with precision, but feels a little bit too pat, while the art is okay, but not spectacular. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Jul 14, 2022

    Fantastic Four #45 wraps up the whole Reckoning War story as a massive epilogue issue. Everything is resolved and characters are mostly put back into their original places, but Dan Slott makes some big changes that feel excessive even for the Marvel Universe. It does end on the promise of new things on the horizon for the Fantastic Four and the Marvel Universe, but we'll see if these changes actually have any staying power. Read Full Review

    The rushed pacing of this final issue is a bit of a shock to the system and honestly doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Read Full Review
