    I loved this issue and after the really good Wedding last month, the Fantastic Four is now one of my favorite Marvel books. If youve been waiting for the Fantastic Four to really return, I am glad to tell you they have. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - J.A. Fludd Jan 19, 2019

    Victorious is a well-designed character and I hope Slott has some interesting twists in mind for the story that I suspect lies ahead for her. Aaron Kuder, please dont leave. Gracia and Arciniega, keep up the good work. This issue of The FF leaves us eager to see more. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 16, 2019

    What a change of pace this issue brings to the series! Slott and Kuder are running full steam ahead with tons of action, new elements, but most of all a great handle on the characters. The first family is back and it's a walloping good time. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 16, 2019

    Doctor Doom, Galactus, and the Fantastic Four all explode across Latveria, shaping an FF story that is timeless in all the right ways. The plot is epic, the art is formidable, the Herald of Doom is a fascinating novelty, and the characterization is quite simply flawless. This is Classic Fantastic Four with a capital C.F.F.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 16, 2019

    Aaron Kuders art is good in this issue. The battle between Doom and Galactus was really well done and the art was exciting. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Jan 16, 2019

    FANTASTIC FOUR #6 has a very classical feel to it, especially for a Fantastic Four issue. It's filled with explosive action and features some of the best Fantastic Four villains. That's certainly enough to forgive a few artistic hiccups. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jan 16, 2019

    Overall it is going to take some time to get used to having the Devourer of Worlds back instead of The Lifebringer, but under these circumstances who could argue with an opportunity to see Doctor Doom versus Galactus? Overall, Fantastic Four #6 was a thrilling start to this new story arc, “Herald o Doom”. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason Dincauze Jan 18, 2019

    Slotts largely-strong start to Fantastic Four continues with an enjoyable, if still flawed, showing, and has found a more idiosyncratic and classic look with Aaron Kuder on board. This book has a lot on its shoulders after the long absence, and this arc will be a big indicator if it can stand up to that pressure. The potential is there, but a lot will come down to the execution of the final issues. Read Full Review

    New story kicks off with scale and energy to spare, though big moments and plot take center stage over characterization. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S. Lodi Jan 21, 2019

    Larger structure aside, "Fantastic Four" #6 is another great entry on this relaunch. By focusing on adventures only the four can handle, without losing sight of character, this one surely delivers. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 20, 2019

    I like the story, especially Doom vs. Galactus, but the art is a little bit cartoonier than I like. The team sounds like themselves though, even with Reed's ridiculous beard. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Allen Christian Jan 18, 2019

    Slott hasn't hit the ground running with this series. Half a year in and he hasn't made much of a mark. However, he seems to be steadily engineering a direction for the book that could end up being a noteworthy addition to the FF canon. Only time will tell how his body of work stacks up.
