    Combine Doom with the unconventional storytelling taking things back and forth in time to preserve the surprise, and you've got another hit on your hands. I'm ready for more of this. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 28, 2019

    The art is amazing in this issue as well and the artists do a great job of rendering the characters and the amazingly detailed backgrounds. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - J.A. Fludd Apr 1, 2019

    With this issue and the next, Dan Slott will have completed his re-set of The Fantastic Four. He has the team back together and up and running, in a new home, with the kids older and Ben and Alicia married. He has restored Dr. Doom to his place at the top of the super-villain food chain (and then some). Once we get past the War of the Realms crossover episode scheduled for FF #10, I have a feeling (assuming the art remains consistent) that things are going to start looking really fantastic.

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 27, 2019

    An exciting issue that suffers a bit from the choice to reuse four pages of art within the comic itself. That said, I dig what Slott is doing and it's got Stan Lee vibes all over it. Mix that with an excellent group of artists and Fantastic Four is that weird kind of fun that's hard to replicate. This is big hero comics with the right amount of strange. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Mar 27, 2019

    FANTASTIC FOUR #8 has a consistently evil and classic feel to it, but at what cost? Dan Slott is seemingly aiming to undo all the progress Doom has made in recent years, which feels like a failure to me. On the upside, at least this issue looks good, thanks to the artistic team.

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Apr 1, 2019

    This is an exciting chapter as Doom, once again, seems to be succeeding in his quest for total world domination. I always love it when Doom puts our quintessential quartet in seemingly inescapable traps. Especially when they're more ingenious then the previous traps. Marvel, at least with the Fantastic 4, seem to be getting back to basics and putting fun back in their comics. Susan plays a pivotal role by this issues end as She shows Doom his"to be continued.

    Flickering Myth - Allen Christian Apr 1, 2019

    All of that said, #8 is a wonderful issue that made me happy to be reading this run. I have my ups and downs with it, and routinely question what Slott thinks he's doing here, but if he can routinely strike this kind of tone month after month going forward, this might just end up being must-read comics.

    PopCultHQ - Adrian Care Mar 27, 2019

    I wanted to love this issue, but I had to settle for finding a lot to like amidst some missteps instead. There are some big moments and bigger ideas, and the things working against them don't completely undo what's great. The suspenseful and "ha!" moments really land. Keen to read on and take this as a necessary piece of larger, enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S Lodi Mar 29, 2019

    Despite a beautiful and effective visual narrative, "Fantastic Four" #8 misses the opportunity of being as remarkable as the first family can be. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 30, 2019

    Way too many artists and a storyline that's just a bit too broad hamper would could have been a pretty cool issue of Fantastic Four. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Mar 28, 2019

    Unfortunately, the artwork is as muddled as the story is brilliant. With four artists working on this issue in interchangeable order, there is no sense of unity to the book. Nothing really looks bad, as such, but there is no clear visual aesthetic and no purpose for the discontinuity. Fantastic Four fans will enjoy themselves, but this issue won't win over any new readers. Read Full Review
