    The art is fantastic throughout the issue and all the artists do an amazing job of moving the story forward with their complementary styles. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Sarah Bieniek May 3, 2019

    I love the Fantastic Four and they're back, which I love even more. I enjoyed watching them come together as a team and learning more about the kids, hopefully we get more of both in future issues. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Adrian Care Apr 24, 2019

    This was a great issue and one hell of a good time. This issue exemplifies everything a Fantastic Four comic should be but goes beyond just ticking boxes. Could this be a sign that the creative team is about to kick into a higher gear? If this is the standard to expect from the title going forward, then here's to Dan Slott surpassing his Spider-Man tenure. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Apr 25, 2019

    Dan Slott does a fantastic job wrapping up this arc with a classic FF feel while weaving his own unique spin on Marvel's first family. The issue was fun and engaging with a hint of the familiar FF banter sprinkled throughout that was clever, clear, and informative. After following Slotts run through all 9 issues, it seems like the Fantastic Four are in good hands at least until Galactus shows up again! Pick this issue up. And while you're at it, go pick up the other 8 too! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - J.A. Fludd Apr 30, 2019

    In all of comics there is no greater enmity than that of the Fantastic Four and Dr. Doom and no more entertaining story than watching Marvels greatest heroes and greatest villain come to blows. For all of Marvels history, the most bitter enemies have been Doom and Mr. Fantasticbut now, with this new twist, Dooms wrath and vengeance will fall on Reeds wife as much as on Reed himself. Up to this point, Dooms attitude towards Sue has been, Beautiful, but married to my mortal enemy and must be destroyed. Now the Invisible Woman is as much Dooms bitter foe as her husband is, and that could get us into some very interesting situations in tales yet to come. Read Full Review

    With issue #6 being the conclusion of an arc, FF has a hard time wrapping the story up neatly, but it's not quite as noticeable thanks to some great character work and dialogue. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Matt Attanasio Apr 24, 2019

    FANTASTIC FOUR #9 concludes what has been a fairly uninspired arc. Dr. Doom's return to villainy, though fun at first, was a poor choice for the character. Nothing really changed for any of these characters. And though the artwork is fun to look at, it is equally as uninspired as the story. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 27, 2019

    The issue feels rushed and shallow, despite the seemingly major stakes involved. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Apr 24, 2019

    Muddy and muddled, this series needs a single solid artist working with Slott, who can put their aesthetic stamp on this in the same way as past Fantastic Four artists. In the end, this is a decent comic book, but it is hardly fantastic. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Allen Christian May 1, 2019

    I have been incredibly up and down with this run, but I feel like every time Slott hits on an idea that might be somewhat interesting, he veers back into familiar, mediocre territory. This issue didn't have to end with a bad call back to a forgettable John Byrne story, but it did, because that's who Dan Slott is, apparently. It didn't have to neatly put all the toys back in the box as if under some odd early-70's Stan Lee editorial dictate, but it did all the same. It's incredibly frustrating to watch, month after month, as he almost gets it and almost understands how to write a good Fantastic Four book, only to shoot himself in the foot the next month, if not pages later.
