    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Dec 8, 2022

    Fantastic Four #2 is a wonderful story about two people who love each other and, more than anything else, are always eager to help others. That sometimes gets lost in this series (especially when it comes to Reed) because giant, occasionally crazy plots take center stage. Also, some writers, in portraying Reeds intelligence, will leave him feeling somewhat cold. But North really humanizes the characters here, and I expect reinforcing that feeling will be important down the road when we find out what happened to the Fantastic Four. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 7, 2022

    Fantastic Four is a breath of fresh air in superhero comics. Light on violence but heavy on heart, this series will win you over. Grinch's out there better watch out, as Fantastic Four will make their hearts grow three sizes as they fall in love with these characters all over again. Fantastic Four #2 reminds us of the strong and loving relationship between Reed and Sue and throws in a Doom twist to boot. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Dec 7, 2022

    Fantastic Four #2 told a fun one-shot style story that established the way Ryan North and Iban Coello plan to present Reed and Sue Richards. The adventure itself was well done with its connection to Doctor Doom. More importantly, this issue successfully established the voices for Reed and Sue in the wake of whatever happened in New York City that turned the world against the Fantastic Four. If you haven't checked out the new Fantastic Four series yet I recommend jumping in now as this has been a good jumping on point. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Dec 8, 2022

    Fantastic Four #2 bizarrely continues the model of delivering an issue that has nothing to do with the "incident in Manhattan or the Fantastic Four together as a team. The art is good enough, and the issue works as a Scooby Doo/Twilight Zone-styled mystery, but if you're looking for a Fantastic Four adventure in a Fantastic Four comic, you may have to wait until the Spring of 2023.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Dec 23, 2022

    Fantastic Four #2 follows a misadventure with Reed and Sue encountering a bunch of incognito Doombots. The situation with the weird Doombots is at the forefront of the story as Reed and Sue are trying to figure out just what's going on. The twist is interesting and makes for a neat mystery for these heroes to solve; it's not the biggest reveal but it works for the story that's told here. Read Full Review

    This issue provides another solid, but unspectacular entry in a relaunch still waiting to be launched. Read Full Review
