The Human Torch is alone in New York, trying to survive in a city that hates and fears-well, mostly him specifically. There's just one thing for Johnny to do: Adopt an all-new secret identity and take an all-new job nobody else wants! But when things at work heat up, Johnny discovers that while you can forget the past, that doesn't mean it'll stay buried...and has to decide if there're certain things that the Human Torch can't let himself do! Also! In this issue, Johnny Storm fights a tornado!

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Jan 5, 2023

    Fantastic Four #3 delivers another very strong issue building up toward the reveal of what happened to split the team apart. And North adding in a little reminder of how these characters benefit by being together is a bonus. But what steals the show here is the artspecifically what Coello and Aburtov do with the Human Torch. And it makes me very excited for the kind of rich, creative visuals we could get down the line.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Jan 5, 2023

    Fantastic Four #3 brings readers another misadventure, this time with Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch. Ryan North and Iban Coello give readers an exciting intro to the comic and North really embraces the fun-loving, charming, and mature aspects of Johnny's character that tend to go ignored in most other stories and the pair deliver a fun story for the Human Torch. The comic also has an interesting ending that sets things up for the next issue to be very interesting. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 4, 2023

    Fantastic Four #3 continues the trend of satisfying one-shot style adventures for specific members of the Fantastic Four. With all four getting their adventure after this issue, it's time to see what North has cooked up for the team when they're together, and I couldn't be more excited. Read Full Review

    Callbacks to the depths of Fantastic Four continuity provide another reminder that this series is set to provide a robust and encompassing saga for its titular heroes as soon as they all appear. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jan 6, 2023

    Fantastic Four #3 dips into Unsellable Squirrel Girl levels of idiocy with a Johnny Storm solo story that serves only one purpose – demonstrate to all readers that Johnny Storm is an idiot. Read Full Review
