    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Mar 10, 2023

    Fantastic Four #5 continues the series stellar new run. Norths writing is a little more complex. And though the artist is different here, the issue doesnt miss a step. This series remains a must-buy even for readers not usually dedicated to Fantastic Four. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 8, 2023

    In Fantastic Four #5, a road trip is in order for this family, but danger and death are around the corner in ways that you don't see in any other superhero comic. This series continues to capture the family feel of the team, the eclectic voices, and an endearing quality that's hard to resist. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Mar 8, 2023

    Fantastic Four #5has some old foes face the Fantastic Four, but there's more to their fight than just the battle. Nick Scratch and the Salem Seven come in, fight, and once they've accomplished their goal, the real story is seeing the Fantastic Four figure out what to do next to fix the problem. The writing is good, and the art from Ivan Fiorelli is excellent and maintains the visual energy and action from the past issues. Overall, the comic is a fun side adventure with the Fantastic Four.

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Mar 14, 2023

    This is a fun single issue story that shows what this new status quo can live up to. It's well worth checking out, and a great indication of what could be to come. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 11, 2023

    An otherwise enjoyable issue of the Fantastic Four is bogged down a bit with long-winded science explanations for what exactly is going on. Read Full Review

    The scale of Fantastic Four #5 meets the stature of its villains providing a lackluster installment. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Mar 8, 2023

    Fantastic Four #5 continues the bizarre road trip with a magical attack that sounds scientific and smart but ultimately hides a boneheaded plot. The leaps in logic are ridiculous, the dramatic tension is completely absent, the villain's plan is silly, and the outcome makes it seem like this entire issue was intentionally pointless. At least the art is great, so that's something. Read Full Review
