    This series charm lies in Norths ability to blend clever stories with the humor and sense of family inherent in the teams interactions. In Fantastic Four #6, his script, combined with the art teams talents, creates a fun and surprisingly introspective Johnny story. Everyone should give this Fantastic Four series a look at least once.

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 12, 2023

    Fantastic Four is in great hands; every panel and page of Ryan North's series is proof of that. In this science-focused penultimate issue to Fantastic Four #700, we're reminded of this super team's teamwork, camaraderie, and familial love as they stop the world from being destroyed by the least threatening thing imaginable. And it's great! Read Full Review

    Equal parts great and frustrating as the creative team continues to combine wonderful character writing with nigh impenetrable science. Read Full Review

    This is a fantastic issue (pardon the pun) and what more Fantastic Four stories need to be. It continues to be the best Four run in years. Read Full Review

    Im ready for Fantastic Four issue 700 already. The cliffhanger at the end of Fantastic Four 699 seemed a little out of character to me, but Im going to trust that the creative team that has given us such a wonderfully fun ride thus far is going to really pay off next issue. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Apr 12, 2023

    Fantastic Four #6 picks up where it left off with the FF discovering that some of the mirror bacteria hitched a ride and they need to stop it from spreading. But they come to a very extreme solution that just throws powerscaling for the FF a little out of whack, and expectedly leads to the general public distrusting them even more. Admittedly, the writing between the Fantastic Four members is still entertaining and heartwarming here, which slightly balances out things. Hopefully, the creative team can reconcile things in the next issue without downplaying the gravity of what happened. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Apr 24, 2023

    Fantastic Four #6 tries very hard to tell a scientifically smart story and comes off as silly to the point of being dumb. It would serve this series better if Ryan North spent more time writing a compelling story than showing off his prowess for technical jargon. Read Full Review

  • 4.0 - Chase Magnett Apr 12, 2023

    Fantastic Four #6 provides a conflict that is absolutely fascinating on paper with microbacteria from a mirror universe threatening to end all life on Earth in a scientifically possible, yet minute scenario. It's the sort of strange sci-fi scenario the team has excelled in presenting at their best and the concept here is very well considered, but Fantastic Four fails to present it with any sense of tension, drama, or excitement.
