FANTASTIC FOUR #7 is also FANTASTIC FOUR #700, which means we're ABSOLUTELY going huge. It's an over-sized spectacular as the Fantastic Four reach their new home - not knowing that a mysterious threat has made it there first! As their knowledge of LANGUAGE ITSELF begins to melt from their minds, the Four are in disarray as their existence hangs in the balance...
...and the greatest villain of all time finally seals their DOOM.

    Double-threat writer/artist Iban Coello holds down the visuals with some expressive (dig the facial expressions!) artwork, eventually getting a chance to take a pass at dozens of familiar characters, and lovingly rendering even Johnny's truly heinous Sons of Anarchy 'stache, which he should burn off immediately, if that is even possible.

    As oversize anniversary issues go, this is one deserving of the extra couple bucks. Norths use of Doom in Fantastic Four #7 is pitch perfect. The character is complex, operating on multiple levels, and his presence fits in with the themes North has been weaving through the series to this point. He also doesnt overstay his welcome. Hes here for a specific purpose and leaves once that is resolved, leaving open the possibility for more encounters in the future. Read Full Review

    Very nice done-in-one anniversary issue that explores the simple mindset of the Fantastic Four's greatest villain, while spending some quality time with the family as well. Read Full Review

    Doctor Doom gets the honor of being the focus of a chunk of Fantastic Four #7 in a milestone issue that delivers science, problem-solving, and family. North and Coello, for the umpteenth time, make us believe the Fantastic Four are some of the best heroes ever. Read Full Review

    I'm glad to see Doom included in this run. It's a hell of a fun issue, and it looks great. Worth every moment. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler May 18, 2023

    Fantastic Four #7, or Fantastic Four #700, provides a story that's supposed to be a landmark issue for Marvel's first family. In reality, the team ends up being eclipsed by none other than Dr. Doom. Now, his entrance is cool, there's a story reason he's there, and it actually makes sense, sort of, why he does what he does. Dr. Doom carries this book thanks to Ryan North's writing actually capturing his personality well while Iban Coello and Jesus Aburtov bring him to life in spectacular detail. However, the story has a bad case of “Because the Plot Demands It” so nothing really comes of Doom's actions other than retreading the same thing about Doom's greatest weakness and getting some great art of Dr. Doom in action.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 19, 2023

    Fantastic Four #7 looks great and has a few amusing moments during the family interactions, but the plot is a jumble of ideas that don't make sense. Ryan North has ideas with potential, but so far in this series, he's unable to make those ideas work in a logical or cohesive story. Read Full Review

    Although the artwork and plotting always meet the marks of competence, it's increasingly clear that run may never really "start" as its 700th issue celebration turns out to be terribly dull. Read Full Review
