    Fantastic Four, more than anything else right now, is a fun series. North knows what to take seriously, what not to take seriously, and when to lean into each. And at this point the issues are still largely self-contained, so someone who didnt hop on in the beginning can jump on at any point. And Fantastic Four #8 is a great time to do just that.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 7, 2023

    Smart and clever with impeccable attention to detail, Fantastic Four continues to be as good as its ever been. This issue is slower to get going, but it's impossible to miss the character work, love of the characters, and nuanced storytelling. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Jun 9, 2023

    Fantastic Four #8 brings a new story, a new mystery, and a new villain for the team to face. It's Sue in the driver's seat this tine as she and Alicia are the main characters for this misadventure, and it doesn't take long before they find a mystery to solve. The writing is solid and the art is good, but the new threat Queen Xargorr feels like a rip-off of Jack Kirby's original monsters in Marvel Comics. Not exactly a bad thing so long as the creative team pulls it off in the end. Thankfully, it looks like things will pick up in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Fairly simple story is bolstered by the usual strong character writing and artwork. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four #8 is slow to get started as it establishes a new status quo for the team while they take shelter at the "Fantastic Farmhouse," but once the mystery begins revealing itself things become increasingly interesting through a "To Be Continued" that's bound to keep readers hooked.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Jun 8, 2023

    Fantastic Four #8 is a mild improvement over the previous issue but still too far away to be considered a worthy run for Marvel's first family. The formulaic Scooby Doo mystery in a small town is becoming repetitive, characters take random actions without explanation, and the pacing in this issue is terribly uneven. Read Full Review
