    We're now nine issues into Ryan North, Ivan Fiorelli, and Iban Coello's run of this series, and yet again, we get a new and important perspective, this time from Alicia Grimm. Fantastic Four continues to excite with new ideas, clever perspectives, and a series that never holds back with strong characters. Read Full Review

    Throughout the issue, all three of the team mates with their memories intact enact clever ideas that play out with a genuine sense of spectacle on the page. Metatextual adjustments, including a page depicting Alicia's perspective, contribute to the action rather than distracting from it. Read Full Review

    In Fantastic Four #9, Ryan North continues to be his own worst enemy by taking simple fights and simple ideas and making them more complicated than they need to be in an effort to make this comic needlessly profound. The art looks great, and the action reflects the kind of big battle excitement you want in an FF comic, but the issue is weighed down by silly execution and ponderous pacing. Read Full Review
