    Fantastic Four: Life Story; #6 gives us a fitting ending to a series that has presented a Fantastic Four team that, while true to the original, has not always been the harmonious tight unite we know and love. Reed and Sue separated, Johnny Storm dead and now Doctor Doom rears his ugly metal head. A grand finale and an ending that is satisfying rather than over-sentimental. Read Full Review

    There's no way to effectively address global cataclysm within this genre's bounds and so Life Story simply does not. What it accomplishes far more effectively is a consideration of the flawed and often unheroic characters first introduced in Fantastic Four #1. That was the gift Marvel's first family brought to readers " imperfect heroes. And here in Life Story #6, those imperfect heroes are allowed to find one conclusion. Read Full Review

    Fantastic Four: Life Story #6 brings to the First Family what only someone who came from outside the comics world, like Mark Russel, can. Comics were not originally a world he chose to run in, and I think that gives him a certain degree of freedom to do whatever he wants. He likely doesn't have a deep and personal respect for the characters he's writing, and that allows him to do so much interesting stuff with them. I find not respecting a fictional character enough is often as detrimental to storytelling in comics as respecting them too much, and Mark Russel often strikes the right balance. Accompanied by a small army of great artists and editors, and I think this book has turned out very well in the end. I look forward to giving it another read one day, it deserves that.
