    It's great when a writer can stay on a title for a while. It's even better when you get to see them take the book in the direction they wanted and tell the stories they have in mind. Nearly all of Hickman's run has maintained a high quality feel and you could see how everything he's done has been leading up to this point. We can look back now at past issues and see how everything happened for a reason. We sometimes see subplots developed that get lost or forgotten but that isn't the case here. Steve Epting's art makes this explosive issue even better by delivering exactly what we want and expect from him. We may not always get to see Epting and Hickman together but when they are, it's a definite treat. Hickman's run just makes me proud to be a fan of the Fantastic Four. I have no idea how he can top this massive story but chances are he's already busily working on the next big adventure. Read Full Review

    A perfect ending to a fantastic run. Forever has proven that if Marvel gives it's next big event story to anyone but Hickman, they will be sorely, sorely mistaken. Read Full Review

    I can't talk any more about the comic without giving the events away, but let me just say: it's wonderful to see such a complex story pay off in such a satisfying way. Loved it! Read Full Review

    This entire "Forever" arc has been outstanding and it definitely sticks the landing. This feels like the culmination of Jonathan Hickman's entire Fantastic Four body of work and it's amazing how well it's been pulled together. Let's hope the future of the Fantastic Four is as bright as this moment right here. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Mar 14, 2012

    It's a touching but not trite story about love and family with moving moments from artist Steve Epting, plus it's a giant god-fight with Franklin Richards cutting loose with his mind-bending power. It's a very satisfying conclusion to a huge saga that's beyond the comic book norm, and those don't come along very often. Enjoy it while you can. Read Full Review

    This is, simply put, an excellent issue. Hickman is going to go down as one of the all-time great Fantastic Four writers. Read Full Review
