    Like I said earlier, I've actually come to enjoy Fear Itself for what it is: a great crossover that seems to be just about good versus evil. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's formulaic, because it takes advantage of the rich Marvel history while still treading new ground. Read Full Review

    And about that nice little thing that was revealed… You know, what Thor's importance is? Yeah, turns out what we've always known about the battle between Thor and “the Serpent”? Turns out that it's not as bad for our hero as we've always thought. That was one of the bigger “Wow” moments for me in this book. Read Full Review

    It's all been building nicely, and next issue should blow the doors off. If you've missed this one, you've missed an outstanding series that combines the best of modern storytelling with a classic "everything's on the line" Marvel extravaganza. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Sep 15, 2011

    It should also go without saying at this point that Fear Itself is an absolutely gorgeous book. Stuart Immonen has evolved so much from the earlier days of his career, and when you compare his work on Fear Itself to his first illustrated event, DC's Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 14, 2011

    Though still annoyingly uneven as a whole, the better portions of Fear Itself #6 help to redeem the series. It's almost certainly too late for this event to live up to its original potential, but there's a good chance it will end on a strong note as all sides converge for one last, epic brawl.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 14, 2011

    This book devolved from a great story with dazzling art to a sampler of Marvel's higher-priced monthly books. Want to finish a story thread that started in "Fear Itself?" Try reading "Avengers," "Iron Man 2.0," (Has Rhodey even appeared in this main series?!) or "New Avengers." Or make it up yourself, draw it out on some copy paper, and pretend your version happened. You might be happier that way. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Sep 14, 2011

    The art is still pretty good, but it can't make up for a story that is too lightweight to be called an “event” and some cringe-worthy dialog (“Man Down!”). On the positive side, it is almost over and you can be pretty sure that something will happen that is important to the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Colin Andersen Sep 15, 2011

    As it stands, I am, more than anything, glad that Fear Itself is coming to a close next month. In my opinion, it has overstayed its welcome and spread to far too many books when it really has been nothing more than a glorified Avengers mini-series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 16, 2011

    Fear Itself #6 is a good issue standing alone, but the wave of hype, the flood of crossovers, and the sheer bludgeoning weight of the crossover event keep me from enjoying it. Read Full Review

    As it stands now, though, Fear Itself has no business being this boring. Read Full Review
