    In his attacks upon those he loves most, this issue shows just how hideously possessed Ben Grimm is, but "Fear Itself: FF" serves as more of a teaser than anything else. Event-related comics have gone from true tales that tie into the main story to thinly-veiled advertisements for a better or more complete story found elsewhere. That's a real shame, as there certainly seems to be plenty of opportunity to further examine some of the stories present in this issue. Read Full Review

    For $2.99, this issue might seem worth it: you get a little bit of insight into the mind of a Worthy, and you get to see a little of the internal conflict that is going on in Ben Grimm's mind. However, you also get a whole lot of bad to go a long with it: an inept Richards family, a head-scratching absence by Spider-Man, an appearance by Alicia that should probably have ended with her maiming, and no lasting consequences. I'd pass on this one. Read Full Review
