    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Mar 27, 2013

    This is an incredibly entertaining issue. Not only does Fraction present us with a fun story, but he gives us a peek at interesting characters and a book chock full breathtaking art. The dynamic is fantastic and the story we see here will keep you at the edge of your seat the entire time. Unlike the story we see in FANTASTIC FOUR (also out this week), this issue meshes better with the continuity we've been seeing thus far. Overall, another great issue that is witty, cleverly written and organized in a way that will leave you wanting more. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Daniel Cole Mar 31, 2013

    The continued adventures of this oddball team are a joy to read. Matt Fraction and Mike Allred are a perfect partnership and their combined skills have made FF a must read title. This issue is packed with humour as the visual gags and witty script keep you laughing throughout. But the issue also moves forward the plot and delivers excellent characterisation. All its elements are strong and well balanced, so the issue feels like a complete experience. It really is the comic everyone should be reading. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Steven Romano Mar 31, 2013

    FF is a series that's been gaining significant praise for delivering hit after hit, and issue #5 is a strong indicator that it will continue to do so and stay on the shelves for quite some time. Besides, what other comicbook is out there that gives us amorous Moloids, underrated heroes in the spotlight and the fan-favorite artistic style of the Allreds all in one convenient package? Here's a hint: you can count it on one finger. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Mar 27, 2013

    Full of clever visual gags and Fractions brand of low-key humor, this issue doesnt disappoint. The endearing weirdness is again matched by subtle character development as the dynamics of the team continue to grow and change every month. Another enjoyable read from a series that has only gotten better. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Mar 27, 2013

    That said, there are a few scenes where the backgrounds disappear a bit too often and it can lead to some confusion. The store John Storm finds himself in seems strangely staged and barren. The FF building is also sparse and empty, but when your characters look this amazing, it's a forgivable offense. Read Full Review

    ScienceFiction.com - Stuart Conover Mar 31, 2013

    The fun and almost easy going nature of this book is quite refreshing with the death and destruction occurring in the Age of Ultron universe. FF pulls off light hearted in a way that has never been quite so successfully done in the current age of Marvel. It fits in a way that you wouldn't think possible and does it perfectly.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 30, 2013

    The issue is all over the place, but in a good way. I didn't even mention the visit from the Atlantean children's father, or Darla trying to pick a good mask to wear with her Ms. Thing costume. There are a lot of scenes, and it can feel a little disjointed, but that's fine when the scenes are as adorable and as well-written as these. Fraction still has a very strong handle on the various characters he has in play, this issue could have just benefitted from a little more focus. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 30, 2013

    FF #5 continues the streak of utterly baffling but incredibly entertaining issues, playing with each character, the setting and the history of comics themselves. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Adventures in Poor Taste Mar 27, 2013

    The art is very eye-pleasing to say the least; Mike Allred draws very appealing people, locations, and action scenes in his pop art style that perfectly fits the tone of the comic. Though his layouts are kind of boring and I swear I've seen some of these people before in the other comics he drew. Read Full Review
