    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 26, 2013

    Action, suspense, humor and a bunch of doom and gloom makes this one of my favorite series to read. Matt Fraction and Mike Allred have created a comic that has just about everything you could want in a comic. You never know what's coming up next. Just when you find yourself in the middle of a fit of laughter, you see the dark elements crawling beneath the surface. There may be a light-hearted feel to this book and all the characters but there is clearly some dark tidings coming along. This is the kind of comic I love to read. It has a great story and great art enhanced with so much variation throughout. More comics need to bring the entertainment, laughs and suspense like this series does. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 29, 2013

    The various problems with Medusa were slightly odd to try and understand. I wasn't sure what was happened with the Inhumans, or why they were all suddenly being painted as a bunch of ‘yes-men'. Then the fight between She-Hulk and Medusa seemed to come out of nowhere. She-Hulk hasn't gotten a lot of screentime in this series so far, so I just didn't buy her suddenly being so angry that she was willing to attack Medusa. But everything else in this issue was great. The kids were adorable, and had some truly hilarious scenes. Scott Lang was cool. Dr. Doom was evil. And Darla's ‘Thing Rings' line was possibly the greatest comic book moment of the year. Geeks like me love nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Matt Fraction is continuing to make a case for FF being his best title. Its all about the characters for this guy, which makes for solid reading in every book that he writes. The Mike Allred artwork is just a bonus for a book that has everything going for it. Great work guys. This was another great issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Jun 26, 2013

    We've said this before, but wherever the line is for a Mike Allred illustrated She-Hulk series, we'd like to get in it. Allred draws strong women that stand and move with a purpose beyond sexy poses and broken backs. You can see She-Hulk's strength in the way she stands as opposed to insanely rendered muscle tone. The character work in this book, both in the art and the writing, is second to none. Of course, not everything is perfect: the action still looks a little stiff. The scene involving the kids dog piling in the halls of the Baxter Building is awkwardly staged, at best. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Magen Cubed Jun 28, 2013

    Another solid issue from Fraction and Allred, this time adding another layer of intrigue with the Doom-Alex connection, posing a greater future danger. Seeing the focus shift to explore the growing tensions between Jennifer and Medusa was a nice departure, as well. As much as I enjoy Scott and Darlas relationship, so much of the drama has centered on them, and this confrontation really rounded out the team dynamics. I also enjoyed really seeing Bentley-23s interactions with the rest of the kids as he tried to ease Ahura into the group, as Bentley has abandoned his somewhat villainous attitudes to embrace the others. The inclusion of Tongs new identity, as well as the kids acceptance of that, was probably the best part of the issue. Enjoyable and engaging as ever. Read Full Review
