    This issue was really a "rally the troops, this is going to get messy quick" kind of a story. As we see each side shore up for the next battle, we gain a lot more insight into the relationship between Ronan and Crystal. It is interesting to think about their relationship as it stacks up against Sue and Reed. While both illustrate deep commitment, one seems a bit more "Natural Born Killers" than the other...

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Oct 17, 2011

    With a combination of strong dialogue and artwork FF #10 was the strongest issue of the series since its relaunch. Jonathan Hickman nailed the different interactions we got in this issue as he shows us where all these character are after all the big things that they have been through. With the Kree attacking the Inhumans on the moon it is going to be fun to see the Fantastic Four deal with more cosmic threats close to Earth. The next issue cannot come fast enough.

    Artist Barry Kitson takes over interior duties from Steve Epting and offers up some stunning visuals. An orange planet with rings of light is a breathtaking backdrop for the menacing Kree fleet; a fiery meteor tracks past the citadel of Attilan, which looks as if the Disney castle was jettisoned into space and Susan tends to her plants with invisible constructs shaped like watering cans. His settings are gorgeous and he does an excellent job incorporating his characters into each environment. Also, in an issue almost devoid of action, he receives a special nod for the cinematic quality of his art that keeps the pacing alive with energy. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Oct 12, 2011

    This issue is great for people who love a lot of exposition and talking; there's a lot of storylines being seeded for the future, here, and not a lot of action. However, you need that every once and awhile to balance out a book; you can't have action all the time. I think that Hickman did a great job of pacing the arc, if not the issue, and I'm looking forward to the next storyline as a result. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Oct 16, 2011

    There's nothing wrong with the story, per se, but I'm increasingly of the opinion that Hickman's story might read better in trade, which doesn't really encourage me to continue reading it in serial. As it stands, whether or not I come back for the next iteration of this series might depend on what else is coming out that week, which is too bad, but I'm having a hard time rationalizing why it is worth buying this title on a monthly basis.
