    We're here to have a good time, and FF #12 delivers that in spades without sacrificing any of the stakes that made it so compelling. Do yourself a favor and come aboard. Read Full Review

    Hickman's writing gives you the feeling that he has a massive plan in the works and it's more than enough to keep you hooked. Who needs the Fantastic Four adults when you have all these wacky characters along with Doctor Doom and Nathaniel Richards? Read Full Review

    The writing, as has always been the case with this title, is sublime. The art deserves much, much better. Read Full Review

    If you've been reading and enjoying all of Hickman's Fantastic Four work thus far, then FF #12 should still be a welcomed addition to your collection. The story here is solid. It's just that the art can't keep pace. Hopefully Bobilo can clean up his pencils for future installments to better fit Hickman's grand vision for the Future Foundation. Read Full Review

    "FF" #12 is an interesting book, if not the most new-reader friendly. Hickman's script is overall good, though; I just wish there was a better choice of an artist to go with it. Bobillo's not bad, he's just not suited for a book primarily starring children. Unless his pencils can adjust to the subject material soon, Marvel is going to need to find someone else for "FF" and quickly. Read Full Review

    I wanted to like FF " I have really liked FF " but if this is going to be what having two Richards family titles looks like, maybe it would be better to stick with just one. Read Full Review
