    Comics should be fun, and that's exactly what this comic book is. Not only is this a fantastic book that highlights on the friendship between Peter and Johnny, but it's the type of book that (stylistically) will leave old readers feeling nostalgic about the way comic books used to be. There is a ton of fantastic character interactions in this issue, and the art compliments the story perfectly. This is a gorgeous issue that isn't at all heavy like the last story that just ended in FF. Fun issue with a lot of fantastic elements. Great for both old and new readers alike. Read Full Review

    Jonathan Hickman and artist, Nick Dragotta (whose pencils brim with visuals that are akin to John Romita Sr. or Steve Ditko's work on Amazing Spider-Man), do a superb job of exhibiting why friends that are usually the life of the party aren't always the smartest choice in a roommate. After a story of the ages which involved Dr. Doom, multiple Reed Richards', Galactus, the resurrection of Black Bolt and a bit of time travel thrown into the mix, issue #17 of FF is one funny lighthearted breath of fresh air that one dare not miss.

    This issue could have been a flop without Nick Dragotta's impeccable facial expressions. Much of this story is unspoken, leaving Dragotta to convey Peter's anger, Johnny's indifference, and the heinous enthusiasm of Blackbane the horse-alien. The best sequence features no dialogue at all and is definitely the selling point of the book. To pick a favorite moment would be hard, but I knew Dragotta had produced something special when I saw a panel with Peter passed out on the pavement, Johnny hitting on a mounted police officer, and Blackbane hitting on the horse.

    Overall, this issue was a fun read and worth picking up. I think I was a little disappointed with this issue because I had high expectations that fell a little short. But this issue is still worth reading for any Spidey and Human Torch fan. Read Full Review

    Anyway, that was a bit of rant. I apologize. Regardless of my stance on the problems with this industry that we all love, if youre a F4 or a Spider-Man fan then youll have fun reading this issue. Just dont expect it to take up any more than 4 minutes of your time. Read Full Review
