    I love the fact that Hickman reverts back to past events in his stories and brings them back to the surface. He creates interesting parallels between the relationships of different characters, and you see a lot of that in this issue. As sweet as this is, this issue changes a lot of things too. It's a sad story that definitely opens doors to possible story lines and interesting outcomes. I am definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next. Read Full Review

    Jonathan Hickman's epic storyline came to a triumphant close months ago, and for a while it felt like he was spinning his wheels until Marvel NOW!, but here he shows that there are still some important moments to be shown. While this conflict lacks in scale is makes up for in emotional power. I could certainly be accused of complaining that Hickman has been tying up all of his loose ends, but with issues like this I am certainly glad for it. Read Full Review

    I didn't used to like the Fantastic Four, only picking it up occasionally to read about the real protagonist: Dr. Doom, but this run won me over, even getting me to add this spin-off title to my pull list. I give FF #21 4 stars-A good issue continuing the plots and characters that we have come to love. It may not be as shocking and action-packed as other parts of the run, but it demonstrates that sometimes "not fighting" can be a good story, too. Read Full Review

    Jonathan Hickman might be ending his runs on both 'FF' and 'Fantastic Four' soon but he's left fans of Marvel's first family with some of the best stories in their long and illustrious history. I've said it before and I'll say it again. You want to pick this run up in trades when it's available. It's got everything that any reader of comics or good stories could ever want. Read Full Review

    All in all, this was not a terrible comic just not what I was expecting from Hickman right now. Read Full Review
