    Steve Epting walks a nice line between wild sci-fi and dark superhero artwork himself, making him the logical choice for the title. It's an intriguing idea, and there's plenty of room here to explore all corners of the Marvel multiverse. I'm really glad to see Hickman getting the chance to reach out and take chances with his stories. Read Full Review

    My favorite part of the story was on the page where this image took an entire panel, without dialog (see non-cover image). Read Full Review

    FF #3 is another great chapter in Jonathan Hickman's Fantastic Four epic. It's very hard to complain about Hickman's approach to the FF and their mythos. Even when you factor out the death of Johnny Storm, Hickman is writing one of the most engrossing Fantastic Four stories I've ever read. I can't wait to see where this goes. Read Full Review

    FF certainly stands as one of Marvel's top books at the moment, so even a slow issue such as this month's does little to detract the notion. You really shouldn't miss next month for this cherished family's entire conglomerate (sans Torch, of course) versus these intergalactic-elastic, skunk-sideburn-wearing, unlimited-intelligence-sporting clones. Or something to that effect. Read Full Review

    On the negative side, this is at least the third time I've seen the Watcher make an appearance in as many months. That's far too often, especially here when his appearance isn't warranted in this issue. Instead it's used to over-hype the events that may occur in the next few issues. I like the Watcher, but if he starts showing up for every calendar event the entire point of his character is made worthless. Just sayin'. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren May 14, 2011

    Hickman fans will love it and I do, but it's hard to really judge this type of story on a single issue basis when so much of it demands knowledge of his entire run on Fantastic Four and with so many disparate threads and plots moving in different directions and the story feeling very much like it was written entirely with the trade in mind.

    "FF" #3 is the kind of issue that's going to read much better in a collected format, but as a single issue it's a bit of a drag. At this point I think anyone reading Hickman's stories has learned that this sort of thing just crops up on occasion. Hopefully now that he's gotten this massive information dump over with, the pace will start picking back up again. With war on the horizon, it looks promising for us readers. Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a book with FF action, pick up this week's Amazing Spider-Man instead. It's got "clobberin' time" all over it, as well as the Secret Six, Scooby-Doo pirates, a Doctor Who reference and Spider-Man doing what he does best. Saving lives. Mind you, those Carlie Cooper moments bring the book to a dead stop. Read Full Review
