    Overall, I was impressed by the story. I really liked the art on this one as well - different but good. Oh, and how could I forget, there was a few nice panels with our favorite teleporting hound dog, Lockjaw! Read Full Review

    Really interesting issue, very different and unexpected shift from what we saw in the previous issues. Even though the FF doesn't make an appearance here, it seems like the events that have taken place in this issue will leave a massive impact on the FF story ahead. Read Full Review

    Despite all the problems with this issue, it is still mostly solid and Hickman has more than earned my trust with his work on Marvel's First Family so I have faith that this issue will lead somewhere both interesting and exciting down the road. Even if you don't feel the same way, it is still an excellent "historical" work for the Marvel Universe as a whole and I still recommend that anyone that has enjoyed FF so far not stop now.

    This issue felt like a bit of a waste, as it didn't focus on anyone from the Future Foundation, and at this point didn't seem to move the plot along in the least. And if this is the way to somehow resurrect Black Bolt, it is one of the most obtuse, complicated and convoluted ways of doing so. The script just wasn't up to the high standards that Hickman has set for himself, with the same being true of the artwork by Tocchini not matching the high level of artistic excellence I'm already accustomed to on this book.

    I'm honestly not sure why I had to read this. Worst issue of FF by far, but then again, I'm not sure whether this even counts as an issue of FF. Read Full Review

    I suspect that when read as a whole, this issue (and presumably the next one) will read better, but as part of a serialized story the extreme shift in characters and location feels frustrating. The last several installments leading up to this point were so much on point that this feels like an ill-timed swerve. Issues like "FF" #6 seem determined to make people want to wait for the collection. Read Full Review
