    So, between Lockjaw, the Supremor Seed, and the always silent yet powerfully unpredictable Black Bolt, this issue was worth the read and addition to my collection. Many will not agree with me, but in the end, this issue will likely be referenced for some of the few gems it does provide. Read Full Review

    While it's clear that these two Black Bolt-centric issues will eventually tie in to the main narrative of FF -- Hickman is too good of a writer to not make that happen -- it's still frustrating that they have completely derailed the series' forward momentum. Let's pray things are set back on track next month. Read Full Review

    In the end, FF #7 is, without a doubt, the weakest of Jonathan Hickman's work since he joined the Fantastic Four. I suppose every writer has his off weeks and I'm prepared to write this off as a fluke iven how stellar his past couple of years worth of stories have been. Read Full Review

    There are moments including Sue‘s dialogue with her father-in-law and Valeria‘s escape from her room, but the main battle (including a far too obvious double-cross) feels rushed, messy, and unfocused. We are given a couple of hints that everything Reed thinks he knows about his other selves might be wrong, but here's yet another issue that's not really about the Council of Reeds. At least this one does have the Future Foundation in it. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    Thank God this disastrous storytelling decision on Hickman's part is over, with the comic I actually subscribed to returning next month. The fact that this two-part digression even saw release is proof to me that Marvel's editors have given Hickman a very, very long leash. Excessively so. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Jul 27, 2011

    Like I said above, this issue is very slow; we see a lot of set-up that's being continued on from the previous issue, but little in the way of actual progress. It's like issue #6 was preparing for Black Bolt's return, and #7's entire story was devoted to it actually happening. Seeing such a shift from a FF-centered storyline to a "Kree and Inhumans"-based one was a bit jarring. I'm not sure what to think of it. Read Full Review
