    I am very glad to see FF get back to fine form with issue #8. It's not perfect and I do feel the issue could have been a little longer, but at twice-a-month, I suppose I can't really complain about that. This is storytelling in the Mighty Marvel Fashion through and through. I'm glad to be able to say this again: any comic reader that is a fan of superhero comics needs to be reading this series as it is the shining example of the genre right now. Read Full Review

    FF #8 is good comics. There's a lot going on and it's all really engaging stuff. The interlude of FF #6 and #7 is really well used in this issue, making a few moments way more meaningful than they would have otherwise been. I'm back to being excited for this book and I cannot wait for next month's installment. Read Full Review

    There are just four issues left until we (presumably) see the return of the Fantastic Four, and a story this big will no doubt take that many issues just to sort things out. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Charles Joy Mar 16, 2012

    This issue does not disappoint. It is chock full of twists, turns, action and drama. The over-arching story is really starting to make sense as all the plot streams converge in this fantastic battle for Earth's survival. The best aspects of this issue revolve around Doom. He has been overly cooperative through all of this. What is he getting out of all this? Can he be up to something? Is this all part of a doom-esque calculated plan? In this issue we find out... and sadly, it is Victor's trust that dooms him in the end. Read Full Review

    Visually, I like the idea that the Future Foundation uniforms are adaptable, although I'm not entirely sure why that is. Regardless of why, the variants Reed and Spidey wear this issue are cool, and it's still terribly weird to see the likes of Dr. Doom, Diablo, and the High Evolutionary sporting the same colors as our heroes. I'm loving this title even more now that we've finished our two-issue sidetrack into Inhumans territory and back to the characters that brought me to the title in the first place. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Aug 24, 2011

    The issue is good, and the story has been solid. My biggest complaint, however, is that Hickman hasn't made clear just how powerful and influential the Council of Reeds is. How threatening are they? They didn't appear enough in this issue, something I would have liked to have seen since the last two issues have focused on Black Bolt and his return. Still, it's a very interesting story line, and the ending will definitely leave you asking a lot of questions. Definitely not new reader friendly -- if you are interested in reading, start from the first issue of FF. Read Full Review

    IGN - Erik Norris Aug 24, 2011

    It killed me that the last two issues of FF weren't up to par with everything that came before them. Thankfully, FF #8 is a return to prominence. FF fans should be satisfied with FF #8, no doubt about it. Read Full Review

    There is no doubt in my mind that when read as a whole, "FF" is going to be a strong and thoroughly enjoyable story. But like before, when it comes to an individual chapter in a serialized story, "FF" #8 has some pacing flaws that are hard to ignore. It's good, but it's a shame it wasn't better. Read Full Review

    It's a good issue, and the more adult take on the conflict is well-handled, but I want more than I'm getting" Read Full Review
