    New Fantastic Four #1 is a fun book to read. Even if you have no history with the original run, the characters are well established. This allows readers to jump right into the story without having to spend time researching backstories. While some of the plot points seem rudimentary, there is enough promise here to give readers hope that the story will get better. If you are looking for a read that will neither burden you with a ton of back matter nor a long-term commitment, then this is a book for you. Read Full Review

    NEW FANTASTIC FOUR #1 was incredibly easy to read, comfortable, calm, and felt like a sitcom with so many of my favorites. Its a stress-free comic reliving a time in comic history where stories carried little weight and were created simply to be entertaining and not life-changing. David hits the nail on the head this week and creates a comic I wasnt expecting but couldnt help but love. Give NEW FANTASTIC FOUR #1 a shot but keep an open mind with your expectations. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    New Fantastic Four #1 makes no promises beyond its elevator pitch: Ghost Rider, Hulk, Spider-Man, and Wolverine walk into Las Vegas. Luckily, it exceeds its own simplicity and delivers something playful and self-aware. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 22, 2022

    New Fantastic Four #1 isn't bad but it also doesn't excite. The best moment involves Spider-Man and the Vulture and then a later joke involving the Vulture. It sets things up nicely but doesn't do it in a way that you have to read the next issue. It sadly feels like a forgettable spin-off miniseries or a short story arc where you just wait for the next bit thing. Nostalgia is great but we need a bit more than this. Read Full Review
