    As much as I'm enjoying the writing, I'm enjoying the artwork even more. Greg Land and Matt Ryan are one hell of a combination! Land and Ryan's artwork is flat out gorgeous. The art on Ultimate Fantastic Four is by far and away my favorite art on any comic book. I can stare at their panels forever. Their art is so beautiful and detailed. It looks like the characters are stepping off the page of the comic book. I love the way they draw Johnny. Plus, Land and Ryan can draw some insanely hot chicas! The artwork is so incredible that it can make an average storyline interesting. Read Full Review

    As Reed, Sue and Ben are guided toward their first audience with the newly minted emperor, Zombie Sue decides that enough is enough, time to start spreading the sickness. And that's that. Considering how much is going on, very little actually happens. Millar has a history of playing the big setup only to renege on the climax. If he manages to tie everything together in the little time remaining - in an exciting and thoughtful way - he'll have established himself (further or finally, you decide) as one of comics greatest writers. I honestly hope he does. For the moment, however, things are moving a liiiiittle slow. Read Full Review

    UFF breaks what I call the "Ultimate mold" by implementing short, explosive arcs that allow character development to fall by the wayside. It's so un-decompressed that there's no breathing room. The story is so over-the-top that nothing can be taken seriously. Millar has some fascinating ideas, but the frantic pace doesn't allow any of them to be fully explored before he moves on to the next BIG thing. Ultimate Fantastic Four #30 is a mess of an issue of a severely overrated title, and could very well prompt me to drop an Ultimate title from my pull list for the first time. Read Full Review
