    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jul 22, 2020

    X-Men/Fantastic Four #4 is a great comic with less than great art. Zdarsky crams so much story into this issue without it seeming crowded, and his ending perfectly captures who Xavier is nowadays. It would be nice if the art was as good as Zdarksy's script, but it's just not, and there's nothing that can really be done about that. However, even less than agreeable art cant take much away from this book. It's that good. Read Full Review

    Throughout the issue, the artwork is great. This is unsurprising, as the Dodsons are usually great. There is a bit of a blip towards the end as Ranson Getty inks a couple pages in place of Rachel Dodson. The work isn't bad, it's just noticeably different as Getty's inks using thinner lines that Rachel's thick, defining lines. On the plus side, Laura Martin colors from start to finish, giving the whole issue a generally united appearance. X-Men/Fantastic Four #4is a great, thought-provoking conclusion to a great, though-provoking miniseries. The writing and artwork are top-notch as this fun little side-story to both the X-Men and Fantastic Four looks to have greater long-term implications for both teams. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Jul 24, 2020

    The X-Men have remained so righteous and steadfast in their conviction over the decades that you cant help but tip your hat to their commitment to provide mutants with the ideal of safety, kinship and home. The Fantastic Four are always pushing the limits of what is capable while staying grounded in family and friendship. The explorer in you wants to devour more of their adventures and your heart melts when a good writer nails their heartwarming side. X-Men/Fantastic Four #4 delivers another great issue.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jul 25, 2020

    X-Men/Fantastic Four #4 concluded this crossover event in a satisfying way. Chip Zdarsky and Terry Dodson were able to complete Franklin Richard's character arc and where Doctor Doom is positioned in the current state of the world in a way that creates a lot of potential for the X-Men and Fantastic Four's respective futures. If you are currently reading any of the X-Men or Fantastic Four comic books than I highly recommend checking out X-Men/Fantastic Four when the trade is released. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Matthew Brake Jul 27, 2020

    X-Men/Fantastic Four #4 brings the mini-series to a close, resolving Franklin Richards' status as a Krakoan citizen (for now), but not without establishing an underlying sense of menace. Read Full Review

    While the form of the superhero team-up remains largely unchanged, this miniseries makes clear at its end that familiarity does not preclude artists from exploring fascinating topics. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Jul 23, 2020

    Fantastic Four vs X-Men #4 is a solid finale to a series I mostly really enjoy. It's my least favorite issue, but in the end, I don't regret reading it. If you are thrilled by the X-Men's new status quo, you'll likely find much more to chew on than I did. If you aren't, however, there is still enough here that's worth your time. Read Full Review

    Readers, zero happens that you didn't expect to transpire. There really is no twist or curtain reveal. And as far a feuds go that encompass forcibly taking your son away, it ends rather quietly and easily. The series just" was there. Was this solely a series involving two flashy names to draw in fans? It seems that way. Read Full Review
