  1. Alright Fraction, let’s see what ya got! I dig that its going cosmic – I just hope Valeria gets a of panel time – she was my favorite character of many great characters from Hickman’s run.

  2. I’m excited for this. I missed out on Hickman’s run, and only recently got into Marvel’s first family after reading the Lee/Kirby Masterworks. I plan on getting the Hickman stuff in trades, because I’ve heard such good things. I really enjoyed Cassanova, so I’m hoping Fraction brings the goods on this and FF.

  3. Hickman’s run is one of the reason I actually read super-hero books. But I have faith in Fraction, I expect his redemption.

  4. This will be my first venture into Marvel Now and only the second Marvel title I’ll be picking up, Daredevil being the other.

    Pretty excited! I’ve been wanting to get Hickmans stuff for a while aswell.

  5. I’m pretty sure Fraction has the biggest shoes to fill of all the Marvel NOW ‘reboots’. Iron Man needed a change up, Thor just came off a big story arc so naturally could switch creators and Bendis has needed new characters to write for ages.

  6. How often does this book come out? once or twice a month? and what about FF?

  7. This was really cool. I never felt out of the loop, though I’m sure some minor things went over my head. All in all this issue introduced a mystery/problem, set up the new mission, spotlighted each member just enough–I loved the Yancy St. bit–and I can’t wait to read #2. I’d say that is a pretty succesfull #1 issue. Bagley and Farmer did a great job on the art, and I think Fraction proved–at least for starters–that the family is in good hands.

  8. It’s kind of confusing whether the story will continue in FF or in issue #2. FF looks like a very different take than Fantastic Four, so it will be interesting to see how Fraction develops the family between the two, seemingly distinctive, comics.

  9. Like everything Fraction has written that isn’t Hawkguy, incredibly dull!

    • Casanova dull?? His X-Men run was good too. Wait til this family blasts off, I think we’ll be in for a treat. More of the “In-a-dinosaurs-mouth” type stuff…at least this is my expectation.

    • I liked his book the Order, but agree I haven’t cared for anything else he’s written (I thought his X-Men and Ironman runs were both very bland). After reading this issue, I’m on the fence about picking up another. It sort of feels like Mortal Kombat: Annihilation to me, where sure there are some similarities to the first movie but it feels like they’ve recast Franklin and Reed with worse actors and decided to go more epic instead.

      (And yeah, I might be the first person to compare Hickman’s amazing FF run with Mortal Kombat the movie.)

  10. i really enjoyed this, and Bagely’s art looks awesome. He clearly lives and dies by the inker, because Farmer did a bang up job. And I feel this is one of Fraction’s strongest script in awhile (barring Hawkeye) and he was able to keep a similar tone to Hickman’s run while making it his own.

  11. Solid, didn’t blow my socks off – but there was just enough there – Bentley’s mayhem aftermath, the Moloids love of Ben – to keep appeased. I;m down with the premise, so I’ll stick around. I have no real love for Bagley though. Run of the mill superhero art.

  12. After this I release I’m just not a Fraction or Fantastic Four fan, I didn’t even like Hickman’s run so I don’t know why I thought I would enjoy this.It’s just meh to me 2/5 PASS,but Bagley’s is still a badazz .

  13. “realize”

  14. I was excited for this…….I didnt love the story but who knows maybe it’ll catch me in an issue or two…….Bagleys art was awesome as usual though.

  15. I’m so glad to have Mark Bagley on Fantastic Four.
