  1. “Who speaks for man?” When I first saw this cover I thought they were revisiting those under water folks – from the war of four cities? Was it the Uhari? I get my race names mixed up.

    Anyways, Fraction said on his tumblr – that this issue sees a fairly big over-haul for Sue’s back story. Looking forward to it.

  2. So far I’ve enjoyed this, but I do hope the pace starts to pick up.

  3. This has been a fun book, and the Fantastic Four always deliver. it looks like the pace will pick up in March when we get 4 issues every other week…

  4. The coloring on that cover is amazing.

    Love what Fraction has been doing on this and FF.

  5. By subscription.

    I need to catch up on my NOW! reading and decide which titles I’m keeping for another 12 issues.

  6. Good issue; not every book I read needs to have wall-to-wall action. That being said, I do hope this picks up a little bit but Fraction’s writing has been strong. I liked seeing the dynamic between Sue and Reid as a married couple.

  7. I really liked this issue. The flashbacks were particularily well written.

  8. I’ve been thinking about dropping this book since Fraction took over. However this issue has changed my mind for now. I like the idea of exploring Reed and Sue’s marriage.

  9. I thought this was alright. My only real problem with this run so far is that the first five issues amount to: Reed is sick, let’s go on an adventure, we are now on an adventure. I’m being terse, but really none of the character dynamics being explored are remotely new. There hasn’t even been any developments regarding Reed’s search for a cure. I guess I’m being pessimistic, but I hope this improves; because as it stands the only thing compelling me to keep with this story is that I like the F4, and that might not be enough.

  10. Nice issue. I really liked the twist, very sweet. I think the focus on the family works well, especially knowing that there is an elephant in the room in the form of Reed’s real motivation, and how not everyone is happy about the trip. I feel bad for Ben. Flashbacks were well done. I’m sure some action is on the menu, but for now I’m just enjoying this book for what it is.

  11. This has been the best issue so far of Fractions run. If this is the tone that this series is going to take, I’m on board!
