    1. This is a tough one for me – I havent been buying the Age of Ultron story – Fraction’s FF has been good, but his F4 has been merely ok, AND this one is a dollar more expensive than the regular issues….

      BUT! The art in the previews looked interesting. Game day decision for me.

    2. I am in the same boat. I hate to miss on anything F4, but I don’t know if a $4 book that is a tie-in to something I don’t follow is a sound decision. I agree, I will probably have to flip through it and decide if I “need” it…

    3. I think I will be buying this based on Andre Aruajo’s art alone. He drew some of my favorite FF issues.

    4. I’ll buy it because I’m following both Fantastic Four and Age of Ultron and I like what Fraction is doing on both FF titles.

    5. By subscription.

      Hoping I enjoy it, but budgetary concerns mean I’m dropping it after the first 12 issues.

    6. What the holy crap!? I’m not reading Age of Ultron but I kinda want to now. I really want to see how this will tie itself in to the next issue of F4 at all! Or will it not at all? I would like to see how things come back together for the F4.

      This was such a starkly different issue compared to the rest of the issues, but I liked it a lot. And the art was pretty damn good.

    7. Well, holy crap, that was AMAZING….but what the hell? AoU HAS to be taking place in a parallel universe, otherwise this makes NO sense. I guess we’ll see with issue #6, if at all….

      Aruajo is a beast. The closest we’ll get to Moebius doing F4….

    8. The more I think about it the less I like the writing part of this. I know Reed is a man of science and all that – but why would he elect to lay on his very young children the whole “there is no god, no hell, blah blah” thing, moments after they’ve been informed that they are possibly dead? The ‘what we do doesn’t matter, so all that matters is what we do’ thing isn’t particularly fresh and unique – and there might be a more elegant way of trying to inspire them to keep keeping on, in the case of the worst.

      Also, who leaves their very young children, even as bright as Val is, alone in time and space – with nothing in place to help or protect them in the case they don’t come back? I mean they went through the trouble to record hastily thrown together video wills.

      And its hard to take the very random confession of Ben’s seriously.

      The Sue Storm I am familiar with would not leave her children floating alone in time and space thinking their family could be dead.

    9. I really hope/want this issue to be great. This is the issue that will make or break this book for me. It has been pretty bland so far, and I love these characters. Matt Fraction is just hit or miss for me.
