Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Still liking this, but may switch to trades soon.

  2. I like this a lot, but trade waiting is in the horizon.

  3. This story continues to pull me back every month.  It’s the on the top of my stack each time.

  4. This and X-Force have brought me back to Marvel.

  5. More Doom and Council of Reeds?

    This run keeps getting better and better. 

  6. Wasn’t expecting another issue so soon, so it was a nice surprise to see this among the list of new comics. Really looking forward to this. Hickman and Epting are doing a fantastic job.

  7. @nudebuddha -This, X force, and ASM have brought me back to Marvel. I’m loving this series a lot. can’t wait!

  8. enjoying this so far

  9. Glad to hear you guys are liking this. I subscribed, which means #’s 2 & 3 must be on their way to me. I just saw the mailman, so who knows?

  10. I have really, really been enjoying this title. I’ve honest to god never read a Fantastic Four book in my life but I wanted to see Spidey hop on board, and haven’t been let down yet. 

  11. I never read it either, before Hickman came on. He has made the whole concept so much more enticing than ever before. Long may it continue and no, I can’t bring myself to trade wait either, even though it would be lovely to have this in hard back form.

  12. Didn’t FF #2 just come out ?  Between this and Uncanny X Force. They are always coming out , and that is a good thing.

  13. I’m sure I only got #2 a week ago? The end of #2 caught me by surprise so this is definitely a must-buy this week.

    (What do we actually call this title? I called it Fantastic Four at my local shop and the owner shot me down saying that it’s now called Future Foundation. Or is it just FF (for both)?) 

  14. @midwinter  It’s FF. Stands for Future Foundation. There is no Fantastic Four at the moment.

  15. @conor
    Isn’t it both? Check the chart at the back of FF #1.

  16. FF# 2 was an amazing issue. I can’t wait for this one.

  17. @NawidA, @conor:  It’s also “First Family.”

  18. I love this story far to much to stop.

  19. @PozrDu, @conor, @NawidA: According to Word Balloon, it’s also “Franklin F##cker.”

  20. this is definitely a twice read issue. I got a bit lost towards the end with all the jumping around. I dug it, even though i didn’t fully get it. 

  21. I am not a Huge Hickmanite but this was damn good. 

  22. I need to go back and re-read the War of the Four Cities arc to see where the Light Brigade’s suicide mission fits in to the timeline set up here.

  23. Perhaps there’s no Fantastic Four at the moment, but hey, Fantastic Four left off at 588…just 12 issues shy of 600.  I find it hard to imagine that in 9 more months they wont be celebrating the 600th issue.   Just sayin’…

  24. @Skyfire124  Maybe get another 16 months out of this…

    616 Anniversary Issue!

    But yeah, yours makes more sense.

  25. Someone needs to PUT Valeria in a headlock-really cant stand her

  26. Never, Valeria’s awesome.  Her common sense has yet to catch up to her intelligence, but that’s not particularly surprising because she’s just a kid.  Better that she should have some personality than just be a wallflower.

  27. My attention got lost in this issue and I didn’t really have enough interest to find my way out. I loved the first two issues, but this one? Not so much. Enjoyed the art. So far the series is good enough for me to forgive one issue that didn’t land well with me. Here’s to FF#4…

  28. I liked this quite a bit. Now, I am not a huge Marvel reader and am not that fimiliar with my FF history. I don’t know a World Builder from an Ascension Engine. I wouldn’t know the Mad Thinker if he came up and kicked me. At first, I was like “Who? Hunh?” But I could read between the lines enough to know these are bad guys (I DO know who AIM and The Wizard are). And once Hickman let me in on why they were invited to come up with a plan to defeat Reed Richards, I was hooked. Really excellent writing. Usually not knowing these details would bug me, but Hickman delivered in a way that drew me in and interested me. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the next Grant Morrison if he continues on the path he’s on. I really think in terms of execution he may already be better, at least in his work on this title.

  29. Great issue.  You mean to tell me that Reed Richards with the Infinity Gauntlet can’t find his way home?  Were those two AIM guys their top dogs?  Love these classic characters, like Diablo and the High Evolutionary, coming to play together.  The Watcher showing up was ridiculous in a good way.  Wish my ‘cereblocum’ worked that way too.  My only gripe is the Thing doesn’t need the wife-beater, he’d look coolah with just the pants.

  30. I am absolutely loving this book.

  31. I like the premise but there are too many talking head scenes!  Hickman needs to learn how to write more action packed comics.  This issue was really boring.
