  1. Inhumans ! Sign me up baby!

  2. This book still kicks ass even if Epting isn’t on it. Kitson was a very good replacement last issue.

  3. Love this book but STEVE EPTING WHERE ARE YOUUUU?!?!?!?!

  4. This has been fantastic so far and I am really enjoying the Council of Doom

  5. @keith7198  Next issue will be Greg Tocchini who also did the appalling art on Batman & Robin #24.

  6. @martinNL  
    Tocchini is not a bad artist. I quite enjoyed his work in Last Days of American Crime.

  7. @martinNL  Yes, the Marvel double shipping strikes again! It forces third string artists into action. I am seriously not a fan of so much watering down of book quality. The writers tend to hold up a little better, but I think they suffer from it as well. Hopefully Hickman keeps his ship righted.

  8. @JimBilly4  – Tocchini is a good artist, but may not be right for this. I loved Barry Kitson. I kind of like his “none-costumed” people better than Epting’s.

  9. Haven’t seen Kitson since his Legion run, was pleasantly surprised at how much i still liked his art, really think he fits better on FF than Epting

  10. Loving this title!


    Of course if Black Bolt screamed an 80’s “yeah”, the universe would implode on itself due to his infinite power.

  12. Dammit. Not a fan of Hickman’s run so much, but I may have to get this for my man Blackagar.

  13. Yes, please. 

  14. This was a pretty good issue, but nothing really stood out like the last couple of issues. I wish we could have more Barry Kitson and not Greg Tocchini….


  15. When & where was Blackbolt resurrected?

  16. Just saw a preview for Tocchini’s work on FF #7.  It reminded me of Valentine DeLandro’s X-Factor meaning if FF was a noir title it would be ok.  Unfortunately, not so much.  

  17. I missed Daniel Acuna as the cover artist and Epting. Kitson did pretty good here though. Hickman never fails to impress.

  18. I really wanted more info about the return of Black Bolt how, when and where. Maybe next month

  19. Whoa, awesome issue. I think this is Kitson at his best! He can be Epting’s fill-in guy again and you will hear no complaints from me.

  20. quick question; is this series any good?

  21. good stuff as usual. 

  22. I have been loving this however for whatever reason this issue didn’t click with me. Maybe because of so many other great books this week.

  23. I thought Medusa was the inhumans head monarch after Black Bolt died in War of Kings.  What book did they bring him back in?  Or are those inhumans skrulls?  Is it skrulls again already 😛

  24. @snappants.  That’s exactly what I thought.  I read all of the DnA cosmic stuff and I don’t know how/when Black Bolt came back.  Anybody know?

  25. I guess im missing something here, but so far FF has been completley boring to me. This is my last issue.

  26. Kitson did an awesome job this issue. Super sharp looking and he did a great job of making Sue look sexy! If Epting is too slow I’d be happy keeping Kitson on full time.

  27. Black Bolt’s comeback IS this issue. The explanation for his return will be in FF#6. Now I just have to wait for Nova and Star-Lord’s return.
