I’ve read the Fantastic Four on and off ever since I started reading
comics but this has to be the first time that I’ve been excited about a
new FF run. Don’t get me wrong, there’s been some great runs over the
years and the book has been really good recently but the FF has never
received a lot of attention and buzz and I’ve always loved that about
the book because it’s great to have a solid book but some really good
stories have been told in Fantastic Four lately and you also want
people to take notice of that.

That being said, Millar and Hitch
do a great job and making fans excited about the Fantastic Four again.
I was worried about the Ultimate team moving over to the FF because
it’s Marvel’s first family and I want it to stay that way. Millar is
known for being over the top and pretty mature and that’s something
that I don’t want to see in a Fantastic Four book and I’m happy to say
that this has the makings of a great family based FF run.

seems to have a great grasp and appreciation for the characters and it
really shines through in the book. The personalities are spot on and
there are several moments in this issue that made me laugh at loud.
I’ve never had a single bad thing to say about Bryan Hitch and I still
don’t. His art is amazing, I love his facial expressions and his detail
is astounding! There is a page towards the end of the book that is

This was a great comic book and something that you
don’t see in the industry too often. The Fantastic Four represents the
softer side of superhero comics and that’s probably why it never stands
out and I hope Millar and Hitch will bring new readers on board. This
was just a fun read and it made me feel like I was 10 years old again,
being in awe of these great superheros and wishing I had an uncle
Johnny and uncle Ben.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. I want an uncle Johnny and Uncle Ben.

  2. Great review.  Couldn’t agree more.  Even though McDuffy did a good job, the Panther/Storm stuff hurt him.  This is the real FF.
