I'm not caught up on Hickman's run, but I do plan to get caught up on it after the digiital prices drop (especially for #600, I'm not paying $8, that's lunacy) should I wait until I'm caught up or just start FF 1? Is there much in the way of spoilers other than Johnny being alive and well again?
I hate to do this but I thought it was garbage. That's the best I can do at the moment.

Never cared for some of his human faces but Allred's art has a charm to it I can usually enjoy.
Honest, I enjoyed this issue, it showed me that Fraction wouldn't be abandoning some of the characters I liked in the previous FF book and he knew the history of some of the characters. The only down side I have is that I dislike the recent Scott Lang as Ant-Man push and the fact that he looks to be a major character of the book. I actually enjoyed it more then Fractions Fantastic Four #1.
Surprised and pleased to say that I really enjoyed this! I was dubious after being underwhelmed by Fantastic Four #1, but this clicked for me much better, and has made me more optimistic about Fraction helming the franchise. Feels like an intro issue, yes, but it's reasonable to spend a #1 issue on introductions for a cast as large as this, and it doubles as a demo that he's got characterisations in mind for all the kids, so it was still interesting as a returning reader.
Allred's art can be variable for me (sometimes I really love it, sometimes it comes off a bit too simplified like in some of the FF covers we've seen) but here it mostly comes down in the love column. Now I'm a bit sad he's not going to be handling the classic F4 more, since I really like his version of Reed.
