Awful review is awful.
This is one of the best #1's I've seen in years. Imminently enjoyable, amazing artwork, moments that made me chuckle, and moments that made me a bit sad (I still feel bad for what happened to Scott)

Yep, there is a whole reviews team and we each feel differently about the books. My review of FF doesn't have to align with the Fantastic Four review because those weren't my thoughts - though to be open, I didn't mind Fantastic Four, it had a kid-friendly vibe. I also didn't review Batman #14 so my review doesn't have to line up against that. I try to make all MY reviews comparable but if I had to align with 5 other people who I dis/agree with quite often then I'd never be able to piece together my thoughts for the world to read hate :)
I also think that considering I was talking about my opinion of the book then I know a lot about it. My opinion won't be the same as others, I'm sure yours isn't the same any any array of ten people I could assemble into a room, but I think that's fine.
I hope you'll continue to enjoy the site, enjoy FF, and have a great day.

I'm surprised that Reed isn't taking the Future Foundation with him. I thought he said in Fantastic Four they were going with him.

No, Reed on the pretense this an "family" outing is really looking for a cure for him and the the other FF (and I would think to help Scott L. and the death of Cassie through the kids)
I'm tentatively taking the step into monthly issues and trying to pick books that give me bang for my limited buck and I really enjoyed this having read nothing of Hickman's run. Sure there was barely any plot progression, but it offered loads of fun scenes and lovely character moments. Is it a crime to not shove the reader straight into the action? For me, there's nothing wrong with a movie's plot not kicking in for twenty minutes or so, so why should it be different for comics? I get it's a competitive market and there's an urge for books to open firing on all cylinders, but opening a book with solid character moments like this can also be satisfying.
If you think this is over then you're wrong
It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.
Enjoyed this issue very much. Now I'm terribly conflicted whether or not to include the companion title Fantastic Four in my pull-list. I know it's been established that you can enjoy either without the other, but would you recommend that I have both titles in my pull so I could maximize my enjoyment of each? I'm not familiar with Matt Fraction's material too much so I'm a little wary.

Never read FF before, i gave this one a shot.
Didn't hate it. I am strongly considering sticking to it AS LONG AS IT COMES OUT ONLY ONCE A MONTH
I can't afford getting this book otherwise...
Still it was a little slow, also i don't know what to think of the supporting cast... in thar regard the characterization was pretty weak, maybe it's because i don't get the whole concept behind the FF.
some kids (moloids and the other race which look like fishes, also Leech & Artie) seem to be just retarded... no offense, but i don't see the point of them being into a group for gifted youngs.. they seem to have no idea why they r there.
So, never read F4 before either... not my kind of stuff. But i might stick to this one, i like Scott Lang and really hope to see some DR DOOM in the future
I guess that's a good start then, i'll get issue #2 for sure.
