It's not a backlash when the books are so bleah. You're only as good as your latest book anyway, in some respects, as far as reviews of floppies go. You can only coast on rep for so long. Most of them had been fairly apologetic for not liking FF much, as Hickman must be setting the stage for his grand plan possibly, only it's not very satisfying to read.
After so many "not very satisfying to read" single issues, a call must be made if you're a reviewer, I would think. CBR and Comics Bulletin come to mind offhand, but there were a couple others. The reaction here being remarkably similar. But all of those are very disparate sources to be termed a backlash.
In the end, though, that's empty semantics.
