After the excellent and heartfelt last issue of Fantastic Four, Hickman continues his recent hot streak with a very funny issue of FF. This issue doesn’t focus on the kids, but on Spider-Man and Human Torch as roommates, which of course has predictably disastrous results. It was great seeing Peter and Johnny play out ‘the odd couple’ and how Hickman threw in crazy concepts like a door to the Negative Zone in the closet. Dragotta’s art was excellent, especially in the wordless sequence where Peter, Johnny and the Light Brigade went on a Magic Mare’s Milk-fuelled bender. And that last page! Amazing, I never thought I’d see Annihilus taking a dump. Hickman proves here that when he cuts loose and stops being so portentous and just writes a fun comic… he’s got what it takes.

The story itself was pretty predictable with Johnny's escalations and the art wasn't all that good (it hardly looked like Peter most of the time).

I thought one of the points of Johnny spending years in the Negative Zone was to 'mature' him. This issue shows nothing but regression.

Is Spider-Man's secret ID known again? Otherwise I can't imagine how suspicion wouldn't be aroused with him rooming with a nobody like Peter Parker.

Loved this issue. I really hope Johnny banged MJ, I think that would be a great storyline.

It's been established that the two know each other.

That's straight up crazy talk.

The art was fantastic.

I recommend walking upright and using that opposable thumb from time to time and eventually you'll get Hickman.
