The FF and the Avengers are brought to their knees, and only the Brothers Grimm can save the day!

Comic WatchFantastic Four #13 comes at just the right time. The issue is a detour into lighthearted fun that precedes the team’s return to New York in the next issue. It’s smart timing on North’s part, and the entire creative team delivers.
AIPTFantastic Four #13 is tons of fun, thanks to the art, the dinosaurs, and a healthy dose of Dr. Doom.
ComicBook.comThe two-part story featuring a Dinosaur-themed vision of Marvel superheroes is a roaring good success and the best entry in the current Fantastic Four run by far. Fantastic Four #13 returns the perspective to Earth as The Thing finds his human Avengers battling the dinosaur FF just as two Dooms encounter one another. The new mix of characters and problems provides plenty of new challenges, which are addressed with the cleverness that has defined Ryan North's scripts from page one. What's surprising in this adventure is how much the spotlight rests on The Thing and to excellent effect. Every member of the team has a relationship with Doom after so many decades of arch-villainy and The Thing's is perhaps the most comical. It plays to outstanding effect in these dinosaur comics. Fantastic Four #12 and #13 serve as a model for this incarnation's potential with an abundance of colorful ideas reflecting challenges that require more than bombastic battles and a strong focus on familial relationships – if only Thing's head didn't appear like a volleyball unattached to his tose. I'm already anticipating re-reading this particular adventure, though.

Un Cómic MásFun closing of this story that leaves everything ready for the possible closure of this saga. Art is magnificent, full of details, very illuminated where it manages to merge the dinosaurs with the Marvel Universe with total fluidity.
The Comicbook DispatchFantastic Four #13 concludes the story where the Fantastic Four encounter a world of Dinosaur counterparts, and of course Dr. Doom meets his own dino double and the two team up to try taking over both universes. The comic isn’t the most action-packed story out there, but it has fun dialogue thanks to the writing for the characters, and the art from Iban Coello is great as always with bringing these characters to life and making the comic look cool. The only downside is that the comic doesn’t do much with the concept of the heroes and villains teaming up with their dinosaur counterparts to stop the two Dooms. However, the comic book is still a fun read.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsFantastic Four #13 concludes the interdimensional dino adventure with a Doom plot that spells doom for the universe. North’s action/adventure plot is excellent (barring a glaring plot hole), and Coello’s art looks fantastic (barring a glaring character design problem).
