- The only movie that Reed likes to watch more than once is Josie and the Pussycats (he likes the "fractal shape of the screenplay").
- Johnny likes to say Catcher in the Rye is his favorite fictional text, but it's really Beach Volleyball Inferno.
- Ben's favorite book is apparently Of Mice and Men
- Willie Lumpkin is the most well-read man the Fantastic Four know (not counting the Watcher)
- Reed: "E.W.'s box office rankings, out today -- Nobody went to the movies this week. Literally. Apart from documentaries. There's footage of Michael Moore jumping up and down."
- And my favorite, in the Universe of Fiction, when Ben discovers they have to save the Dashwood sisters from nightmare monsters: "It's a truth universally acknowledged... that it's clobberin' time!"
(This comic book was released on July 30, but I didn't get mine until yesterday...)
