Press Release: This August, 57 years to the day of the FANTASTIC FOUR’s original debut, Marvel’s First Family returns as the Fantastic Four make their dramatic homecoming to the Marvel Universe!
In celebration of the much-anticipated launch of FANTASTIC FOUR #1, Marvel is excited to reveal an existing piece of art from one of Fantastic Four’s best-known artists, the late Mike Wieringo—never before seen as a cover until now!
“It’s so exciting to see Mike’s work gracing another Marvel cover after 10 years,” said Mike’s brother, Matt Wieringo. “The Fantastic Four was one of his dream assignments, and I’m sure Mike would have been pleased to participate in the return of Marvel’s first family. And, as Mike’s biggest fan, it’s a genuine pleasure for me to see his art on the stands again.”
“As the artist of my favorite run editing FANTASTIC FOUR, it’s especially nice that the late, great Mike Wieringo can make a contribution to the launch of this new one,” added SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
Don’t miss the epic return of Johnny, Ben, Sue, and Reed on August 8th, when FANTASTIC FOUR #1 hits your local comic shop!
