“Matt and Mark are taking the world’s greatest family of science-adventurers on a road trip through every conceivable corner of the Marvel Universe,” said Axel Alonoso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “It’s a long and winding road, filled with friends and foes, both old and new, and challenges unlike anything they’ve ever faced.  What doesn’t break the Richards family will only make it stronger.”

“The Fantastic Four is the cornerstone of the Marvel Universe. It’s an honor and privilege to carry on playing in such a fertile field. Some of Marvel’s brightest and best did some of their most amazing work with the Richards family and I’m thrilled to get my crack at Marvel’s first family,” explained Fraction. “We’re going to new places, seeing new things, and having all new adventures — aside from Reed, Sue, and the rest, EVERYTHING else will be brand new.”

An all-new direction! All-new adventures! This is the Fantastic Four NOW!

This November, Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley redefine what it means to be fantastic in Fantastic Four #1!

Mark Bagley has always had a John Byrne style to his artwork, so he’s a great choice for Fantastic Four. These comics are the next stop on Matt Fraction writing the entire Marvel Universe.

This November, the fight for the future takes shape in FF #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of Eisner Award winning creators Matt Fraction and Michael Allred! As part of Marvel NOW!FF joins a number of titles that will take the Marvel Universe in an exciting all-new direction, as the industry’s top creators join the top Super Heroes to deliver all-new ongoing series, great for new and lapsed readers alike!

With the Fantastic Four embarking on an epic journey, an all-new substitute Four, handpicked by original members – Ant-Man, She-Hulk, Medusa, and Miss Thing – stand ready to guard and protect Earth and the Future Foundation for four minutes! What could possibly go wrong?

“The FF is a chance to radically remix and reinvent the familiar aspects of the Fantastic Four and the Future Foundation into something all new and wild,” explains Fraction. “Standing on its own but interlinked with Fantastic Four, the all-new FF will be doing things the Fantastic Four could only dream of before.”

“What — you didn’t actually think Reed would leave the Baxter Building unprotected during the Richards’ family’s epic road trip, did you?” said Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment.  “Someone’s got to guard the fort, and Reed’s handpicked replacement team — courtesy of Matt and Mike’s unique creative synergy – is truly fantastic in its own right.  Facing a relentless siege of villains with bones to pick, this team quickly realizes that the best defense against certain, uhm, Doom, is a good offense.”

“Not only does every book with the Marvel NOW! logo feature a new superstar creative team and blockbuster story, but they also come with all-new incentives for our retailer partners,” explained David Gabriel, Senior Vice-President of Sales, Marvel Entertainment.. “We want to make sure every comic shop nationwide is fully stocked to meet the high demand we’re already seeing for Marvel NOW!
