Marvel Previews 'FF' #4

If you haven’t picked up any of Jonathan Hickman’s run on Fantastic Four, then consider picking up on the newly launched FF. Hickman has his finger on what makes Marvel’s First Family charming and enduring, and he’s made us positive that Spider-Man’s inclusion on the team is not at all gimmicky.

Barry Kitson joins Hickman on the second arc later this month as the “War of the Four Cities” storyline begins (check out the artist's fine pages after the jump). If you haven’t been able to get enough of the FF, I would recommend picking the last few issues of Amazing Spider-Man by Dan Slott. I’ll admit, the tone is significantly more light-hearted, but Slott’s understanding of these iconic characters feels true to the best of what has come before it.

Official Press Release

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at FF #4, from chart-topping creators Jonathan Hickman and Barry Kitson! It’s all led to this – the War of Four Cities starts here! From all corners of the Marvel Universe – Atlantis, the Negative Zone, Subterranea, and the Inhuman Citadel – a torrent of destruction led by the FF’s greatest foes is about tear across the globe and only the Future Foundation can oppose it. But in this gravest of hours, will Dr. Doom finally redeem himself or use the warring factions to finally achieve his life’s dream – one world united beneath his own iron fist? The firefight for the future of the Marvel Universe begins this May, only in FF #4!
