When Marvel canceled Fantastic 4 comics, the cry out from fans was subtle. Most comic book readers felt that the Fantastic Four was dragging its feet & lacked a strong presence in the comics. It was last year that Fantastic Four comic book writer Jonathan Hickman revealed that Marvel’s public announcement that Marvel’s claim that the lack of audience was the reason they canceled the Fantastic Four was a lie. In fact, Hickman said that the issue was over film rights.
Well, Marvel is giving the first family a second chance this summer. It was announced today that The new Fantastic Four comic book will be written by Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man) with art by Sara Pichelli (Ultimate Spider-Man). The new comic book will release this August! Take a look at the video announcement & picture below!
