...Thing go Bye bye o.o?

Posted by Lvenger

Not as bad as I was expecting Fraction to write the FF. Still I'm sticking with Indestructible Hulk and Superior Spider-Man.

I'm still on a Matt Fraction's hawkeye #3 high.

There killing off Thing?

I thought they already killed Human Torch!

I can tell just by this preview that is't going to be missing something once Hickman leaves. I may not even pick this up. I will defiantly pick up FF though, just for the sheer fact that the characters are so ridiculous.

I wish Hickman would write Fantastic Four for another 3 years. In this episode of A Comic Book Look I talk about how awesome Fantastic Four is.

Franklin is still a kid?

COMMMEEE ONN hes been a kid since FF vol 2 lol

I don't love the art, but I am going to give the first issue a try

Posted by jason1749

Wait, so FF does include a digital code? I thought $2.99 books didn't.

Maybe the Thing is shedding his shell like he did in the Ultimate universe.

Yawn....

Wait...so now Franklin and Valeria were with them during the original accident? Or am I just misinterpreting the first page? Why would you bring your kids on a space mission? Love Fraction's work usually, especially Hawkeye so far, but I have to admit I'm not really liking the look of this so far.

how much?

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

woo looks cool

Posted by MrArrogant

This series kinda seems like Lost in Space meets Doctor Who. Very excited for it, Fraction is a terrific writer, especially on a book filled with crazy ideas like this (FF especially) so I'm really looking forward to his run.

Edited by Smurfboy

Hm, not sure I'm feeling this one (story-wise), however I am sure it'll gets better in time. The artwork is nice. Very nice, indeed.

EDIT: I will definitely get FF #1. The group (She-Hulk, Medusa, Ant-Man and Miss Thing) is so interested! I am curious to see how they handle the job while original Fantastic Four is gone for the mission. Can't wait!

No in Franklin's panel it says Day Zero minus 365 meaning I think that in 365 days that first page will happen

I don't want to judge this by comparing it to Hickman, his is just too good, but this looks much better than Fraction's X-Men run. this looks really good.

Soo. Deadpool battle a dinosaur in new issue #1. The Fantastic Four battle a dinosaur in the new issue #1. I think I see a trend here!!

Posted by WinterFreakinSoldier

Fixed...

Posted by MisterKetch

This is better then I was expecting. Originally it sounded like Fraction was going to have them on some weird homeschooling journey forcing us to see month after month of them giving the kids time traveling facts. Still more interested in FF then this but who knows...

Posted by sparty-dbq

Doesn't Franklin seem a little old to still refer to his mother as "Mama?"

Posted by GundamHeavyarms

@sparty-dbq: Yeah, I always found that annoying, in Waids run he called Ben and Johnny "Unca" instead of "Uncle"

Same.

I really hope it's not just all part of Reed's kid's dream......

The first page says simply "Day Zero", which I interpreted to mean the day that the accident happened giving them their powers. Franklin and Val are with them in the image, which would be a new addition to the FF origin. I dont really mind them being considered as part of the team, and I like the idea of their uniforms having "5" and "6" on them(seen in a promotional image somewhere).

That can't be Thing going bye-bye on us...but man...I gotta check this out now! O_O

Hey is that the dinosaur that deadpool kills in the deadpool #1 preview??

Posted by AngeTheDude

Lame. I couldn't imagine a worse writer to follow Hickman.

Posted by RalfvdH

Art looks good... Always liked Mark Bagley (Actually he's the reason I started collecting comics in 1993,,,) So thats ok .... A little critic on the middle big panel on page 3 The left leg of Susan seems a bit short compared to the body.... but hey... artists are just humans too right.... :) YEE MARK BAGLEY :)

Posted by jloneblackheart

I hate to drop the one of my favorite books with my favorite characters - but I'll pass. Fraction is the deal breaker.

So Ben goes blue on the last panel and is human on the first. I would say it is the potion the FF made to make him human but that wouldn't last for 220 days.
