First Look: FF #1

What happens after the Human Torch dies?


We still have one more issue of Fantastic Four before the book ends. After that we'll see the new team and direction in FF #1, on sale March 23. 
 
The new series is written by the same team that brought you Fantastic Four: THREE, Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting. Variant covers will be by Daniel Acuna, Steve Goldberg, Marko Djurdjevic and Paolo Rivera. There will also be a blank cover available so you can have your favorite artist sketch something at the next con you attend.  
 
In the wake of the Human Torch's heroic sacrifice, Marvel's first family has re-emerged as the Future Foundation. Spider-Man is their newest teammate, but who else has signed up to protect the future from itself? What does their presence portend for the world at large? We can witness the mind-blowing birth of the new super-team that will change everything this March. 
 
Here is a six page preview to get ready for the fun.

I'm so not excited for this
Posted by Yumulu

... Well there just no way that Spidy stay on the FF4 as a long time replacement. So how much issues do you guys give him?

Posted by ComicMan24

I like the black variant of Sue's costume.

Posted by AndyPhifer

Great new uniforms. I'm a fan.

11. Since issue 12 would be Fantastic Four #600, which I can see Johnny being revived for.

Obviously Johnny shall return eventually, reborn in the flames of PHOENIX!!

TRUTH!
 
His art on Captain America blew me away and its doing the same here. This is going to be the first time in a long time that Ive been excited about an FF title. Too bad it had to come at the expend of the Human Torch.

Hickman's a genius...if he's writing it then I'm reading it

i was thinking the same thing 
 
 
 
 
 
I think im gonna have to start picking these up in TPB
Posted by Mumbles

nothing to make me want to continue to reading...

Posted by sora_thekey

Okay! 
Having Spider-Man join as a request from Johnny in his will makes more sense than just having Peter join the FF. 
 
I like it!

Those uniforms wither they are the white or black look sick. I am guessing Spidey is getting over his I am not a team player phobia. This I might actually pick up.

Posted by Midnight Monk

Been a long time since I've been relatively exciting for the FF but after reading the "Three" story arc, I felt that Hickmen was really taking these guys to the level they've always deserved and seeing Johnny die I admit it felt real rather than forced. Hopefully Hickmen's run with FF remain for quite a long time before Marvel lets another writer ruin it

Foxy sue lol!

Posted by iAmZero

Who else thinks that Sue will have an affair with Peter, and that Johnny will come back to life in a few years time?

Posted by Duo_forbidden

Will give this a look just because of Spider-man.

Horrible.... sucks

Posted by leokearon

Seems to be interesting so far
Posted by red_rover

Sue is really being transparent   with her feelings there.  Yep, these are the jokes people.

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

i knew it Sue wants him sooooooo bad, Bitches love Spider-Man. 
 
 
and having johnny specifically request for Pete to join is like THE absolute best and sweetest idea ever

 are you reading my mind, or are you just that brilliant because that will be the absolute awesomeness.
Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I LOVE IT.  Its like a last will and testament of Human Torch.  He asks in his will for them to do this, and to add Peter on the team, how can you refuse this even if it wont work or last too long.  I love the idea.  I will buy it.  (all i read was torch's message to reed.)

Posted by alphamale73

I don't really care for the art. Too much realism just doesn't work for me in comics.

Posted by frogjitsu

This is so great!  Can't wait.  I like how they are like, "For all you haters out there, Peter joining the team was Johnny's idea, so how can you not accept it?"    I swear, I haven't been this excited about the FF since Mark Waid's and Mike Wieringo's run.  Also, love Peter's and Sue's interactions.  So much to look forward to.

Posted by the_fallen11

wait, was Sue hitting on spiderman?
Posted by sonic5328

I hope Sue isn't hitting on Spidey. They have always had like a brother sister or mother son relationship.

Posted by Backflip

Wow, the art is brilliant. I adore the costume designs.
 
Oh, and as if it hasn't been said enough times, Hickman is a total genius. I love the guy.

Posted by brewski420

Can't wait for this!

Posted by Shadowdoggy

I dont' think she was hitting on him 
she knows him 
he was good friends with her brother 
I just think she's being nice 
lord knows Namor's been barking up that tree for a million years to no avail 
I'm stoked for this run 
and I really do like the costumes
Edited by TheMadMonkey

Okay... 
I'll admit that I don't have my finger on the pulse of all that goes on at The Mouse Of Ideas, but I was under the impression that no one knew Spider-Man's identity anymore.  (Edit: Sincere thanks to frogjitsu for PMing me and clarifying this for me.)
Also... 
As memory serves, Namor and Sue did hook up back in the early-mid 90s.  I distinctly remember an issue of Namor (drawn by Geof Isherwood) where, in the aftermath of Reed's "death", Sue ended up in Namor's bed.  This was when Ben had that scar on his face (courtesy of Wolverine) and Reed wasn't dead, he was just trapped in Doom's armor...somehow...

Posted by Shadowdoggy
@TheMadMonkey:
well, she did think he was dead 
and she was wearing very slutty clothes during that time period 
it was a phase ;)

LOL. Genius.  
My type of jokes.

Posted by RalfvdH

Spidey is almost family and he still still doesn't know where the door is??

 Spidey told the Fantastic Four and the New Avengers again after he had the world forget who he was.

Maybe in fanboys' dreams.
Posted by Hellos

I like this preview. 
Johnny's little message "Like the Second best Super Hero ever" was nice and Sue is looking hawt.
Posted by Doctor!!!!!

Spidey the new member of the Fantastic Four.... the suit looks cooler than the amazing bag-man!
Posted by Mutant God

who is that waving at them in the last picture?
Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I think this series is going to be great and this preview shows that 

Posted by GundamHeavyarms

I dont think she was hitting on him, though I could see how that could be interpreted.  Sue has always come off to me as kind of a tease anyway.

Posted by JonesDeini

Love Hickman's writing, and like the art...hmmm, color me intrigued.

Posted by dementedtheclown

YOU BET, Spider Man's COMING INSIDE. Cause Sue's ENTRANCE IS WIDE OPEN.
no pun intended...

Posted by brendon277

I'm not the biggest fan of spiderman but this is actually better than i expected it to be

Posted by mewmdude77

Only look at the last page and take out the last panel and that is sue telling Spidey to do her and him saying hell yes!! That sue is such a cougar! I bet that would make johnny wish he hadn't suggested Spidey! How could Spidey cheat on Ms. Marvel?!?! Ok Serious time: I like how they had Johnny say in his will that they should have Spidey join. It shows how well of a friendship Spidey had with Johnny and the Fantastic Four! Also I think they know Spidey's identity since Sue called him young man and how Johnny called him Peter!!!
