Variant and homage covers can be cool but sometimes they really awesome.

How many people buy variant covers these days? There are those that try to grab them all but it's really a matter of how cool the variant is, especially if it means forking over extra money. Marvel has revealed another variant for FF #1 by Arthur Adams. I've always been blown away by Adams' work and this one is amazing, as expected. Throw in the fact that it's a homage to FANTASTIC FOUR (vol. 1) #1, it becomes that much cooler.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at legendary artist, Arthur Adams’ stunning variant cover to FF #1! No fan can miss this jaw dropping variant featuring the all-new substitute Four, Ant-Man, She-Hulk, Medusa, and Ms. Thing!

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!

It looks nice but I think I prefer the other cover!

Great homage. The Miss thing character looks better on this cover :P

This an awesome cover! and I would buy this one over the normal one (if I actually had the money).

Love this cover. She-things looks very good here... but I'd have prefered Crystal on the team :(

I love how the old cover of Fantastic Four has less cheesy dialogue than the new FF

Posted by Ett

I really hope this book is going to have light hearted goofy adventures like the Fantastic four did in the beginning.

Arthur Adams. 'Nuff said!

I am excited for this book!

first off the Thing looks like he's made of poop, not rocks.

second off, if a giant monster erupts from the earth, why is Mr. Fantastic tied up?

Certainly seems like it. The preview yesterday got me a little excited for this book. Fraction alone is enough of a draw for me though tbh.

both covers are great! +2

I winder why they are pushing this series so much harder than the other Marvel Now titles. It looks good though.

Posted by GR2Blackout

Still looks lame to me.

I mean, seriously! "Miss Thing"?

Posted by Or35ti

I love this cover way more than the standard one. They should make this one standard, it would attract a lot more attention I believe.

Marvel NOW! is bad. I could foster off a thesis upon that sentiment - however the prevailing theme is best boiled down to my first sentence.

Posted by skyjumpermike

I'm getting this cover for sure! And, everyone needs to get over Miss Thing.

I love this! Adams' art just made me like thier costumes!!!

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

Love this, I cannot wait till this comes out. Next week? When does it come out? I really want to know.

This sounds like such a fun comic, we need more fun comics and fun art.

So we have found out that Miss Thing is a performer in a Thing costume. Wonder how she ends up on the team then.

I have the biggest crush on Miss Thing!

She Hulk is going to bust a move! Wow.

Arthur Adams can draw a homage cover featuring turds and it'll be awesome.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Love it!

How is ropes a good trap for a guy who can bend any way he wants, and can solve the rubiks cube in 3 seconds.

In defense of the name, "Miss Thing" works a LOT better than "She-Thing"

It works for me because the term "Miss Thing" or "Miss Thang" was used in Sir Mix-a-Lot's Baby Got Back.

Great cover. Arthur Adams needs to make posters.

Posted by Meteorite

I'm liking this cover, but I still think that the best FF #1 homage I've seen is What If? #36

Edited by Fantasgasmic

I'm usually all about being stubbornly resistant to change and hating things based on first impressions, but this looks GREAT!

Posted by skyjumpermike

@thespideyguy: it must be like a strands of christmas lights.

Posted by AlKusanagi

So Miss thing is basically supposed to be a bimbo in power armor? Okay, fine, but what's the point of having her AND She-Hulk on the same team?

Posted by Cafeterialoca

Please buy this book people!

I wish I could ad this to my pull.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Gotta love homage covers. I rather like that one by Adams!

Posted by dreamfall31

Well....I love this cover and want to collect the Allred variants for the first 4 issues...looks like I'll be double dipping a few issues!

Posted by Mezmero

The cover looks great. I still can't get over that dumb Thing suit. Why does it even have segmented toes? If it's a suit why not just have boots for feet? Looking forward to a review for this series on the site in the future.

This is GREAT.
