Matt Fraction Reveals Details on Future of FANTASTIC FOUR

Posted by k4tzm4n (39484 posts) - - Show Bio

It's tough to believe anyone could really relate on a deep level with the Fantastic Four. The superhero family run by super-genius Mr. Fantastic has traveled the cosmos and seen things that would make us need a new pair of underwear. However, at the end of the day, they're still just a close family, and writer Matt Fraction is able to draw a lot of inspiration for his work right in his very own home.

His family might not have super strength or the ability to control fire, but the writer of HAWKEYE manages to see bits and pieces of Marvel's classic family within the people he loves. He even drops a bit of a spoiler. It looks like Reed Richards won't be the only one who's sick...

Watch the full video from MTV Geek below for all the details.

Loving FF aswell. Fraction's really hitting his prime it seems with his current bunch of comics.

Having just started getting hardcore into the original Stan and Jack's series, I might have to look into getting this series and maybe FF as well. Provided they are left out of the bi-monthly HUGE GIANT CROSSOVER EVENT!!! that Marvel has every few weeks. Hell with that.

I was very nervous when I first heard Fraction was taking over from Hickman but so far I have loved the first 2 issues and really like the direction he is going with the team.

Also I think its really cool seeing that he relates so heavily with the team.

While Fraction's X-Men run was pretty average to me aside from a few highlights and story bumps, I'm loving his FF, F4, and Hawkeye runs. Hell, Marvel Now as a whole is pretty good, IMO. If only DC took this approach to refreshing their line and characters instead of quasi-rebooting everything.

Fraction on FF and F4 is a great follow up to Hickman. It sounds like it's going to be a big space adventure, which sounds great.

Fraction seems to be doing fine with FF so far and his plan seems solid to me.

I'm becoming a fraction fan due to the ff fam and hawkguy books.
