Will it be...special?


Fantastic Four Cosmic Special
I know this isn't really a preview as it's just one image.  It didn't seem big enough to post in the news section.  They need to get saved by the kids?  Didn't that sorta just happen in the Secret Invasion mini?  There dosen't really seem to be anything screaming at me to make me want to buy this.  We'll see.

The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine is about to go cosmic, thanks to comic book legend Cary Bates and artist Bing Cansino present the double-sized Fantastic Four Cosmic Special! When Reed and Ben return from an excursion in a pocket dimension they bring a nasty toxin back with them that requires The Fantastic Four to place themselves under quarantine in the Baxter Building for two days.  No big deal, right?  Wrong!  What starts out as a series of petty squabbles along the lines of a typical episode of THE REAL WORLD quickly escalates to def-con 5 level life-and-death grudge matches that put Reed and Sue, Ben and Johnny at each other's throats.   With all the adults going insane, it's up to young Valeria and Franklin to save the day--and their family--before no one under the Baxter roof is left alive!  Plus, a classic FF story by John Byrne!

Will the youngest members of the FF save the day? Find out in Fantastic Four Cosmic Special!

I think the story sounds pretty cool, but I'm sick of the repackaged "classic" stories, the are usually a boring excuse to make the book cost a dollar more.

Marvel doesn't care about the recession, they just want your money.

I've admitted before that I enjoy DC much more than Marvel. However, when you hear and see the same crap Marvel pulls, that most of us see from the retailers side of things, you'd be pissed too.
Don't get me wrong, DC does the same crap from time-to-time, but Marvel, from November until March is going to get ridiculous.

Exactly... That was ridiculous..... Don't forget Countdown, Trinity.... They've smartened up in the past year about it though. (Except with Batman R.I.P. I'm not buying every Gotham book)

Just wait until Jan, when Marvel gets ridiculous. I.E. Dark Reign, Dark Avengers, Noir series, etc...

It is when most people are having trouble buying comics because of the economy's status. Sales are really down all over the place. Putting out an extra 25 books won't help.
