Marvel Announces a New Era for the Fantastic Four
They are easily one of the most important collectives in the history of the medium, as Marvel’s first family has been a constant throughout the history of the publication, but will be reimagined as Marvel announced a new era for the Fantastic Four.
It is not hyperbole to say that Marvel’s Fantastic Four are one of the key creations in comic history, and perhaps one of the longest-lasting and most sustaining properties that the comic book publisher has ever orchestrated.
Characters that have stood the test of time, these are heroes that are among the rarest of Marvel’s pantheon and have well earned a hallowed place in the lore of the company and its vast creations.
Now, the famed team is back in a brand new way, as Marvel has announced a new era for the Fantastic Four, and a new comic book run that will pit the four iconic heroes against the unbeatable foe; time.

Announced in a press release by Marvel.com, the new series will start with Fantastic Four #1 by The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl writer Ryan North, and famed Venom artist Iban Coello, with covers by the legendary and unmatched Alex Ross.
Discussing the incoming series, the press release stated, “North and Coello have landed the team- or, at least, a member or two- in a world of trouble. Something has gone terribly wrong in New York, sending the Thing and his wife Alicia traveling across America to escape it.”

“But when they stop in a small town for the night and wake up the morning before they arrived,” the report continues, “they find themselves caught in a time loop that’s been going on since before they were born…”
Also in the press release, Ryan North spoke on following up Dan Slott’s tremendous run with the team in The Reckoning War, stating, “I’m never going to go as big as Dan Did, so let’s tell smaller stories about the Fantastic Four. That was my way in.”
Fans can pick up the issue arriving this November, with variant covers by Ross, and a fantastic journey awaiting.
