By now, you should all be aware that the greatest superteam in comics, Marvel's First Family, the Fantastic Four are finally returning to the rightful place - front and centre in their own title once more!
Today, Marvel published an interview with scribe Dan Slott (writer of Amazing Spider-Man for the last 10 years!) and Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, discussing their love for the title and what readers can look forward to.
Quotes that took me to my happy place included:
"... first and foremost, they’re explorers. They’re out to see new planets, dimensions and universes! They live to push the boundaries of both science and the imagination! More importantly, they live to do that together, as a family."
"We will absolutely mix it up and give you classic FF goodness and all-new, modern-day weirdness, too.Obviously, with the first issue not due for several months yet, they're not going to give too much away.
I’ll be honest with you, though: we’ve been away from the Fantastic Four for years now, and I am dying to start off and lean into the most FF-ish stories possible! Stan and Jack, Byrne, Simonson, Waid and Ringo, Hickman and everyone in between—I have so much love for every era of this book, I really can’t wait to play with all the toys in the toy box!"
But Dan Slott is saying all the right things to make me think this will be an iteration of the Fantastic Four, the team that got me hooked on comics in the first place, that I will be very happy to read about for many, many more years to come.
