The upcoming Fantastic Four reboot is getting some real talent behind it.

From the press release:
“As someone who has spent his entire life obsessed with both comic-books and movies, this is essentially my dream gig as it’s a unique combination of both,” stated Millar. “I spent ten years working at Marvel and am really happy with the work I did on the comic side of things so the idea of working with these characters now in a brand new medium is enormously exciting for me. I really like the Fox team, love this bold new direction they have for their franchises and am proud to be working alongside some of modern cinema’s biggest talents. James Mangold is incredible, Matthew Vaughn’s one of my closest pals and Josh Trank gave us, in my opinion, one of the greatest superhero movies of the last decade with Chronicle. The invitation to join this crew was maybe the coolest phone-call I’ve ever had.”

We haven’t been huge followers of Fantastic Four over the years…

But the fact that we knew that the series was ending got us interested (again) we picked up Fantastic Four with issue #584 and we’re glad we did.

The end of The Human Torch in #587 was sad – but is he really dead? we never actually see that..do we?
Then again in #588 we do see Anihilus with Johnny’s torn 4 jersey..
How about #588? has there ever been a better issue of Fantastic Four? This is an issue with few words…and lots of emotion.

The artwork is brilliant, conveying the depth, drama and emotion that words simply could not.

The final pages with Spiderman – and the recollection of his Uncle Ben – also brilliant.

Now we know that that is the end of Fantastic Four – but the beginning of FF ..
Will we buy FF#1 ?

YOU BET WE WILL.

This is a new version of a classic team, and hey Spiderman in white? We wonder how long that will last…

That’s right – Stan Lee is likely not happy either.

Johnny Storm  – aka The Human Torch dies in Fantastic Four #587.

Now considering that Fantastic Four has been coasting along for years – who buys that stuff now??? – this is like the spark that could reignite some interest in Stan Lee’s first family of Marvel.

Even more shocking is that the Fantastic Four is ending – as a comic book – after 41 years with issue #587

There are some people that think that the Fantastic Four should have ended in 1971 when Jack Kirby left (we’re among them) – but this series is the cornerstone of Marvel to see it go is…sad in a way…but it’s also long overdue.
