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.
