Marvel Will Celebrate 60 Years Of The Fantastic Four With Giant-Sized Special Issue

 This year, Marvel Comics celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Fantastic Four with a giant-sized issue worthy of the iconic super hero’s team monumental legacy. Joining series writer Dan Slott will be legendary artist John Romita Jr., marking his highly-anticipated return to Marvel. In addition to drawing the story, Romita Jr.’s style will also grace the issue in the form of a special wraparound variant cover. Highlighting Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny’s transformation since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first created them, the artwork serves as both a celebration of Fantastic Four’s journey and a teaser of the story inside: a showdown across Fantastic Four history against the master of time travel—Kang the Conqueror

“I was lucky to begin my career with Marvel and now am extremely lucky to re-connect with Marvel. That’s an enormous amount of good fortune. I sincerely thank all the folks up at Marvel, and Disney, who worked for this fortunate re-connection to happen.,” Romita Jr. said. “To add to all this, and I hate to add a third section to my good fortune, is the opportunity to start off with a huge project, which is the 60th anniversary of the Fantastic Four! It is an honor and extreme privilege to be asked to work on this along with a friend and former collaborator, Dan Slott! Along with ink artist JP Mayer, I am looking forward to this being up for viewing in August!”
