Following in the tradition of Ed Piskor's X-Men: Grand Design trilogy, Scioli will put his own spin on the history of Marvel's First Family. But Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, the Thing, and the Human Torch won't be the only Marvel Characters featured. Early issues of Fantastic Four included the first appearances of Black Panther, the Inhumans, and more. They will also appear in Tom Scioli's new series as it unifies decades of Fantastic Four stories into a singular narrative.
As an artist known for his love of Jack Kirby, Scioli seems like the perfect choice to give the Fantastic Four the Grand Design treatment. “Fantastic Four is like the Magna Carta of Marvel, this founding document, so being allowed to get my hands on it is thrilling," Scioli says. "They’ve given me a tremendous amount of creative freedom to just go for it.”
Piskor will provide a variant cover for the first issue of Fantastic Four: Grand Design. He says, “Scioli has such unadulterated respect and reverence for the subject matter that I think we can all agree, the Fantastic Four are in great hands with this project!”
Fantastic Four: Grand Design launches in October. Check out the covers and three preview pages below.
