Star writer Matt Fraction teams up with iconic indie artists Mike and Laura Allred to craft a very different look at the Fantastic Four and its ancillary community with FF, the first issue of which will be coming from Marvel NOW! in four weeks. Today, Marvel have provided an unlettered preview of the first issue, which appears to be mostly setting the stage for the bigger story to come. Featuring Reed, Sue, Franklin and Val Richards as well as the members of the FF who will stand in for the Fantastic Four while they're traveling through space and time on a family vacation, FF gives Ant-Man (whose wife just returned from the dead) the task of leading an all-female team. No chance that will cause any strain on his newly-resurrected relationship, right? Check out the solicitation text and preview pages below. FF #1 goes on sale November 28.
