Marvel Comics have released a first look at the first issue of a new era of Fantastic Four, launching next month. Writer James Robinson and artist Leonard Kirk will relaunch one of the most venerated titled in comics, taking Marvel's First Family in a new direction again for the second time since the launch of Marvel NOW! Their All-New Marvel NOW! #1, in fact, has a pretty clear shot at the future since Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley's just-concluded run on the title was more or less divorced from what was going on in the rest of the Marvel Universe. "The team will be brought down," said Robinson. "Despite the fact these characters are a family and have always stuck together, there are forces that push them into directions you never thought you'd see."


"Some rifts will be so big the Fantastic Four may never be the same," added editor Mark Paniccia, "We're talking about a serious, hardcore attempt at destroying them…not just on a physical level but emotionally as well." Check out the solicitation text, variant covers and preview pages below: As the family of cosmic explorers rushes headlong into their darkest hours, who could possibly be behind their downfall? And how does it involve one of the Fantastic Four's greatest enemies – the sadistic dragon Fin Fang Foom! "The Fall of the Fantastic Four" begins this February in FANTASTIC FOUR #1!
