Marvel launching ‘New Fantastic Four’ #1 on May 25th

‘New Fantastic Four’ will feature Wolverine, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Hulk, and more!

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed the Fantastic Four are getting a new five-issue series called New Fantastic Four. Written by Peter David with art by Alan Robinson, the series will feature the team from 1991’s Fantastic Four #347 from creators Walter Simonson and Arthur Adams. That issue features a Fantastic Four team that consisted of Ghost Rider, Wolverine, Hulk, and Spider-Man. Hell yeah!

Expect to find the first issue of New Fantastic Four in comic shops on May 25th. David has been on a tear telling stories from Marvel’s past via the multiple Symbiote Spider-Man series. He’s keeping that ball running but via New Fantastic Four.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“Although their original stint was extremely short-lived, the alternate version of the FF has had its fans for years, including myself,” David said in a statement sent to AIPT. “I am fortunate Marvel has given me the opportunity to revisit with them and take their battles to new heights in a new location with new allies and new enemies.”

So what’s New Fantastic Four about?

Wolverine, Hulk(AKA Joe Fixit), Ghost Rider and Spider-Man have reunited to investigate a surge of violence in Las Vegas. And with demonic masterminds pulling the strings, they’re going to need some extra help… This all-new adventure will feature surprise guest stars aplenty, including the original FF and a series of mystery villains that you’ll never see coming!

“Talk about debuting with a big bang in Marvel Comics!” Robinson added. “With characters such as Spider-Man, Hulk, Ghost Rider and Wolverine, and written by the awesome Peter David, no less! This is a dream come true for me as an artist and as a fan, and the story gets richer with each page. A total blast!”

New York, NY— February 2, 2022 — In 1991’s FANTASTIC FOUR #347, comic book legends Walter Simonson and Arthur Adams introduced an unforgettable iteration of Marvel’s premier Super Hero team when they teamed up WOLVERINE, SPIDER-MAN, GHOST RIDER, and HULK as the NEW FANTASTIC FOUR. Though their time as the FF was brief, this unlikely group of heroes left a big impact, and now fans will get to return to this special moment in Marvel history in a new limited series kicking off in May. Written by comics great Peter David and featuring the Marvel Comics debut of artist Alan Robinson, NEW FANTASTIC FOUR will be set shortly after the events of the fan-favorite group’s first appearance, taking readers back to a classic era with a brand-new tale in the same vein as hit titles like X-MEN LEGENDS, MAESTRO, and SILVER SURFER REBIRTH.
