Mark Russell and Sean Izaakse Explore 60 Years of the Fantastic Four
The Fantastic Four celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. The iconic Stan Lee and Jack Kirby creation, credited with kicking off Marvel Comics’ historic Silver Age, have starred in some of the most memorable comic book adventures of all time, and now their illustrious saga will be presented in a radical new way in Fantastic Four: Life Story.
Written by acclaimed writer Mark Russell and drawn by Sean Izaakse, and colors by Nolan Woodward, Fantastic Four: Life Story will be written in the same approach as Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley’s hit series, Spider-Man: Life Story. Fantastic Four: Life Story will tell the entire history of the Fantastic Four from beginning to end, set against the key events of the decades through which their stories were published.
Fantastic Four: Life Story #1 will take place in the “Swinging Sixties” when Reed, Ben, Sue, and Johnny took that fateful journey to space that changed the face of comic book storytelling forever. Against the backdrop of the Cold War and the Space Race, a terrible accident occurs that gives them great powers and a terrible secret, entangling them in Earth’s history forever as they transform into the world’s premier superhero team.
