This April, the fate of Latveria, the world, and the balance of Cosmic Power in the Marvel Universe all rests on one big decision – and one cruel act will forever change the relationship between the Fantastic Four and Victor Von Doom! It’s the terrifying, epic, and final chapter of “Herald of Doom,” coming this April, and Marvel has revealed a brand-new cover from series artist Esad Ribic!
Fantastic Four #9 is written by Dan Slott with art by Aaron Kuder and comes to shelves April 24, 2019.

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!
Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
It’s a short week of releases with the holiday and you can get every single issue for under $50! So, instead of picking which you should get, we’re doing something a little bit different with going over what they are and why you should check out each release!
Adventure Time: Marcy & Simon #1 (BOOM! Studios/KaBOOM!) – BOOM! Studios is continuing the world of Adventure Time after the series finale. Marceline and Simon are reunited and Simon must make amends for his time as Ice King.
Appalachian Apocalypse #1 (Cave Pictures Publishing) – The spiritually focused comic line launches with this series and we’re intrigued to see how it is and if they can do for spiritual comics like has been done with religious focused films.
Avatar: Tsu Teys Path #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Avatar is a weird film and world that was such a breakthrough and didn’t go anywhere. Years later we’re getting sequels and it’ll be interesting to see how the comics build towards that.
The Batman Who Laughs #2 (DC Comics) – The breakout star of Dark Knights: Metal is back and he’s brought a friend. The first issue is solid and we’re so excited to see where this series goes.
Black Badge #6 (BOOM! Studios) – This series has been fantastic so far with its twisted take on the Boy Scouts and spy type stories.
Black Widow #1 (Marvel) – We’re a bit mixed on this first issue but it’s nice to see Black Widow back in her own series and it eventually gets to an interesting place. There’s just enough fun moments to check this one out.
Conan the Barbarian #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic and we’re expecting no less from this issue. A hell of a series debut for 2019.
Fantastic Four #6 (Marvel) – Last issue’s wedding actually happened! Now, we’ve got both Doctor Doom and Galactus to deal with. It’s old school Fantastic Four fun!
Goddess Mode #2 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – The first issue was a blend of tech/fantasy/magical girl and it worked really well. We want to see where it all goes in this second issue.
The Invaders #1 (Marvel) – Marvel is celebrating 80 years with this series and more! The series focuses on the Invaders both in World War II and today as Namor has a plan that’s been brewing and Captain America, Bucky, and the original Human Torch need to stop him.
Marvel Comics Presents #1 (Marvel) – 31 years has gone by since this series first debuted and we’re as excited to get this in our hands as we were back then. Three solid short stories to entertain.
Uncanny X-Men #10 (Marvel) – The end of “X-Men Disassembled” and it’s not what you think!
Netmarble Corp. has announced that the Fantastic Four have arrived in the epic Super Hero action-RPG mobile game, Marvel Future Fight! First introduced in 1961, Mister Fantastic (Reed Richards), The Invisible Woman (Susan Richards), the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), and The Thing (Ben Grimm) have taken generations of readers along on some of the greatest comic adventure stories ever told.
The Fantastic Four are not alone, as they’ve brought along their perennial nemesis, Doctor Doom, and his champion of Latveria, Victorious. Along with these six new characters, Crystal and She-Hulk – existing Marvel Future Fight characters who have been friends and former members of the Fantastic Four team – will all receive new Fantastic Four uniforms. The update will also include a new “Monsters Unleashed!” battle armor uniform for Moon Girl, designed by Netmarble in collaboration with Marvel Games.
A new Epic Quest has been added to the game, focusing on Mister Fantastic. Players will receive the Mister Fantastic character as soon as they begin the Epic Quest and will gain strength each time an Epic Quest is completed. Mister Fantastic can be upgraded to Tier-3 and will have access to Ultimate Skills. The “Unleash Potential” feature will also be unlocked for Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, The Thing, Doctor Doom, Victorious, Crystal, She-Hulk, and Moon Girl.
Other new additions included in this update are a new Character Rank board, where players can see the most popular Characters listed, an improved World Boss Rank board, new Comic Cards and Card Collections, which includes the “Monsters Unleashed!” comic event, as well as new Uniform Collections and more.

HERALD OF DOOM!
• GALACTUS HAS RETURNED TO DEVOUR THE EARTH……and only one man can save us: DOCTOR DOOM!
• And where is that agitator, Reed Richards and his meddlesome family? What are they doing?
• They’re locked in battle against the brave new hero of the Latverian people, VICTORIOUS!
It’s clobberin’ time! The “Thing” has officially made his way to Kabam’s Marvel Contest of Champions! Join THIS MAN…THIS MONSTER event quest and stay tuned as other Fantastic Four characters will be added into the game throughout the year.
Benjamin Grimm, also known as “Thing”, served as the pilot on the starship expedition led by Reed Richards. During the voyage, the ship encountered unprecedented levels of radiation, granting the crew extraordinary powers. Ben gained incredible physical strength, and his body was covered in a flexible, rock-like hide. After returning to earth, the team banded together to form the Fantastic Four.
The Champion’s spotlight is here if you’d like to know about this character’s abilities and stats.
