Dan Slott appropriately ends his “four” year run on Fantastic Four this August, wrapping up his final storyline, “Reckoning War”, with issue #46 on August 24.
Slott brought back “the Four” in 2018, after a three year hiatus, precipitated by the events of 2015’s Secret Wars. Slott will be moving on to a character that he is synonymous with, the Amazing Spider-Man, with a brand new Spider-Man ongoing series with Mark Bagley.
Slott says that he “…would have loved to have stayed on FF longer. I would have loved to write stories about the FF until the end of time. I got to hit the big notes, and on the way, I got to do stories I didn’t even know I wanted to do!”
The first comics that made Slott a fan were his cousins issues of Fantastic Four and his favorite run on the title was John Bryne’s (who went a little over a year longer than Slott).
Look for Slott’s last issue of Fantastic Four on August 24, and his new Spider-Man series this October.
