Marvel has assembled an all-star group of artists to celebrate the Fantastic Four’s 60th Anniversary this November, with new versions of Fantastic Four #1 and Fantastic Four Annual #3, with Stan Lee’s scripts and Jack Kirby’s layouts.
The Fantastic Four Anniversary Tribute #1 follows the blueprint of two similar projects, Giant Size X-Men: Tribute to Wein and Cockrum #1 and Captain America Anniversary Tribute #1, which also retold classic stories with new artists illustrating each individual page.
Executive Editor Tom Brevoort is ready to commemorate “…the 60th Anniversary of the Fantastic Four—and that means it’s a good time to assemble the best and brightest that Marvel has to offer to joust with the King. This issue not only reimagines that initial Fantastic Four issue from 1961 through the vision of the artists of today, but also the later story from Fantastic Four Annual #3 in which Reed and Sue were married and the entire Marvel Universe of the period showed up. There’s really no better way to commemorate this anniversary than by revisiting these classic works anew.”
Check out the official listing and line-up below:
