Ryan North and Iban Coello Take Over as Creative Team on ‘Fantastic Four’

Writer Ryan North and artist Iban Coello take over the reins of Marvel’s First Family this November.

North and Coello follow Dan Slott’s lengthy run on the title, and begin their first issue with Ben and Alicia Grimm caught in a time loop. Issue #2 will focus on Reed and Sue Richards and Issue #3 will spotlight Johnny Storm, before bringing the Four back together for #4.

North wants to “…tell smaller stories about the Fantastic Four. That was my way in.” North also compared his approach to the team as “…60s Star Trek, where they go down to a planet, find a weird thing, fix the weird thing, and move on. Having these four weirdos roll into town where there’s a mystery or a problem or some sci-fi thing, solve the problem, and then move on struck me as a very interesting way to position the Fantastic Four and tell stories that would feel fresh and not like a retread of what we’ve seen before.”
