This week brings some great titles featuring brand new stories, new takes on classic characters, as well as some perennial favorites.
Fantastic Four: Battle of the Behemoths Epic Collection wraps up the Stan Lee and Jack Kirby era of Marvel’s First Family and brings them into the 1970’s, primarily remembered for the dynamic artwork of John Buscema.
Featuring art by Tom Reilly, the story will include cameos from characters from all over the Marvel Universe, from Yancy Street to the far reaches of the cosmos.
The initial line includes: The Thing, Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman (two versions), The Human Torch (two versions), The High Evolutionary, and Psychoman.
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.
