With Marvel’s First Family set to make their grand return next month, Marvel has announced that it is set to celebrate one of Fantastic Four’s best known artists, the late Mike Wieringo, with a piece of art never before seen as a cover. Check out the Fantastic Four #1 variant here…
“It’s so exciting to see Mike’s work gracing another Marvel cover after 10 years,” said Mike’s brother, Matt Wieringo. “The Fantastic Four was one of his dream assignments, and I’m sure Mike would have been pleased to participate in the return of Marvel’s first family. And, as Mike’s biggest fan, it’s a genuine pleasure for me to see his art on the stands again.”
“As the artist of my favorite run editing Fantastic Four, it’s especially nice that the late, great Mike Wieringo can make a contribution to the launch of this new one,” added SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.
This August, Marvel invites you to join Johnny, Ben, Sue and Reed in their much-anticipated return to comics, featuring an all-new story from Dan Slott (Amazing Spider-Man, Silver Surfer), Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man: Miles Morales), and Esad Ribic (Infamous Iron Man, Marvel Legacy, Secret Wars)!
Fantastic Four #1 will go on sale on August 8th.
