Marvel Comics’ First Family is about to get a squirrel-sized makeover, and it’s shaping up to be a fantastic run. First announced in August, Fantastic Four is set to relaunch on November 9, written by Ryan North, with art by Iban Coello and colors by Jesus Aburtov and an as-of-yet-unannounced letterer. In addition to doing the main series covers, the Marvel artist best known for how he plays with proportions and scale (which is perfect for The Thing’s rock-hard muscles and a squirrel’s eye view of Reed Richards), Alex Ross, is also marking the occasion with four black-and-white variant covers featuring Sue, Reed, Ben, and Johnny.
Here’s the Marvel Comics press release announcing the variant covers:
The Fantastic Four are about to enter an all-new era! The upcoming run by writer Ryan North and artist Iban Coello will be ripe with mystery and overflowing with suspense as it finds the team separated after a devastating incident back in New York. The first three issues will deliver exciting standalone adventures starring Ben Grimm and Alicia, Reed and Sue, and Johnny before the team’s heartbreaking and revelatory reunion in February’s FANTASTIC FOUR #4!
In addition to gracing the series with breathtaking main covers, legendary artist Alex Ross will mark this major milestone with a series of variant covers for the opening four issues! Presented in striking black and white and capturing the team’s timeless appeal, the iconic Fantastic Four artist has crafted classic portraits of all four members of the team in these must-have SOLO VARIANT COVERS!
