After announcing a new series of Giant-Size one-shots, today Marvel has revealed details for Giant-Size Fantastic Four #1 from writer writer Fabian Nicieza and artist Creees Lee. Arriving this February, the issue will introduce Natlus, the true king of Atlantis. The issue will feature a cover drawn by Bryan Hitch.

Giant Size Fantastic FourOfficial press release below:

GIANT-SIZE FANTASTIC FOUR #1 will pack startling revelations about the past and set up an wildly uncertain future as the Fantastic Four discover a hidden secret about Atlantis in the form of NATLUS! Awakened after thousands of years, be there when this ancient ruler re-stakes his claim on the throne of Atlantis!

IMPERIUS REX! Namor is imprisoned, serving out his sentence as the disgraced King of Atlantis! So when a new yet ancient threat arises from the sea, who better to leap into the fray than Marvel’s First Family: the FANTASTIC FOUR! Embark on a GIANT-SIZE deep dive into some of Atlantis’ most dangerous history…and the present that can scarcely hope to contain it!

“As a 12-year-old who bought — and still has — the original Giant-Size Fantastic Four run which featured great Marvel creators of the ‘70s like Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, Len Wein, Marv Wolfman, Chris Claremont, John Buscema, Rich Buckler, and more, it was a thrill to write this issue!” Nicieza said. “I tried to follow in the footsteps of those issues by creating something big and new. I came up with a character whose name and history will have Sub-Mariner fans either chuckling and saying, ‘why did no one ever think of that?’ or they’ll want to drown me! I’m excited to see which it will be!”

Look for Giant-Size Fantastic Four  to arrive in stores and digitally on Wednesday, February 28th.


  1. So Fabian Nicieza is writing this that’s super awesome I hope he writes a Giant Size New Warriors next they’ve been obscure way too long.

  2. More strip mining of the past. Sigh. “Revelations” indeed- Marvel has NO ideas, it’s all this stuff- they wonder (or do they) why sales continue to decline.
