F.F. #587 on Sale Tuesday 1/25

Posted by BRiAN On January - 21 - 2011

You heard it right ladies and gentlemen, the Fantastic Four will not be the same come Tuesday January 25 2011…because someone is gonna DIE!

(the second prints of the issues leading up to #587 all lined up as if you were hanging em on yer wall)

Be sure to get to Brave New Worlds on Tuesday January 25, 2011 (a day earlier than all of the other comics [reprints of the issues prior included]) and get your hands on the sealed polybagged (no cheating you peekers! you all know who you are) issue in its first print edition! Marvel is allowing us to do this in anticipation of the growing news/media coverage and hype already boiling over about this issue. This story fifty years in the making has already been making headlines, covered by the AP and CNN most recently, and will most likely only be picking up steam over the remaining days before it’s release Tuesday.

Did I forget to mention that this current run on Marvel’s First Family by Jonathan Hickman has been awesome. I, personally, am not a huge fan of the FF but have found it almost too hard to wait a month between issues. And when you hear Hickman say something like this you know it’s gonna be worth it:

Everything has led to this moment…” (from the CNN article)

There has been much speculation as to exactly who it is on the team that will be biting the bullet in this issue, Newsarama has a whole list of whos, whys & hows here, but at this point in time it could be anyone! Be sure not to miss the issue that everyone will be talking about…everyone! But remember this is not just an issue featuring a death; it’s the beginning of a new era in Fantastic Four history with more unexpected changes to come. Fantastic Four #588 will be the final issue of the series, #587 is the penultimate issue of the series, which began in November of 1961 and was created by Stan “the man” Lee and Jack “king” Kirby.

“The surprises in this issue – and what comes next – constitute one of the biggest events in Marvel history,” said Marvel Senior Vice President of Sales & Circulation, David Gabriel. “When you see the plans that Tom Brevoort, Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting come to fruition, you’ll know why we say this is the story everyone will be talking about.”

I don’t know about you but I wish I could read this right now!

Fantastic Four #587 (sealed in polybag), Jonathan Hickman (w) / Steve Epting (a) / Alan Davis (c), $3.99, 40 pages, full color, Marvel Comics

Lastly my vote is that Thing dies (this is not a spoiler in anyway it’s just my guess as to who will have the most impact on the entire Marvel Universe)…I also like him the best as a member of the team so I don’t really want him to die.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE THE SHOPS MAY NOT HAVE THE ISSUE WHEN THEY OPEN. THEY WILL BE DELIVERED VIA UPS ON TUESDAY MORNING SO PLEASE CALL AHEAD TO CONFIRM THE BOOKS ARE IN THE SHOP BEFORE YOU HEAD IN. THANKS
