Marvel’s FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (LGY #646)

FANTASTIC FOUR #1 (legacy #646) by writer Dan Slott and artist Sara Pichelli was a real treat to read! I’m very excited for #2. It is pretty cool and interesting to note that Marvel put this issue out on exactly the 57th anniversary of the original Fantastic Four #1 which was back on August 8, 1961 (cover-dated November) — similar to another publishing milestone earlier this year when DC Comics released ACTION COMICS #1000 on its exact 80th anniversary date this past April.

Now if I know Marvel, they’ll time things just right so that FF legacy #700 will come out on the title’s 60th anniversary in three short years, although I’m not exactly sure how since this series is not currently shipping twice-monthly. Then again, before the 2x monthly frequency of many of its titles in recent years, Marvel used to have several key titles (like the main X-MEN books) shipping at an accelerated clip of 18 issues per year. Well, I’ve done the math and that’s actually all it would take to line up the legacy-numbered FF #700 with the year 2021. 🤓

I read. I write. I rock. Sometimes all at once. Writer, editor, musician, a wearer of many creative hats, jack of many trades, master of an unknown universe. Gifted with an uncanny sense of rhythm and melody. Also armed with grammar and diction, I am still at-large and considered dangerous.
