The history of the Fantastic Four will be retold a la X-Men: Grand Design in a new two-issue series by writer/artist Tom Scioli. First reported by ComicBook, Fantastic Four: Grand Design will see the outspoken Jack Kirby fan take on the family's entire mythos and boil it down into one singular narrative.
"Fantastic Four is like the Magna Carta of Marvel, this founding document, so being allowed to get my hands on it is thrilling," said Scioli. They’ve given me a tremendous amount of creative freedom to just go for it."
X-Men: Grand Design's Ed Piskor will be drawing a variant for the first issue, and has given his endorsement of the project.
"Scioli has such unadulterated respect and reverence for the subject matter that I think we can all agree, the Fantastic Four are in great hands with this project!"
Here is the solictaiton for the first issue, due out in October. Look for Marvel's full October 2019 solicitations later this month, here at Newsarama.
