Official Press Release
After a momentous debut that has everyone buzzing, Marvel is pleased to announce that the critically acclaimed first issue of FF, by the megastar creative team of Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting, sold out immediately at Diamond and will be going back to press with FF #1 Second Printing Variant! And that’s not all! To celebrate one of the biggest launches of the decade, FF #1 Second Printing Variant features an all new cover from superstar artist Ed McGuinness.
Fans and critics agree – they can’t get enough FF!
“Yes, this book demands re-reading. It helps the story soak in a bit more and offers more for the reader on a second pass. In short, this is a near perfect first issue for readers to jump into this fantastic new world.” – Doug Zawisza, ComicBookResources.com
“By the time I got to the last page, I wanted to keep reading, even though I know I’d read a very full issue. That’s when you know they’ve been doing something right.” – Josh Flanagan, iFanboy.com
“I am extremely excited by Steve Epting being on this book. Epting has a look about his work that combines the best qualities of people like Bryan Hitch and Neil Edwards, and in particular he really sells the all-white Spidey suit.” – David Pepose, Newsarama.com
You’ve never seen the FF like this before! The dawn of tomorrow begins today as Marvel’s First Family re-invents themselves to tackle the biggest threats that the Marvel Universe has to offer. This April, be the first to your comic shops to pick up FF #1 Second Printing Variant!
*Retailers should check the Marvel Mailer for ordering instructions as quantities will be limited and on a first come first serve basis.
