Fantastic Four Returns On Esad Ribic's Cover for the New #1

Marvel Comics has unveiled Esad Ribic’s cover for Fantastic Four #1, by writer Dan Slott and artist Sara Pichelli, which reunites Reed Richards, Sue Richards, Johnny Storm and Benjamin Grimm.

The publisher also released a video that celebrates the return of Marvel's First Family, which looks back at their 57-year later, from a 1961 debut in the landmark comic by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby to the August revival.

Last month Marvel announced the long-anticipated return of the Fantastic Four, who haven't been seen together since Reed and Sue left with children Valeria and Franklin to repair the many fractured multiverses in the aftermath of Secret Wars. Johnny and Ben have largely spent time apart from one another, with The Thing a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Human Torch becoming a member of the Uncanny Avengers.

The new Fantastic Four series won't only focus on the original quartet, however. Valeria and Franklin will be active players in the story as well. In addition, the team will face Doctor Doom again, although Reed in particular hasn't seen Victor since their last duel at the end of Secret Wars.

Fantastic Four #1, by Dan Slott and artist Sara Pichelli, goes on sale in August from Marvel Comics. Esad Ribic will provide covers for the series.
