"Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four" #1 receives Mike McKone variant cover

Mike McKone's variant cover for "Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four" #1

Secret Invasion has begun and the Skrulls have landed the first blow in their war on Earth! In the first issue of Secret Invasion, a Skrull Invisible Woman had the Baxter Building sucked into the Negative Zone and Mr. Fantastic was incapacitated in the most brutal of manners. In the 3-issue tie-in mini-series Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four, it’ll be up to the Thing and Human Torch to get the building and its inhabitants back home, including the young Franklin and Val. But are any of the heroes who they say they are?

Written by Roberto Aguirre- Sacasa (Marvel Knights 4, Sensational Spider-Man) with art by Barry Kitson (The Order), Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four #1 will have a very Skrully-looking variant cover by Mike McKone, seen here for the first time. Plus, this series promises the return of a very familiar Skrull from the FF’s past who’s looking to exact revenge on the First Family of Comics.

The Fantastic Four are the Skrulls’ most hated enemies on Earth so don’t miss Secret Invasion: Fantastic Four for a very important battle in the war for Earth, as Secret Invasion kicks into high gear!
