‘Fantastic Four‘ #645 is the final chapter of the “The End is FOURever” story arc and will be the last issue of Marvel’s First Family for the foreseeable future. James Robinson and Leonard Kirk have been putting together an interesting story that has torn the team apart and in the last couple of issues has been bringing them back together. Only, we know that when the chips fall at the end of the tale the team will be no more. Is this a case of it being too little too late or do they all agree that a bit of a break is needed from the super hero business in order to restore their family bonds? These previews don’t answer that question but they do introduce some explosive new images on what we might be able to expect.
The teaser for the issue asks a few key questions: “Will the Fantastic Four defeat the Quiet Man and the corrupted forces of the Heroes Reborn universe? Will Johnny Storm get his powers back? Will Reed and Sue be a family again or will it all be torn asunder? Questions will be answered in this main feature story!” Honestly, it does look as if the second question might be answered in the previews below.
First up let’s check out the 3 variant covers that will be released for the issue:
Of course, that isn’t all! As this will be the last issue of the ‘Fantastic Four’ for awhile, there is a promise of more to love as well. The book will have special guest writers and artists giving us four brand new stories. While we don’t know which eras or characters will be featured, we do know that the talent behind them include: Karl Kesel, Louise Simonson, Tom DeFalco and Jeff Parker and art by David Marquez, Joe Bennett, Tom Grummet and Pascal Campion.
What is a preview without actual pages from the book itself? No word if these are all from the main story line or those mentioned above. While most of them appear to be though I’m not sure on the last image as it has a rather drastic change in art style. Enjoy!
Oh, as an added bonus to top if all off some of the most classic covers from past issues will be shared from iconic creators of the series as “Stan Lee, John Byrne, Roger Stern, Mark Millar, Roy Thomas, Chris Claremont, John Romita Sr., Walt Simonson and more” will all be sharing which have been their favorites.
