Two iconic comic creators – Neal Adams and Mark Waid – are teaming up for the first time ever this August on FANTASTIC FOUR: ANTITHESIS, which features the debut of a brand new nemesis for the Fantastic Four “guaranteed to send shockwaves throughout all of fandom”.
Speaking about the announcement, Waid said “Working with Neal Adams has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. To share the page with a man of his talent is an honor. The story begins with the Fantastic Four struggling to prevent an extinction event on Earth and just goes more cosmic from there. We all know of Galactus, but until now, no one has met his Antithesis.”
Adams continued, adding “I have always had the sense of missing the chance to draw the Fantastic Four. It was a quiet sense, since I’ve had every opportunity to do my favorites. More, I felt Kirby and Buscema had done it all, hadn’t they…?” he begins. “When Marvel’s Tom Brevoort asked if I’d like to do the Fantastic Four, I knew I had to ask for Galactus and the Silver Surfer as well. I am humbled and thankful to Tom for the opportunity.”
Featuring inks by Mark Farmer and colours by Laura Martin, FANTASTIC FOUR: ANTITHESIS #1 is set to go on sale this August.
