Marvel Announces Final Fantastic Four Print Run Plans (Mania.com)

Date: Monday, January 03, 2011

Marvel has announced their plans to keep the final issues of Fantastic Four on the shelves as they gear up to get the title going with just the Fantastic Three as part of their 2011 shake-up. The plans have gotten some good press around the net largely owing to Jonathan Hickman's writing at this point and the idea of killing off one of the mainstay characters of the Marvel Universe certainly will draw in a crowd. In hopes of there being some mainstream press and interest in this like we've seen previously with other big event news surrounding core characters that a lot of people know about, Marvel wants to make sure the issues stay on the shelves and are offering some encouragement for retailers to get in sizable orders by including a number of variants.

The following issues are entering second and third printing runs so that people just arriving into this event can have the chance to grab the lead-up issues when the big finale arrives in February:
