Marvel Comics has announced Fantastic Four: Life Story for release in May.

Writer Mark Russell (Second Coming, Wonder Twins) and artist Sean Izaakse (Fantastic Four, Avengers No Road Home) tackle the history of the Fantastic Four from beginning to end in Fantastic Four: Life Story. In similar fashion to 2019’s Spider-Man: Life Story (see “Old Man Spider-Man”), key events from Marvel’s First Family’s history will be set against the backdrop of the decades the stories were originally published. The series will feature covers by Daniel Acuna.

Fantastic Four: Life Story #1 is set in the 60s, the decade Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first introduced the Fantastic Four. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and the Space Race, the issue chronicles the team’s journey into space. Soon they find themselves in a terrible accident that will entangle them in Earth’s history forever as the world’s premier superhero team.

Marvel Comics recently announced details for Heroes Reborn event (see “Marvel Reveals Storylines, Talent for ‘Heroes Reborn’”).
