The Fantastic Four Images That Marvel Wouldn’t Let Mike Mitchell Show

Last year, cartoonist and champion of Conan O’Brien, Mike Mitchell had an exhibit of his work called Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo. He has shown off the 52 exhibited images right here. A collection of images including head profile shots of the Avengers, Spider-Men, X-Men and many more.

What are significantly missing however are images featuring any of the Fantastic Four.

For over a year now, Bleeding Cool has been reporting on the decision of Marvel comics to cancel the Fantastic Four and withdraw all manner of licensing imagery regarding the team, as a result of a falling out with Fox Studios, who own the movie and live action TV rights to the comic book, as well as sharing in profits of movie-based merchandise. We understand that  this position will continue for the promotional life of the movie and, possibly, DVD.

Recently on Instagram, Mitchell put up these unseen images with a note saying…

While I was working on my Marvel show last year, Marvel pulled all the Fantastic Four licensing from pretty much everyone. I had only roughed out a few, but I was really stoked on them, and bummed they wouldn’t be a part of the show. Anyways, here they are!
