August sees the return of the Fantastic Four comic book after a three year imposed absence from Marvel chair Ike Perlmutter after Marvel fell out badly with Fantastic Four licensors Fox. But with Deadpool and Legion having healed some wounds, and Disney buying Fox healing more of them, the Fantastic Four comic book is returning and Marvel are finally reprinting all the Fantastic Four storylines and collections as well.
And so in August, Dan Slott and Sara Pichelli are launching a new Fantastic Four series. Bringing the foursome back from the brink and, it seems, giving us a new big bad as well. If her name Eradikus is anything to by that is. Oh and she also has a minion, too. Here are Sara Pichelli’s designs for the character.
There are notes of the Ultimate Reed Richards, The Maker, in the headgear. Maybe some Galactus in the way it reaches up. And maybe an all-seeing eye. Oh and there’s a Minion as well, which looks less like this…
…and more like this…
We also have a look at the other costume designs for the rest of the Fantastic Four.
Fantastic Four #1 will be published in August.
