FANTASTIC FOUR #587 Is On FIRE – Nuff Said!



The smash-hit Fantastic Four #587 has sold out at Diamond before hitting stands and will be immediately going back to press with Fantastic Four #587 Second Printing Variant! Featuring a cover from Marvel Chief Creative Officer and megastar artist Joe Quesada, no fan can miss this! Finally the soul crushing end to one of Marvel’s most historic characters, the Human Torch, has arrived and everyone wants to know how! After an overwhelming response from worldwide mainstream media, Fantastic Four #587 Second Printing Variant is being rushed out to comic shops to meet the demand of all the new fans who came in on Tuesday the 25th and long time readers who came in today!

“The response to Fantastic Four #587 has been phenomenal and we want to thank the retailers for supporting the book to make this a success. It’s because of them we’re able to bring this acclaimed run to people outside the industry.” exclaims Marvel SVP of Sales, David Gabriel. “With all the extra attention our books have acquired recently, it’s tough trying to keep all of our critically acclaimed titles on store shelves so they’re readily available for fans new and old.”

The Fantastic Four aren’t the only ones who have everyone talking, because Amazing Spider-Man #651, Amazing Spider-Man #652 and Invincible Iron Man #500 have all sold out at Diamond (though copies may still be available at retail) and will be returning to comic shop shelves with second printings nationwide! Ever since Peter Parker landed a job and hit the Big Time, fans can not get enough of Spider-Man’s newest adventures resulting in five straight sell-outs! Also, the landmark anniversary issue of Invincible Iron Man, brings fans a pulse-pounding paradigm shift as “The New Iron Age” blasts open a new chapter in the history of a Marvel icon. Be sure to get in on all the Marvel action as all of these great books return to comic shops next month.

Definitely sold out in my neck of the woods.

I was curious about it and wanted to at least see it, but it every copy is long gone and the book was polybagged so there was no flipping to be had anyway.

Well, all these copies will be in the bargain bin in 6 months. I'll check it out then.

Turns out my local comic shop put a few copies aside for regular customers who might be interested in actually reading the issue and not salting it away in the hope it will be worth millions in a month.

So I managed to snag a copy which I'm going to read now.

Kudos to RX Comics in Vancouver for taking care of its customers. Now it's time to see what all the fuss is about...

Well, I've read the thing and I can't say I'm all that impressed.

The character (I won't say who for those living under a rock) is giving a great set up to die in but instead there is no blaze of glory as we see how the death affects another character. That's a nice touch but the creators kind of forgot that the character dying needed a final moment and didn't get it.

This was my first issue of FF in decades and it didn't impress me enough to bring me back to the title. I'm glad I read it though.

All the turgid, breathless-on-the-verge-of-hysteria press releases to the contrary, do Marvel executives truly believe that any comic reader over the age of ten thinks that Johnny Storm will stay dead longer than the next FF movie?

As far as I can tell, this is just another pah-f**king-thetic ploy, a transitory gimmick geared toward the ever-shrinking and ever more inbred Marvel completist base.

*yawn* Even if I could afford it. I'd still pass just because I am tired of Marvel's stunts. He'll be back in a year.

Wow...another boring "Character leaping at the audience" cover from Joe Quesada. The guy draws so many of these, he's probably got a generic template for the job.

I am so sick of Quesada and to think people complain about Rob Liefeld all the time.. I'd take his over-use of pouches and fanny packs any day over Quesada.

Quesada has actually become Liefeld. He draws overweight characters, forgot all proportion and perspective, he gives his characters multiple teeth outside of 32, and he tolerates latelness like it was going outta style.

And then they made him a creative director? WTH?

I know he's pushing 90, but it would have been nice to see Stan lee come back and take charge again, but that would be a story for the "What if" comics. As for Joey, yeah.. he has gotten worse and worse over the years. I'm shocked at his promotion as well.

They did the whole "don't show the body" thing so they can bring him back later.
