This November is your chance to own FANTASTIC FOUR #1. With Marvel NOW! almost upon us, several titles are ending and starting over with new #1 issues. No need to panic though. It's not a reboot. Not really a relaunch. Just a new creative team and great time for new and old readers to jump on.

Marvel has released an early first look at the first issue on sale in November.

Who at Marvel thought it was a good idea to remove Ben's shirt and shoes? Because that person should not be allowed to have ideas anymore.

Outside of Ultimate Spidey, I'm not a big fan of Bagley's.

The art reminds me of Ultimate Spider-Man. I reeeeaaaalllly liked his art there... I don't why it's not the same effect here. Can't wait though.

@Miss_Garrick: @Master_Thief: Guys check out the next page... It's a dream.

Maybe for me. I'm really gonna miss Hickman on Fantastic Four. So far, the only Marvel NOW! titles I'm planning to get are Avengers and Indestructible Hulk (I never really cared for Hulk as a character, but I loved Waid and Yu on Superman: Birthright). I only hope that Marvel NOW! doesn't mess with the other Marvel titles that I'm curently getting (Daredevil, Captain America, Winter Soldier).

@sora_thekey: I wasn't 100% sure it was a dream when I looked at these pages the first time. The uniforms are still lame.

Going to be honest I'm definitely going to miss Hickman on the book since he's my favorite writer but Fraction has rarely let me down and Bagley is awesome! So I'll give the book a chance

Stan Lee! If I recall his first outfit was just a speedo.

For all the people wondering why Ben is not the Thing, that first panel is part of a nightmare Franklin is having. Ben has no power to change back and forth.

I'm really floored by the art, it looks amazing. I like Bagley a lot but sometimes his work can look really sloppy, that is not the case here. He and the inker have pulled out all the stops. Unfortunately I already plan to check out FF, and I can't justify two Fantastic Four books in my budget, but what I see here really does intrigue me.

It looks insanely bizarre and cool. Reminds me of Grant Morrison in a way, judging by art alone.

@fables87: Really? That's not the same thing. Also techically the classic outfit was designed and created by Jack Kirby not Stan Lee.

Yeah... This looks good... How can Franklin be having nightmares about the crash what created the fantastic four? He wasn't there.... Wonder how Fraction will be doing after Hickman's brilliant run...

I have a weird feeling that Fraction might do a Lost in Space style story for the Fantastic Four. If that's the case who will be written as these two?

The Jim Lee FF looked cooler. Then bagley got to do his Thunderbolts thing back then, so it all worked out.

I think the only reason I would read this would be because of the new FF comic.

From what I read in an interview with the creator the time traveling thing is going to be a series of one shot issues where they take the kids through time for home schooling, dinosaurs fall of Rome etc etc great parenting Richard and Sue.

While in the FF book the team each selects a replacement member (including the ridiculously named Miss Thing, I mean seriously the writer must have a really narrow world view to have never heard a drag queen referred to by the same name) for what is only supposed to be 5 minutes before the team pops back in after there time travels but this doesn't happen and finally after three weeks Johnny, minus an arm and his sanity shows up closes the portal and says no one can open it again.

So I think I might read the first issue of this for the background of there trip then maybe pick it up again once it develops a stable plot and/or starts heading toward the events of FF #1

@Zeeguy91 Cap gets the new numbered treatment, but I believe Daredevil and Winter Soldier are staying status quo
