UK – Fantastic Four #1 Signing

Writer Dan Slott will be signing the Forbidden Planet variant of the first issue of Fantastic Four at the London Megastore at 6:00 PM on Wednesday 8th August.

BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT – THE WORLD’S GREATEST COMIC MAGAZINE IS BACK!

Since the end of Secret Wars, there’s been a gap in the Marvel Universe. A void no other team can fill. And it’s time for the world to move on. But can it?

Dan Slott and artist Mike Allred launched a new Silver Surfer series in May 2014 – and in 2016, issue #11 won the Eisner Award for “Best Single Issue of the Year”. In late 2017, it was revealed that Slott would be finishing his lengthy run on The Amazing Spider-Man. He wrote his last major storyline, Go Down Swinging, from issue #797-800, which detailed Spider-Man fighting a Carnage-bonded Green Goblin. Slott is currently writing Tony Stark: Iron Man and Fantastic Four.

Dan will be signing The Forbidden Planet variant of Fantastic Four #1, with an Inhyuk Lee cover, limited to 3,000 copies worldwide!
