Press Release This January Fantastic Four #587 marks the end of the Fantastic Four andthe penultimate issue of Marvel’s longest running series. Concluding the red hot “Three” storyline by superstars Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting, this issue arrives polybagged in comic shops to avoid spoiling the cataclysmic ending of the Fantastic Four. The incomparable John Cassaday provides a shocking “spoiler” variant cover to the issue which ships a week after the release of Fantastic Four #587 to further preserve the surprise events that lead to the dissolution of Marvel’s first super hero team. In addition, Marvel has officially announced that there will be no overprint on Fantastic Four #587, in addition to the issue not appearing on newsstands. “The surprises in this issues—and what comes next—constitute one of the biggest events in Marvel history,” said David Gabriel, SVP Sales & Circulation. “When you see the plans that Tom Brevoort, Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting come to fruition, you’ll know why we say this is the story everyone will be talking about. We urge retailers to look for a major incentive announcement in Diamond Daily and stock up not just for January, but for the coming months as the aftermath of this issue is revealed.” This is it—the end of the Fantastic Four. But what could bring about such a stunning change to the fabric of the Marvel Universe? There’s only one answer—Fantastic Four #587.   FANTASTIC FOUR #587 (NOV100584) Written by JONATHAN HICKMAN Penciled by STEVE EPTING  Cover by ALAN DAVIS RATED A…$3.99 FOC—1/3/11, On-Sale—1/26/11   FANTASTIC FOUR #587 SPOILER VARIANT (NOV100585) Written by JONATHAN HICKMAN Penciled by STEVE EPTING  Spoiler Variant Cover by JOHN CASSADAY RATED A…$3.99 FOC—1/10/11, On-Sale—2/2/11
