Get 40% off Jonathan Hickman’s Fantastic Four Omnibus Volume 1 when you pre-order before Wednesday 1st May!
The 736-page book is due out in October 2013, priced £55.99 – but if you go to ForbiddenPlanet.co.uk now, you can get 40% off that RRP, bringing it down to just £33.59.
The newly-announced omnibus collects together the first part of Hickman’s critically-acclaimed run that includes the ground-breaking Three storyline – in which a lead member of the Fantastic Four dies! – and launches the new FF series (that’s the Future Foundation). Here’s the full synopsis:
Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman revamps and redefines Marvel’s First Family in a sweeping and epic saga across time, space and reality! And it all begins when Mr. Fantastic decides to solve everything! As the team contends with Norman Osborn’s Dark Reign, an older Franklin arrives from the future with an ominous warning! And as the Fantastic Four fight the War of the Four Cities, Mr. Fantastic assembles a band of genius youngsters.
But when Nathaniel Richards returns, Galactus rises and a new Annihilation Wave threatens to invade from the Negative Zone, tragedy suddenly strikes. Grieving, the surviving members of the Fantastic Four dissolve the team — but from its ashes rises the Future Foundation! Guest-starring Spider-Man, Dr. Doom, Sub-Mariner and the Inhumans!
Collects Dark Reign: Fantastic Four #1-5, Fantastic Four #570-588, FF #1-5 and material from Dark Reign: The Cabal #1; written by Jonathan Hickman; pencilled by Sean Chen, Dale Eaglesham, Neil Edwards, Steve Epting, Nick Dragotta and Barry Kitson, with cover artwork by Alan Davis.
I expect fp.co.uk’s price to increase to about £38 after this promotion, and anyone who wants to explore the team that kick-started the Marvel Universe is well-advised to pick the book.
I particularly like this run as one of its titles quotes my favourite band, The Killers: ‘When Everything’s Lost, the Battle is Won… Because of All These Things I’ve Done.’
Pre-order before Wednesday 1st May 2013 here.
