Marvel’s first family may be missing from the comic line-up beginning next year, according to a report first published on Bleeding Cool.
A listing by the Hachette Book Group, Marvel’s bookstore market distributor, touts a collected edition titled Fantastic Four Vol. 4: The End is Fourever with an on-sale date of June 30, 2015. The description reads “THE END IS FOUREVER! Witness the closing act on the First Family of the Marvel Universe! THE INVADERS meet the FANTASTIC FOUR as the hunt for REED RICHARDS and the missing kids of the FUTURE FOUNDATION continues. Meanwhile the mastermind behind everything unveils his ultimate plan. But how does FRANKLIN RICHARDS factor in? And how does this all lead to…The END?! Collecting FANTASTIC FOUR #642-644 and the Triple Sized Final Issue 645!”
Besides signalling the book’s cancellation, the description marks a change to the numbering of the current Fantastic Four series. Currently the last solicited issue is #14, coming out in December 2014.
