"Fantastic Four: The Lost Adventure"

I talked this morning with Marvel Comics executive editor Tom Brevoort about “Fantastic Four: The Lost Adventure,” which comes out in February. It’s a reunion of sorts of the legendary team of Stan Lee and the late Jack Kirby. The story was originally created for the monthly “Fantastic Four” series nearly 40 years ago but wasn’t published apparently because of some rift between Lee and Kirby. After Kirby left for DC, some of the story made it into “Fantastic Four” No. 108 as an extended flashback sequence. For “The Lost Adventure,” Brevoort brought back Lee and original inker Joe Sinnott to rebuild the original story from Kirby’s pencils. “It’s not exactly the issue you might have got in 1970, but it as close as we could get,” Brevoort said. I’ll have more on “The Lost Adventure” in the next Comics Fan.

Now this sounds like it could be very cool or very disappointing.

I am rooting for cool since it involves some legends in the comic world.

Looking forward to more information on this one.

I think it will be cool. Brevoort says it's hardly the best FF story Jack and Stan did. But it IS a Stan and Jack story. So.....
