Recent rumors have suggested Marvel’s First Family would be seeing an end in comic book form, and the publisher confirmed those suspicions during a panel at New York Comic Con this weekend.
During a Comic Con panel on Sunday, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso and Fantastic Four writer James Robinson announced the series will end in 2015.
Robinson said during the panel that the Fantastic Four are “going away for a little while” and that he is “building up to the end of the Fantastic Four.”
The series will conclude in a story arc entitled “The End is Fourever,” ending with the triple-sized issue #645. The final issue is scheduled to release in June of 2015, which will close the book temporarily on the group, only a few months before the Fantastic Four film reboot is set to debut on Aug. 7.
