Marvel confirms 'Fantastic Four' comic book series set to end in 2015
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.
