FANTASTIC FOUR

4 #1 & 2
Written by ROBERTO AGUIRRE-SACASA

Comics' first family face their most personal and unpredictable crisis yet in this debut of their new edgy MARVEL KNIGHTS ongoing series. Writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and rising-superstar artist Steve McNiven pit the Fantastic Four against a challenge the likes of which they've never faced, and to overcome it they'll need to call on the same humor, determination and family bonds that have delivered them from danger time and time again.
