Get a glimpse of J. Scott Campbell’s retro ‘Fantastic Four’ #1 cover • AIPT

J. Scott Campbell, artist extraordinaire, has been hard at work creating retro-style Marvel Comics variant covers, and today we got a glimpse of a new Fantastic Four cover. The cover celebrates the Fantastic Four’s 60th anniversary gracing Ryan North and Iban Coello’s Fantastic Four #1. You can find it in comic shops on November 9th.

“It’s a thrill and an honor to create cover art celebrating the anniversary of characters that have become so iconic and ingrained in our culture,” Campbell said. “I really wanted to make images that would have a visual bridge from the pulpy 4 color origins of these monumental heroes to the modern day slick coloring and production we are now all familiar with.”
