News out of Baltimore Comic Con:
Before beginning his acclaimed run on “Fantastic Four,” Hickman had never read the long-running series. To prepare for the assignment, he read every issue. “It’s the really crappy part of the job,” he said, “where we have to read a lot of comics.” Asked how long he planned to stay on the book, he said “Until I get fired by Tom!”
Brevoort pointed out that Hickman pitched a “broad strokes” outline running through issue 600 and beyond. In fact, “I think we can even say, safely, that he’ll be on ‘Fantastic Four’ beyond the point where there’s a ‘Fantastic Four!'” he said, teasing Hickman’s upcoming “Three” storyline. “We’re going to use every trick possible to get people to check out what’s going on there.” If we do a good job, people won’t feel they’re being tricked, they’ll actually like it!”
Ok, that explains “Three” then. 🙂 Despite the lack of permanency in comics, Three seems interesting….
