Guest Stars From Fantastic Four’s 700-Issue History On Scott Koblish’s Connecting Wraparound Cover
by Brendan M. Allen
Last week, fans got their first glimpse at artist Scott Koblish’s extraordinary variant cover for the 700th issue of Fantastic Four, and now it’s time to see it in all its glory.
Hitting stands in May, the 700th issue of Fantastic Four will be a giant-sized spectacular from the title’s current creative team, writer Ryan North and artist Iban Coello. Koblish will help them celebrate in spectacular style with a one-of-a-kind wraparound connecting cover that will adorn both May’s Fantastic Four #7 and June’s Fantastic Four #8.
Perfectly encapsulating the rich history of Marvel’s first family, this massive piece features over 700 characters, each one having appeared in a prior issue of Fantastic Four. From the Fantastic Four’s fellow super heroes like the Avengers and X-Men, past members, iconic villains, and everyone in between, this epic assembly serves as a love letter to the team’s unparalleled legacy and their undeniable impact on the Marvel Universe they helped shape.
“I’ve been a big fan of the Fantastic Four since I was a little kid, so not only was it an honor to draw this cover, but it was a dream come true to scroll through every issue of Fantastic Four ever,” Koblish said. “I hope I was able to convey all of the sheer joy, wonder, and boundless creativity that the Fantastic Four have embodied for six decades and I hope it continues to be a shining beacon for decades to come.”
