TOM BREVOORT ON FF: THE LOST ADVENTURE


by Zack Smith

It’s not unusual for the lost work of a great artist to be released years after their passing. Ernest Hemingway and Ralph Ellison are just two legendary authors whose novels hit the shelves in recent years, and the surviving Beatles got back together in 1995 to finish John Lennon’s uncompleted track “Free as a Bird.”

Fantastic Four: The Lost Adventure reunites the original FF team of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, along with inker Joe Sinnott. The original Lee/Kirby FF run needs no introduction – historically, it’s responsible for pretty much all of comics as you know it. It’s also one of the longest unbroken runs by a single creative team in history, only recently surpassed by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley on Ultimate Spider-Man.
