Despite slivers of optimism and teases here and there, I don't see any sign of the FF returning as a comic. This officially severs my patronage of Marvel, which, IMO is putting out nothing but crap, and has been for the last 5 years.

It's OK. I've found better indie comics that I really enjoy that are not overly politically correct or hamstrung by a cinematic universe. The FF will always remain my favorite but after the long hiatus, I've moved on.

I have almost a complete collection now of FF comics and trades up to the hiatus. It's a huge, complex and interesting body of work that will remain interesting for a long time to come.

I was at a creator event this weekend at my local comic shop. These guys loved the FF, and all things Jack Kirby, and were also dismayed by the lack of the FF. They also see that Marvel is simply not putting out quality these days, while DC has enjoyed a modest surge.

The truth is Marvel has abandoned the Fantastic Four as a comic and also its longtime fans. Marvel does nothing for me these days, so I don't plan on putting any money into Marvel.

At least not the true Four. In the latest issue of Infamous Iron Man I was surprised at Ben's softening of attitude towards Doom after he talked to a little homeless girl in Latvaria wishing Lord Doom would return to lead his country again. Then he found an old college pic of himself, Reed and Victor together and was surprised to find Doom had kept it all these years.
So. Are they setting something up for a new FF line up? Maybe. Would I approve? No.
I'm getting two books from Marvel these days. Infamous and occasionally Uncanny Avengers depending on Human Torch's level of participation. As of late Johnny has a bigger role and is getting a bit more characterization. When Marvel Two in One comes out I will get that one and am hoping for some thing good.
