FF #587 is sold out online, limited supplies are still available in-store, 2nd printing coming soon.

Johnny Storm, RIP
If you’ve been holed up in a Latverian prison and haven’t heard the news, the Human Torch was snuffed out in Fantastic Four #587, and he will be sorely missed. The first printing of this historic issue is now sold out online, but we still have limited supplies at our stores in NYC. A second printing will be released on February 23rd, available for advance order here.

Next up, Marvel will release John Cassaday’s shocking — and scarce — “spoiler” incentive cover to issue #587. There’s been a ton of media coverage of this huge event, and the Associated Press did some taping at Midtown Comics Times Square to get reactions from fans and staff about this historic issue. Check out the video here.
