Fantastic Four meets ‘Cronenberg body horror’ in December

While Marvel fans continue to search for any clues about the Fantastic Four’s eventual addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (including the most recent possible clue about their movie future), Marvel Comics continues to try to rebuild their presence in the comic book universe. 

In addition to a promised major new “permanent” status quo change in October, FF fans will get an extra dose of Marvel’s first family in Fantastic Four: Road Trip, a one-shot by writer Christopher Cantwell with art by Filipe Andrade and a cover by Valerio Giangiordano.

According to the publisher, after the events of Empyre, the family takes a vacation, but Reed doesn’t take to rest and relaxation too well and a science experiment goes awry resulting in “some rather freaky side effects!”

“The Fantastic Four have earned some much-needed time away from the job, and Reed has planned a — well, fantastic — old-fashioned family vacation to the Grand Canyon for some good rest, relaxation and team-bonding time,” reads Marvel’s official description. “But Reed’s manic mind can’t quite disengage, and soon an obsessive side experiment he brought with him has all of them experiencing gruesome and terrifying side effects from his strange specimens. As everyone’s bodies begin to horribly go awry on a cellular level, it’s a race to solve their lethal affliction, all while stuck in a remote Arizona cabin with no help for miles.”
