According to Marvel, Fantastic Four 554 has sold out at the distributor level, so the company has decided to go back to press for a second printing of the Mark Millar/Bryan Hitch tale.

“First off, a great big thanks,” said Millar. “Our friends all pointed at us and laughed when we said we wanted to put FF back in the top ten, but we love this book. We have always believed in it and are both just delighted to see our naive, slightly deranged enthusiasm reach other people and translate into great sales. A huge thanks from both Scotland and England to everyone who got out there and supported us. We were really, really happy with the numbers, but to hear that the book sold out in a day is just nuts. We promise this is only the beginning and the fun has only begun!”

    At least this way there’s sure to be at least two issues in a timely manner.

    Is it just me or does Reed look like a 90s Bill Clinton in that ‘portrait’ up top?
