Marvel's King in Black crossover event will grow - like any good symbiote would - to take over one of the Fantastic Four family.
Dan Slott's ongoing Fantastic Four series will crossover with the King in Black event in February. This tie-in issue, Fantastic Four #29, will be drawn by guest artist Ze Carlos.(opens in new tab)
"In the middle of the chaos that is King in Black...a symbiote bonds with a member of Marvel’s First Family!" reads Marvel's solicitation for the issue.
The solicitation doesn't disclose which member of the extended Richards family it is, but it makes a bit of sense that it could be Franklin Richards given changes he's had as he's grown into a teenager (such as dying his hair) while also dealing with new questions about him being a mutant or not as revealed recently in Fantastic Four #25.
February's Fantastic Four #29 will also pick up on the recent team-up of the revived Uatu the Watcher and Nick Fury, who was transformed into the Unseen back in the 2014 event Original Sin (opens in new tab).
"Also in this issue, the Unseen is putting together a squadron for a secret mission in deep space," Fantastic Four #29's solicitation concludes.
Fantastic Four #29 will be Ze Carlos' first issue of Fantastic Four, after being a guest artist on Spider-Verse #6, and portions of Amazing Mary Jane #6, Amazing Spider-Man #40, Miles Morales: Spider-Man #11 and #14, and Venom #20.
Stay tuned to Newsarama for Marvel Comics' full February 2021 solicitations later this month.
