It was the world's greatest comic magazine - again! Not since the days of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had a creator so perfectly captured the intense mood, cosmic style and classic sense of adventure of Marvel's First Family. Fresh off an earth-shattering and reputation-making run as penciler on UNCANNY X-MEN, John Byrne proved his writing talent was every bit the equal of his art as he pulled double-duty on FANTASTIC FOUR, launching Reed, Sue, Ben and Johnny into realms of imagination and wonder into which few creators before had dared to travel. From the four corners of the globe to the farthest reaches of space to the deepest depths of the Negative Zone, the FF face off against foes old and new - including the Dr. Doom, Galactus and Annihilus! Plus: The FF aid the Inhumans, bid farewell to the Baxter Building, don new costumes and celebrate their 20th anniversary in style as Byrne reminds us all there's a family at the heart of this team of adventurers!

John Byrne has worked continuously in the comic-book industry as both writer and artist since his debut in 1975. After his initial collaboration with Chris Claremont on Marvel's Iron Fist, Byrne moved on to the X-Men for a run that is still regarded as one of the title's finest. Byrne followed that success with an equally famed stint on Fantastic Four, earning comparisons to the original Lee/Kirby issues for his imaginative plotlines and dynamic artwork. In 1986, he was selected to revamp DC's flagship hero, Superman, re-imagining the Man of Steel for a new generation. During the 1990s he produced a number of creator-owned works, including Next Men and Danger Unlimited. In the 21st century, Byrne has produced a number of Star Trek comics for IDW Publishing, where he revived his Next Men series in 2010. Other work for IDW includes his recent miniseries Trio, The High Ways, Cold War, and Doomsday.1.
