Marvel Comics have announced “Fantastic Four: Antithesis,” a new series by writer Mark Waid and artist Neal Adams that will see the First Family dealing with an injured Silver Surfer, and the titular antithesis of his master Galactus.

“Working with Neal Adams has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. To share the page with a man of his talent is an honor,” Waid said. “The story begins with the FF struggling to prevent an extinction event on Earth and just goes more cosmic from there. We all know of Galactus, but until now, no one has met his Antithesis.”

Adams said, “I have always had the sense of missing the chance to draw the Fantastic Four. It was a quiet sense, since I’ve had every opportunity to do my favorites. More, I felt Kirby and Buscema had done it all, hadn’t they…? When Marvel’s Tom Brevoort asked if I’d like to do the Fantastic Four, I knew I had to ask for Galactus and the Silver Surfer as well. I am humbled and thankful to Tom for the opportunity.”

Mark Waid previously wrote the main “Fantastic Four” series from 2002 to 2005, in an acclaimed run primarily penciled by the late Mike Wieringo. Adams’s last project for Marvel on interiors came in 2012 with the miniseries “First X-Men.” They will be joined on the series by inker Mark Farmer, and colorist Laura Martin.

“Fantastic Four: Antithesis” #1 releases in August.
