FROM THE MOUTH OF...
IGN Comics: How long are you and Bryan looking to work on Fantastic Four? Could you see yourself staying on board if Bryan shifts to other projects? Also, when is this arc expected to begin?
Millar: It kicks off in January and we're on until December. This book is out every month and we've been stockpiling all year to make sure there are no problems. We'd have a fill in before we'd have a delay. I am ****ing sick of late comics. Seriously, I stipulated this and everyone was in agreement. It's a monthly book.
