Pretty cool - I'm amazed how they can make it look like it's fully inked just by contrast tweaks to the pencils...

Those are some of the tightest pencils I've ever seen.

Beautiful. I hope Hickman and Eaglesham stay on FF for awhile. Really excited to see Wizard back and badder than ever by the looks of it :)

That looks amazing.

I'm actually excited for this book. I say that because, while I've read a fair share of FF, I don't really have a love for the characters like I do with most Marvel characters.

Haven't read anything by Hickman before but i've heard good things. I think i'll try out the first couple of issues

Those are some beautiful pages. I'm really looking forward to this run. Considering the FF are Marvel's first family, I really think they need a stable, long term creative team and definitely a writer that seems to have a good grasp of the all characters. From the looks of those pages by Eaglesham and the FF stuff Hickman did recently, I definitely think the book is in good hands.

Yyyyep. I'll definitely have to get trades of this.

and that's how you save money: you ask from your penciler a really tight pencilled page and probably give him $50 per page more, with still saving the publisher $75 per page by not having to employ an inker

Inkers are superfluous! Yay!

Now if Marvel can just get writers to start lettering their own books.

That's a lot of hard work there.
Great job, Dale!

Looks good. The Fantastic Four is one of those titles that has had great creative teams, but no real classic runs outside of Lee and Byrne. I thought a lot of runs like Waid and Simonson were good, maybe even very good, maybe even very very good, maybe even very very very good, but they don't seem to stand out for some reason.

Do you really want Bendis' spelling to reach into your books?

Big Poot!

Holy crap that looks good! Even better than Hitch's stuff, I wouldn't have thought that until now!

And this is why Dale is one of the best in the industry currently.

Looks great and pretty different from his JSA stuff.

Looking at it, does anyone else think that it's kind of strange that FF is usually the book that introduces a lot of prominent MU Cosmic beings. Galactus, Silver Surfer, Air-Walker, Abraxas. Who else?

No.

Lettering is the least-paying and most thankless of all the comic creation positions.

Holy fucking shit, that is one amazing piece of art...

Multiple Silver Surfers?
Multiple Ultimate Nullifiers?!?

Wow.

Wow.

Multiple (I assume alternate reality) Reeds. And those objects they're holding look like roll-on white-out.

The article associated with this art really detailed how much attention Dale has put into the paper and lead weight choices and the difficulties of keeping a mechanical line for all of those machines. He's on issue 3 and still hasn't hit on the perfect combo.

He's basically making all of the decisions an inker would and not merely going straight from roughs to color (like Humberto Ramos' recent Avengers: Initiative issues).
