Marvel Will Launch a New Future Foundation Series in August

Last summer, the Fantastic Four made their triumphant return to the Marvel Universe with a relaunched ongoing series from writer Dan Slott and artist Sara Pichelli. With Marvel’s First Family back together again, the fate of the Future Foundation has been uncertain. But now, Reed Richards’ philanthropic think tank is getting its own spinoff title. Via, there’s a new Future Foundation series coming soon courtesy of Jeremy Whitley and artist Will Robson.

Whitley co-created the Action Lab Comics series Princeless. That series earned two Eisner Award nominations in 2012. He also worked with Marvel on their soon-to-be-ending The Unstoppable Wasp series. Meanwhile, Robson has illustrated titles like Spider-Man/Deadpool, Venom, and Secret Warriors.

Here’s the description from Marvel: “When the Richards family is called back to Earth to be the Fantastic Four again, they left behind the Future Foundation—a think tank of the most brilliant young minds in the universe—with one mission: find the pieces of and rebuild their friend Molecule Man. But that’s proved harder than imagined as this crew of young geniuses, Atlanteans, Mutants, Moloids, and androids have run into every problem in the Multiverse.

Now, with the leadership of Alex and Julie Power and a little extra firepower from guest professor Yondu Udonta, the team will undergo their most dangerous mission yet—a prison break! Jeremy Whitley and Will Robson take the Future Foundation on a heart-pounding journey across time and space!”
