Joe Quesada Draws Galactus for Fantastic Four #1

When Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada isn't busy Creative Officering, focusing more on publishing during the Editor-in-Chief transition, or taking "joint creative custody" of books, he occasionally draws a variant cover or two. The latest comic to be graced by a Quesada cover is Fantastic Four #1, due out on August 8th, exactly 57 years after the debut of the original Fantastic Four #1. What's old is new again, after all, is basically Marvel's motto.

This time, Quesada's variant is a "Hidden Gem," meaning it is "never before seen as a cover." Anyone recognize where it originally came from?

[Update: Commenter Bruno Billion identified the artwork as being from the Hasbro 2010 SDCC San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Marvel Universe 19″ Galactus Ultra Action Figure.]

The variant was revealed earlier today, but this is our first look at it. Check out the variant below, featuring the world-devouring Galactus, and head to your local comic shop in August to pick up Fantastic Four #1, which is returning from a long hiatus dictated by Marvel Chairman and Donald Trump advisor Ike Perlmutter as part of a vendetta against Fox for owning the Fantastic Four movie rights.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
