The Fantastic Four Conspiracy: Another Disappearing Galactus

Bleeding Cool has been covering the rumour that Marvel Comics has been ordered by its executives to downplay the Fantastic Four comic ahead of the upcoming movie.

Whether it's sketch card artists or Mondo Poster makers, the FF and their related characters such as Galactus and the Skrulls are off limits to all sorts of folk.

Well, here's another.

Panini Comics Italy announced a variant cover for their Guardians Of The Galaxy drawn by famous Italian cartoonist Zerocalcare.


But this is how it appeared on publication.

Galactus was substituted with the celestial Arishem… no explanation given. I mean, there are Celestials in the Guardians movie and not Galactus. But that's not going to be the actual reason for the decision…
