Marvel Comics is relaunching Fantastic Four with a brand new #1 in February from writer James Robinson and artist Leonard Kirk.

USA Today has the details with a tease about what's to come:

The FF evicted from the Baxter Building and facing the Avengers. The Thing in prison for murder. Johnny Storm powerless. Dragon Man sentenced to death. The imagination of Sue and Reed Richards' son Franklin becoming all too real while his younger sister is on her own.

"What I hope to do is tie in their past without making it too referential and (touch on) how the past can affect the future. While I'm not reinventing the book, I'm certainly adding a side to it we maybe haven't seen for a while," Robinson said.

"We're going to see the fragmentation of the family due to villainous outside forces that are slowing picking at them and eroding them," Robinson offered. "The arc I'm going to be telling is basically the fall and the rise of the Fantastic Four, and especially the fall and rise of Johnny Storm."

Robinson comes off a stint at DC Comics with Earth 2 and Kirk just did the art for Marvel's The Hunger with the Silver Surfer and Galactus.
