    I'm interested to see what Robinson and Kirk bring to FF. I enjoy Robinson's writing. The art looks pretty good. The switch from traditional blue to red is interesting.

    Hmm, they changed two times of color already in less than 5 years.

    Looks like they have trouble finding a new look for them.

    IMO the red uniforms look too much like the Incredibles.

    Not liking the Red , If only Jonny was wearing it, would be ok as it harkens back to his old Red and Yellow outfit, the others should be blue, but maybe it'll grow on me.

    This whole Incredibles look....not a good one. They should have stuck to white or blue.

    I don't really mind the different costume look. When I first started reading the FF back in the day, it was composed of Mister Fantastic (basic blue costume), Human Torch (red and gold costume), Medusa ( shades of violet costume) and Thing (blue trunks).

    The red costumes now are a nice change.

    I am gonna be on this book as Robinson is a favorite writer of mine.

    I'll be picking this up as I'm a massive fan of James Robinson's work. Not sure about the whole 'fall of the first family' storyline as I'm seriously wondering if there [should the rumours about Wolverine pan out] will be any Marvel heroes left standing in 2015. Will be picking it up, though.

    THANK YOU!!! I have not been keen on the red/magenta/what have you unstable molecules from very much their introduction day in the articles announcing Robinson's arrival as writer for Fantastic Four. My current mantra in so many words is please, PLEASE bring back the blue (regardless of the gloves, belts, and boots being black/navy blue or white...ALTHOUGH, if Marvel is so hellbent on 'modernizing' the F4's appearance, I still say metallic blue with silver/pewter accessories would be the way to go) AND the '61/traditional logo. Even if blue was not my favorite color for real and with or without my F4 worship, blue is STILL the F4's color, and should remain as such. At least 60-70% of the confabbed Marvel Universe wears red to varying degrees...the F4 so did not need to join that bandwagon. And for the love of Lee and Kirby, don't even get me started on the Incredibles comparisons...

    i absolutely love the silver/white outfits. these may grow on me, but they didn't instantly connect with the ideas of the Future Foundation as the silver does.

    I preferred the white costumes. However, the art is some of Kirk's best to date. Too bad he wasn't drawing this well when he was on X-Factor.

    I won't be checking this out, but I hope it's good for those who do!

    hate that black and red look, too severe. imo their white costumes became instantly iconic, and were their best look ever imo
