Dwayne McDuffie, producer of the Justice League Unlimited animated series, is writing his first story for Marvel Comics in more than a decade in December's Fantastic Four Special.
"I was thrilled when Tom Brevoort asked me to pitch in on the Special and I jumped at the chance. I've always had a soft spot for the Fantastic Four," McDuffie told The Continuum. "It's my first script for Marvel Comics in 13 years but it's like meeting old friends you've been out of touch with for ages and miraculously picking up right where you left off without missing a beat."
Here's how Marvel describes the the story, titled "My Dinner with Doom:"
"It's a day of celebration and reflection in Latveria, but deep within the confines of the Latverian Embassy to America, Victor Von Doom and Reed Richards engage in a subtle battle of wits, with all of Manhattan as the playing field. What are the stakes? And can Mister Fantastic triumph when all of the moves have been made in advance?"
The art for the story is by Casey Jones. The book will also feature a Franklin Richards back-up and a cover by Leinil Francis Yu.
