Comic News:
Marvel's Human Torch Preview
By Brian Jacks


Marvel's TSUNAMI DOTCOMIC week continued on Tuesday, February 18th with the debut of a special 6-page preview of HUMAN TORCH, the April-launching new ongoing series by fan-favorite writer Karl Kesel and artist Skottie Young, currently making noise with his work on SPIDER-MAN: LEGEND OF THE SPIDER CLAN.

Article continued below advertisement

Created to appeal to FANTASTIC FOUR fans AND new readers alike, the HUMAN TORCH series takes Johnny Storm - one of Marvel's most popular young characters - and reestablishes him as the solo star of a highly accessible and visually unique new monthly title.

While the series is set in present-day, the dotComic sequence shows Johnny in high school, just after he got his powers, establishing Johnny as a person BEFORE there even was a Fantastic Four.

Explained Karl Kesel, "It touches on something very basic to Johnny - that before he got his powers, he was considered kind of cute and funny at school, but definitely weird. He was always telling unbelievable stories - mostly about his sister's boyfriend's strange experiments and inventions - just to get attention.

"Becoming the Human Torch changed all that. But for all his coolness and confidence and wisecracks, Johnny's big fear is that he'd be nobody without his powers. That's a side to Johnny we haven't seen before - and this series will show a LOT of sides to Johnny that readers don't yet know about."

The HUMAN TORCH preview can be read right now at http://dotcomics.marvel.com/lib/launchissue.php?issue=152&wsid=. Issue #1 goes on sale April 9th.

Marvel says fans should look for a new April TSUNAMI dotComic preview every day this week.
