‘Fantastic Four’ #9 Recreated Page by Page with Indie Cartoonists [Art]

A couple of weeks ago we showed you a portion of Fantastic Four #9 redrawn by King City creator Brandon Graham. What we didn’t realize at the time was that the commissioned piece was just one part of a larger and more ambitious work: The Fantastic Four #9 project, where every page of the classic 1961 issue will be redrawn by a different contemporary artist. The Fantastic Four #9 Project was initiated some years ago by artist Jason Young in what he’s likened to a punk band covering a classic of the 1960s. While he’s still many pages away from completion, Young has so far commissioned beautiful work from artists including the aforementioned Brandon Graham, Nate Powell, Chester Brown, Jeffrey Brown, James Kochalka and more.Young elaborated on his plans on the Fantastic Four #9 Project’s official blog:

Jason has decided to commission a wide variety of artists and cartoonists to re-create this classic issue of the Fantastic Four, page by page. Think of it as a punk band doing a cover of a sixties classic. All the artists involved are respectfully reinterpreting Jack Kirby through their own eyes and style.

The project is a long-term, slow process. Jason is paying for the commissions out of pocket for his own personal collection and enjoyment. As new art is received and scanned in, we’ll be posting it here, as well as links to the artists’ home pages (if applicable). So keep checking back!

The Fantastic Four #9 Project is an especially dedicated expression of a certain comics phenomenon whereby artists recreate memorable works of the past in a modern style. The Covered Blog has a lot of stellar material in a similar vein, and the DC Fifty-Too project could be argued as scratching a similar itch.

Check out some FF #9 redraws below and be sure to check out the project’s official blog for more.
