Heehee...

Despite a significant overprinting, Fantastic Four Presents Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius has sold out at Diamond. And the newfound success of creators Chris Eliopoulos and Marc Sumerak’s tiny Franklin tales can mean only one thing: more Franklin tales coming this winter as Marvel continues to show support for an all ages line of comics.

"If the outstanding support for Fantastic Four Presents Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius has proven one thing to me, it's this: People love H.E.R.B.I.E. No matter how they may bash him online, they really just can't get enough of the little guy! That being said, look for our high-strung robot pal to be joining the New Avengers, the New X-Men, and the New Warriors in the near future. No? Ooookay... then just look for him in the new Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius strips coming this winter!"
