And Now, It's Time for the Fantastic Family!

Mark Waid has been fired from FF, his last issue is #508. Here's a few snippets from the article at Newsarama.

"A few weeks ago, Bill [Jemas] phoned and tried to convince me to jettison our high-adventure approach and everything else we've been doing in favor of making the FF a wacky suburban dramedy where Reed's a nutty professor who creates amazing but impractical inventions, Sue's the office-temp breadwinner, the cranky neighbor is their new "arch-enemy", etc. Editor Tom Brevoort and I discussed that option at length; ultimately, I apologized and explained that I didn't feel it was something I could write nor something that played to any of my strengths--a radical revamp like that was just too much of a departure from what I was originally hired to write. I simply, honestly, couldn't even wrap my head around the idea. Still can't."

Yeah, really?

Shortly after this article was posted, Mark Waid posted a response stating that it was his understanding that Marvel President Bill Jemas will be the new writer on the series following his departure.
