Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada said last weekend at Wizard World Boston that there would be more Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius stories, and on Friday Marvel announced its plans.

Following a sellout of Fantastic Four Presents Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius at Diamond, Marvel announced future back-up stories by Mark Sumerak and Chris Eliopoulos.

Look for more Franklin in the Spider-Man Halloween Ashcan, available through Diamond Comics. Then in December, X-Men #180 and Fantastic Four Special 2005 will feature all-new Franklin stories, finding the son of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman getting himself into even more trouble alongside his robotic sidekick/nanny H.E.R.B.I.E.

David Gabriel, Marvel's director of sales, noted "that these Franklin backup stories, similar to the back up tales in Amazing Fantasy and the upcoming Ultimate Vision story in the Ultimate books, are extra content added to these titles. We are not cutting the regular story pages, and in most cases tossing out ad space. So fans get extra story at no extra cost, and at no shortening of the main title's story."

"Wow! Talk about the little comic that could!" Sumerak said. "Who'd have thought that we'd go from back-up strips in Power Pack to a sell-out one-shot? Congrats to the tiniest member of the FF family for finally getting some time to shine! I'm truly honored by all the support that both Marvel and the fans have given this title. It's exciting to see that readers of all ages have been discovering this fun little strip."

"I'm proud to be part of the creative team that is expanding the comic market and developing the next generation of comic fans," said Eliopoulos, the co-plotter, artist, and letterer. "As a father of twin boys, I know how hard it is to find age-appropriate comics for kids that adults can enjoy as well, and we worked really hard to give everyone something fun to read."
