Over the decades, Marvel Comics has attracted a wealth of legendary comic book creators – top talent who have delivered fan-favourite characters and epic stories. And because the content they have produced has become so well-loved by readers, it has been published and republished multiple times, often as part of a collection of themed trade paperbacks.

One of the most notable amongst these themed trade paperback collections is Marvel’s Visionaries series. The books contain a run of stories from one particular creator and usually one particular era.

In this post, I am throwing the spotlight on Marvel’s Visionaries books, with a focus on the Fantastic Four. This post contains a chronological reading order for all the Fantastic Four: Visionaries books, featuring the work of John Byrne, Walter Simonson, and George Pérez.

So, if you are new to the Fantastic Four and are keen to check out some of the FF’s best-loved, creator-driven stories, these are the books you may wish to seek out.
