Fantastic Four #588 Final Issue [2011] by Jonathan Hickman

FANTASTIC FOUR #588 FINAL ISSUE
A month of mourning begins as Susan Storm returns to the Baxter Building to find out her brother has died. The Thing has a meeting with both Bruce Banner and Donald Blake who later transform into the Hulk and Thor to console him. Reed Richards measures the threat levels and what is necessary to defeat them as his father Nathaniel Richards returns home. Each member of the Fantastic Four mourns their own way including the two children Franklin and Val. Writer Jonathan Hickman prepares his new series FF as the war of the four cities begins, we find out what happened to all those Reed Richards from the alternative realities, and the revelation of the deal between Val and Doctor Doom. The 12th issue of FF will most likely return as Fantastic Four #600, Future Foundation #600, or FF #600.
