REED OF TWO WORLDS?
When Worlds Collide!

Barry Allen Flash met his Earth-2 counterpart Jay Garrick Flash for the first time in the epoch-making "Flash of Two Worlds." Is "Ultimate Universe" Reed about to come face-to-face with his counterpart, "Regular Marvel Universe" Reed? Based on the cover above, Ultimate FF #21 by Millar/Land, it sure looks that way. And the issues's solicitation says, “The Ultimate FF have seen a lot of amazing things -- but nothing will prepare them for the world they're about to enter! Reed Richards has used his scientific genius to contact an Earth in a surprisingly familiar parallel dimension... and he's ready to visit!” The issue goes on sale July 13th. While you're waiting, check out MORE examples of comic books invading reality (and vice versa) ... WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE!
