The Fantasticast Episode Thirty-One

The Fantasticast Episode Thirty-One

It’s time for another episode of the Fantasticast. This time around, Steve and Andy are joined by the mighty Shawn Engel, host of Just One Of The Guys and co-host of Two True Freaks: Walking Dead Wednesdays. Shawn joins us for one of the most interesting and enjoyable issues from this period – Fantastic Four #28: We Have To Fight The X-Men. No prizes for guessing who guest-stars in this issue…

Then it’s on to Strange Tales #122, which features Three Against The Torch – Doctor Doom’s super-powered henchmen going up against our flaming hero.

Today’s post sees the Flame On count surpass Reed’s Stretchy Body. I’d celebrate with champagne and oysters, but that seems a little extravagant for catchphrase counting… Continue reading

The Fantasticast Episode Thirty – Horny Namor ( #hornyNamor )

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2013 by quizlacey

Episode 30

 

It’s the 30th episode of The Fantasticast, and our first episode of 2013.

To kick off the new year, we start with one of the longest running plot threads in the Fantastic Four – that love triangle between Sue Storm, Reed Richards, and Namor the Sub-Mariner. It’s time to wrap this plot up and put it to bed, and Fantastic Four #27 almost does that. We also say goodbye to inker George Roussos, and sadly he’s not leaving on a high…

Then it’s over to Strange Tales #121 and the highly-anticipated dreaded return of The Plant Man, before taking a fast dip into Daredevil #2 to see how a guest appearance by Marvel’s First Family helps or hinders the second issue of this troubled title. We end with a song and a new closing tag.
