The Fantasticast Episode Thirty-Seven: Yes, Mr Lister Sir!

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2013 by quizlacey

Episode 37

Hello and welcome to another episode of The Fantasticast! This time around, Steve Lacey (20 Minute Longbox) and Andrew Leyland (HeyKids Comics) guide you through three excellent slices of Silver Age Marvel magic. Yes, three. We’re classing Strange Tales this month as officially ‘Not Crap’.

Fantastic Four #33 sees Lee and Kirby break the formula and conventions of the title to create genuinely exciting and innovative read, supported by some of the best art that Kirby and Stone have produced to date. Strange Tales #127 sees a mysterious villain challenge Ben and Johnny to a desert race to find out who is the better driver. Amazing Spider-Man #19 sees Peter Parker regain his mojo, and team up properly with the Human Torch for the first time. No snarkiness, no jokes, just great comics.

And some snarkiness.

And quite a few jokes, now that I come to think of it.

Today’s lop-sided extract show what a crushing bore Ben can be whilst showing off. Actually, he’s not a bore at all, but I couldn’t think of another pun related to the images. Maybe something about being under pressure? Nah… Continue reading
