The Fantasticast Episode 112: What The–?! #10 – I’ll Be Doom For Christmas

The Fantasticast Episode 112 (300)

To Save You, Why Must I Floss?

Hello, and welcome to episode 112 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey (for it is he) and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

It’s Christmas time at the Fantasticast, and Steve (for it is he) and Andy are continuing their annual tradition of pulling an issue of a Fantastic Four related title from outside of the reading order and covering it. Due to time pressures, Steve (for it is he) abstained from choosing an issue, instead throwing himself on the selection of Andy. And what a selection it is!

Steve (for it is he) is not prepared for the Onslaught of one of the most unique project of the 1990s. The X-Cution alone is worthy of comment, there’s Zero Tolerance for the insanity contained within this book. For lo, there shall be an issue of What The–?!. Steve (for it is he) can’t wait for the next episode of the show where the Heroes Return. And the terrible crossover-based puns finish.

The Fantasticast Episode 111 300

In The Kingdom Of The Mute, The Phlegmatic Man Is King

Hello, and welcome to episode 111 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

It’s the final episode of 2014, and taking advantage of the wintery season, Steve and Andy are taking a look at Fantastic Four #97, featuring a summer holiday, a trip to a marine mammal park, and a magical, size-changing submarine. Sensible plotting has been put on hold, as the motivations (and, indeed, the vocal properties) of the antagonist seem to change from page to page.

As an extra seasonal treat, we’re also taking a look at Silver Surfer #15, featuring a pitched battle between the Surfer and the Human Torch. Just like the Surfer’s own series, we also get a bit philosophical, looking at the flaws and failings of Stan Lee’s most personal superhero series.

The Fantasticast Episode 110: Fantastic Four #96 – The Mad Thinker And His Androids Of Death

The Fantasticast Episode 110 (300)Lurgi Strikes Britain. Well, Manchester…

Hello, and welcome to episode 110 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

This week on the show, Andy’s been hit with a terrible cold, and it sort of shows… However, this doesn’t stop him from teaming up once more with Steve and tackling the final Lee/Kirby Mad Thinker story. Can a good Mad Thinker issue be produced in the dying days of the run? And is it mere coincidence that Steve has been watching lots of Battlestar Galactica in the lead-up to recording this episode?
