The Fantasticast Episode 134 (300)

Undoing The Incursions

Hello, and welcome to episode 134 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, we’re taking a look at Fantastic Four #118, as Johnny Storm tries to undo Crystal’s  brainwashing, Diablo plays with his chemicals, and Ben Grimm takes a journey to Earth-A, where everyone looks like Reed, except… Reed? We’re also taking a look at Sub-Mariner #45. I say we… does anyone have anything they want to confess?

We’re also taking a look at Dan Slott’s greatest achievement, and… other fun things, but I forgot to take notes, so I’m just desperately filling space here. So, that Game of Thrones, huh? Boy, words are hard to think of…

The Fantasticast Episode 133: Fantastic Four #117 – The Flame And The Quest

The Fantasticast Episode 133 (300)

Expository Pyjamas

Hello, and welcome to episode 133 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

Much like Breaking Bad, this episode of the Fantasticast is all about Crystal (I apologise for that terrible joke). Fantastic Four #117 starts the search for Johnny Storm’s true love, with Archie Goodwin and John Buscema weaving a globe-trotting, Thing-scaring tale. We’re also looking at Sub-Mariner #44, where an evil hippie-burning Johnny Storm helps Namor against Llyra and Tiger-Shark. Finally, we’ve a brief peek at a few panels of Avengers #94, a true turning point in the Kree-Skrull War.

As well as all this goodness, we present The Adventures of the Cul-De-Sac Crew, the greatest unintended consequence of Secret Wars, and Bagpuss in cosplay. As for what happens when Rita Repulsa meets the Sub-Mariner… you won’t believe what happens next!

The Fantasticast Episode 132: Fantastic Four #116 – The Enemy… The Ally… And Armageddon!

The Fantasticast Episode 132 (300)

Doom Shall Lead Them

Hello, and welcome to episode 132 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, Steve and Andy present a giant-sized episode, covering Fantastic Four #116 and Avengers #93 – both oversized, 25c special issues. In FF #116, the Over-Mind saga concludes with a shocking plot twist completely spoiled by the cover. Aganst all odds, the Over-Mind finally presents an interesting and formidable threat to the Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom, and the entire planet. Here’s hoping a deus ex machina doesn’t resolve this plot…

We’re also looking at Avengers #93, which doesn’t feature any members of the Fantastic Four. It doesn, however, feature some utterly astonishing artwork from Neal Adams and Tom Palmer, as well as the deadliest cows ever seen in a Marvel comic. And when the only other notable cow in the Marvel Universe is Bova, that doesn’t mean much.

Presented by gross, bumbling idiots and fumble-witted fools, this episode features Johnny Storm vs the pit from The Dark Knight Rises, an examination of Agatha Harkness’s mutant ability to remove agency from the Fantastic Four, and the greatest entrance to date of Doctor Doom.

Planet Of The Moderately-Trained Baristas

Hello, and welcome to episode 131 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

The saga of the Over-Mind trundles on, with an extended origin flashback for the villain in Fantastic Four #115. Stan Lee’s on holiday, so we welcome Awesome Archie Goodwin as scripter for the Fantastic Four for the next few issues. Steve fails to do an interview, Secret Wars II continues (sort of) in this podcast, and the true origins of Parallax are revealed.

To help us through this issue, we are proud to welcome fellow podcaster W. Blaine Dowler to the show. You may know Blaine from his e-mails to the show, from his podcasts covering the X-Files or comic book science, but you should definitely know him from his Unofficial 75 Greatest Marvels podcast, available at bureau42.com – go check it out, as both Andy and Steve have made guest appearances over there.
