Walls Aren’t Elastic

Hello, and welcome to episode 145 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’s we’re diving into part one of Stan Lee’s final story for The Fantastic Four, with Fantastic Four #124. Keeping in line with his return to the book, it’s a revisiting of a concept already seen in the book, the mysterious, mute, monster from the Black Lagoon. Will this be a new facet of a confused yet fun story, or a pointless rehash mixed with a lot of running around? Join us, as we find out.

We also check in with Incredible Hulk #153, which sees the Hulk in trial for the destruction and chaos he’s caused. With Matt Murdock defending, Reed Richards finds himself faced with a moral quandry. It’s a mega-Marvel bonanza, guest-starring… well, almost everybody.

The Great Galactus Bake-Off

Hello, and welcome to episode 144 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

And lo, there shall be an ending, of a sort. With Galactus poised to eat the entire planet, it’s up to Reed to do the equivalent of reading the small-print, before bragging to the entire planet. Well, when you’ve got the equivalent of a brain the size of a planet, you might as well let everyone know! Fantastic Four #123, Stan Lee’s antepenultimate issue of the Fantastic Four, is our issue for this episode.

However, it’s not our only issue. We have a very brief peak at Captain Ameria and Falcon #150, before taking a more leisurely browse through The Incredible Hulk #152, featuring the prelude to the Trial of the Incredible Hulk. All this, and a detailed look at career paths in the US Army of the Marvel Universe, and the discovery of Galactus’s PIN. And featuring Richard M. Nixon as himself!

How Many Seamen On The Love Boat?

Hello, and welcome to episode 108 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 welcome Emily Middleton of the Relatively Geeky Podcast Network to the show. As the host of Uncovering The Bronze Age, Emily is ideally positioned to help us transition from the 1960s to the 1970s. And, as the daughter of previous guest-host Alan Middleton, she even has our Skype contacts already on her computer!

We’re covering a veritable stack of comics this episode. Fantastic Four #94 features the first appearance of Agatha Harkness, the return of the Frightful Four, the naming of the younger Richards, and a very scary cat. We’re also taking a look at Incredible Hulk #123, where Reed is responsible for a big change for Bruce Banner, and Namor, The Sub-Mariner #21, where Ben Grimm records a voicemail message.

As well as all of this, we’re also taking a very brief look at our experiences at the recent Thought Bubble convention. Spoiler: It was awesome!

The Fantasticast Episode 107: Fantastic Four #93 – At The Mercy Of Torgo

Yet Another Piece Of The Action, See?

Hello, and welcome to episode 107 of The Fantasticast, see? Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four, see?

OK, we’ve done that joke to death. This week sees us tackle Fantastic Four #93 as the saga of The Thing’s enslavement on the gangster world with gladiatorial deathmatches comes to a close. Not necessarily a conclusion, but it certainly stops. Do the Fantastic Four have an actual role to play in the issue? Will the long-promised battle between Torgo and the Thing live up to expectations? And what happens when mobsters start arguing the finer points of the rulebook?

We’re also taking a rare side-trip into The Incredible Hulk with issue #122. Reed’s got a cure for the Hulk, and it’s the first Hulk/Thing battle in several years. Herb Trimpe’s on art, and without spoiling too much, this issue is a pleasant surprise. We also examine the contents of the Hulk’s green-skinned grab bag, which is less of a pleasant surprise.

Fansplaining Earth X

Join hosts Stephen Lacey and Andrew Leyland as they venture down into the Sub-Atomica, the Microverse, the worlds within worlds. Fantastic Four #76 sees Reed, Ben and Johnny on the trail of the Silver Surfer, seeking his aid to prevent Galactus from consuming the planet Earth. Featuring a not-very-surprising guest-villain, and more pregnancy-induced hysteria than you can shake a stick at.

We also take a brief look at the moral conundrums of Reed Richards in Incredible Hulk #105. On top of this, we have your favourite non-Fantastic Four Fantastic Four stories, we pose a new listener question of the month, and there’s a double-dose of British number-one singles.
