The Fantasticast Episode 162

Socially Cordial Recaps

Hello, and welcome to episode 162 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, we’re covering Fantastic Four #138, featuring the return of three beloved characters last seen in the Lee/Kirby era. One is Johnny’s college dorm-mate, Wyatt Wingfoot. Another is Wyatt’s wannabe football coach and interesting plot-dodger, Coach Thorne. And the third is… uh… the Miracle Man.

The Miracle Man and Coach Thorne. Just let those sink in.

It’s not all bad, however, as Alicia experiences minute plot development, Johnny gets a reverse haircut, and Steve and Andy present the latest instalment in their irregular series, How To Speak In A New York Accent.

The Fantasticast Episode 158

I-Spy: Gil Kane Edition

Hello, and welcome to episode 158 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

Things are a little quieter this week for us, as we take a look at Fantastic Four #135. Of course, quieter is a loose term to use for an issue that includes a rampaging Dragon Man, Gregory Gideon and his cyber-suit of power, Medusa’s hair, Sue’s emotional trauma, and the betrayal of Thomas Gideon. Gerry Conway and John Buscema present the final appearance of one of the Fantastic Four’s earliest villains.

Oh, and a terribly-constructed prison cell, an overly-dramatic Alicia Masters, the most unlikely Time Magazine Person Of The Year, a terrible choice for a flight path, a mysterious stranger, and Stan Lee’s fake Willie. It’s a packed issue, but is it any good?

The Fantasticast Episode 155

Roy Thomas’s Illicit Wank

Hello, and welcome to episode 155 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 looking at Roy Thomas’s final issue of the Fantastic Four for a couple of years. It’s the concluding part of the two-part story pitting Crystal, Quicksilver and Johnny against the Alpha Primitives in the Inhumans’ Great Refuge, and big changes are in store for the team by the end of the issue. Costume changes, lineup changes, relationship changes, writer changes… everything’s changing!

It’s a story of maturity, and a story of confused imperialistic themes and of misplaced audience sympathies. It’s also a story of Steve trying to tiptoe through the language of talking about this, with mixed success. It’s also a story of Black Bolt’s Coffee Shop, but that’s a very small part of the story.

The Fantasticast Episode 154

Flamenco Exposition

Hello, and welcome to episode 154 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 covering the first part of Roy Thomas’s final Fantastic Four story for a few years. John Buscema’s taking a holiday, so Ross Andru swings by to provide fill-in art for this story featuring Johnny Storm, Crystal and Quicksilver in the Great Refuge. The Alpha Primitives are revolting… and they’re not too happy about their status as slaves either!

It’s an episode packed full of romance, fill-in art, the intentional immorality of Benjamin J. Grimm, existential links, discovering that Crystal doesn’t know how to kiss, and the revelation that Black Bolt is The Karate Kid.

The Fantasticast Episode 152

Longbox Amnesia

Hello, and welcome to episode 152 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

Big changes are afoot in this week’s episode of The Fantasticast. Fantastic Four #152 sees the Frightful Four infiltrate the Baxter Building, striking a blow at the heart of the Fantastic Four. With the team seemingly broken apart and defeated, can the combined force of Franklin and Sue Richards save the day? What unthinkable consequences will their actions bring? And can this set of show notes get any more overwrought?

We also read your e-mails, plug our friends participating in Secret Convergence on Infinite Podcasts, discuss just why Reed Richards isn’t working for us in Secret Wars, encounter melodramatic Johnny Storm’s melodrama, and give more thought to Gorgon’s footwear than anyone has ever given before.
