It’s a giant-sized episode of The Fantasticast for a giant-sized issue of the Fantastic Four. Annual #6 features the first appearance of the classic villain Annihilus, as well as the birth of Franklin Richards. To celebrate these milestones, Steve and Andy have invited a special guest onto the show – Al Kennedy, of the House To Astonish podcast.

Together, we examine the most in-depth exploration of the Negative Zone to date; pick holes in 1960s natal care, discover The Adventures of Night Optometrist, explore the etymology of Annihilus, take up residence in the Arenas of Crochet and Cribbage, listen to Anihilus Sings Barry White, play Star In A Reasonably Priced Fantasticar, and get the only Acrobat update  you’ll ever need to receive.

Don’t forget to answer out Listener Question – Are you currently reading Fantastic Four, and why?

The Fantasticast Episode Forty-Eight: Lo, There Shall Be An Episode

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , on September 7, 2013 by quizlacey

Fantasticast Epiosde 48

Lo, there shall be a cover image. Redesigned by Sam Savage (more on him later) to better show off both the glorious Kirby cover artwork and the glorious Georgiou artwork.

Lo, there shall be a guest host. Sam Savage (see? I told you there’d be more of him) joins us this week to try his hand at speaking out loud. He does a pretty good job of it!

Lo, there shall be a coverage of Fantastic Four 48, featuring the wrap-up of the Frightful Four trilogy quadrilogy pentalogy wait, just how long has this story been going on for anyway?

Lo, there shall be an announcement about the future of the show that is completely genuine unlike the one where we fooled a couple of people into thinking we had quit the show.

Lo, there shall be an overly-dramatic and tedious joke throughout the shownotes for this episode.

Lo, there shall be listening of the episode below, or clicking of this link to go to the libsyn page for the episode.

The Fantasticast Episode Forty-Seven: Because Once Just Isn’t Enough

Episode 47

(Oops, I can see I gave Sam the wrong X-Men cover to use for the image. That’ll teach me to arrange podcast stuff when drunk. Aside: It won’t.)

Hello and welcome to the 47th episode of The Fantasticast. There’s a strong sense of deja vu in the air today, as thanks to a recording failure, Steve and Andy are doing it all over again. So, for the second time, we’re covering Fantastic Four #43, wherein an evil Ben Grimm does his best to help the Frightful Four defeat the Fantastic Four. We’re also checking in with X-Men #13, wherein a slightly-brainwashed Johnny Storm does his best to help the X-Men defeat the Juggernaut.

Along the way, we discuss Omnibuses, the departure of Matt Fraction, the awesomeness of Karl Kesel, the un-awesomeness of the original X-Men logo, and we have special guest-appearances from every guest-host we’ve had on the show to date.

There’s also some singing. Sorry about that…

The Fantasticast Episode Forty-Six: Change, My Dear, And Not A Moment Too Soon

After 19 months and 46 episodes, Steve and Andy have decided to call it a day. Join us at the start of this episode as we broadcast live to the world to exclusively announce who the next hosts of the Fantasticast are. The betting has been hot, Rich Johnston keeps naming other potential hosts other than the ones who will be announced, and shortly, the secret will be revealed. Here’s hoping all of the anticipation isn’t in aid of a 30 second opening gag that ultimately changes nothing…

Hello and welcome to the 46th episode of the show. For real. Steve and Andy are trying a new way of recording, hoping to make Steve sound like a normal human being, and we hope you’ll notice an improvement in the sound quality of the show.

It’s a shorter episode than normal, as there’s only one comic up for coverage this time around. So, we take a bit of time to trawl through the e-mails and feedback we’ve been receiving recently. Then it’s into Fantastic Four #41 as the Frightful Four make their return with devastating consequences for the team.

Hello and welcome to the 45th episode of the show. This time around, Steve and Andy are once again joined by Christine Hanefalk of The Other Murdock Papers to examine the guest appearances of Daredevil in the Fantastic Four. Well, half a guest-appearance at least. In Fantastic Four #40, the team, along with the Man Without Fear, take part in the Battle of the Baxter Building against none other than Doctor Doom. Then in Strange Tales #134, everybody’s favourite non-interferer turns up to interfere. That’s right, The Watcher is back.

This is our final episode covering Strange Tales as a core Fantastic Four title, and instead of leaving on what you might assume to be a down note (come on, there is a small chance that the story might be pretty good), we decided to produce a list each of five things that weren’t terrible about Strange Tales.

Check out The Other Murdock Papers here, and follow @Chris_TOMP on twitter here.

Feedback can be sent to fantastic4podcast@gmail.com (please do send us an e-mail – we’re doing a feedback show next week). It can also be left in the comments below, or over at ffcast.libsyn.com
