Hi folks, It's Steve from The Fantasticast here, as always. In lieu of a panel chosen from an old Fantastic Four or Strange Tales comic today, I'm taking a few moments to ask you, our readers and listeners, to help us out.
Don't worry - I don't want money!
Andy and I put a lot of time and effort into the show to make sure it comes out every week. As well as the 3 hours (or so) recording time we spend every couple of weeks, there's the time spent reading the comics and writing our synopses. I then sit down and write the notes of history and the Marvel Universe for each episode, as well as summarising the Bullpen Bulletins and letters pages, a task which can sometimes take a lot longer than you might think. Following the recording, I then spend 4-5 hours per episode (8-10 hours per record) editing the show into shape, tidying up our stammerings and editing out more libellous content than you could imagine.
It's a big job, and it's a pleasure to do. Your e-mails and other feedback tells us that you enjoy what we do, which makes us want to do it even more.
So, where do you come in?
Again, don't worry - I don't want money!
What I'd love for you to do is to spend a couple of minutes talking about the show. You could tweet about the show (with a link), you could share one of our posts on Facebook, you could tell your friends at your local comic shop. And more than anything else, we'd love for you to go to iTunes, and leave a rating and a review.
With 80 episodes covering over 2/3 of the Stan Lee and Jack Kirby collaboration on The Fantastic Four, we'd love to become known to more fans of the team and fans of comics. We'd love for you guys to lend us a hand in growing the show. Please do take a moment to help spread the news about our show and how much you enjoy it.
