Fantastic Four: Cutting Off Marvel's Nose To Spite Fox's Face?

For the last week or so, comics fandom has been up in arms over rumours that Marvel would seriously consider cancelling The Fantastic Four to avoid giving Fox any free publicity for their upcoming Fantastic Four film. Due to the time between recording and release (normally at least two weeks), this is something we're unlikely to cover in any detail on the show, for the simple reason that we will not be able to keep up with any news or developments as they happen. However, I've been asked by several people what my views and opinions on the situation are. This blog doesn't seem like the place for those opinions, so when former Fantasticast guest-host Seb Patrick asked me to write a piece on the situation for his comics website Panel Beats, I leapt at the opportunity. The piece is up, so please do head over and have a read of it.

In other news, this blog is taking a short break for the next few days. With the exception of the episode postings, there'll be no new content for the next week or so. I'll be away seeing my family and celebrating my birthday.

See you soon!
