Introducing The Fantasticast's Patreon Campaign!
Hi, we are Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland, and we are the hosts of The Fantasticast, a podcast guide to the Fantastic Four from the beginning of the Marvel Age of Comics. We aim to work our way through each issue of The Fantastic Four week by week, along with the various spin-off titles, guest appearances, cameos, and more.
We've been producing the show for the past four years, and over 150-odd episodes we've gone from 1961 to 1973, taking in every issue and annual of the Fantastic Four, every Human Torch story from Strange Tales, and a whole bunch of cameos and guest-appearances in titles including Marvel Team-Up, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man. As we move into 2016, we'll be expanding our coverage to include Marvel Two-In-One, as well as continuing to chronicle every appearance of Marvel's first family across the mid-1970s.
The Fantasticast is free to listen to, and we have no intention of changing that. However, after four years, we've realised that we need some help to move the show on to the next level, and that's where we're hoping that you might come in.
We'd like your help to cover our immediate costs, namely hosting the show, before looking to fund upgrades for the show. We'd like to consolidate our podcast site with our blog into one website. We'd love to upgrade our equipment. We absolutely want to send some money in the direction of those who provide for the show out of generosity, especially our episode cover designer, Sam.
We're not asking for a lot, but if you can send something our way, we'd be very grateful. We're hoping to give you something in return - we have plans for special Patreon backer-only content that will enable you to feel superior to other podcast listeners - whilst making The Fantasticast better than ever. Please head on over to our Patreon site to see details of the pledge levels and reward tiers.
