The Fantasticast Episode 26: Strange Tales #119 - The Torch Goes Wild

The Fantasticast Episode 26

Ha! Not So Different After All!

We present the 26th episode of The Fantasticast, wrapping up our coverage of the Fantastic Four-related books released in January 1964 - namely Strange Tales #119. The cover dares us by declaring the Rabble Rouser to be 'strangely different', and we're not a podcast to back down from a challenge!

As well as this, we fit in the usual business missing from last week, including the guide to reprints and collections, the British number one, the death of a vagrant, outtakes, and some interesting bits of discussion that didn't quite fit in anywhere else.

We also welcome back Michael Bailey as our guest-host, and we'd like to apologise for exposing him to the Rabble Rouser.
