The Fantasticast Episode 97: Fantastic Four #83 - Shall Man Survive?

The Fantasticast Episode 97

The Fantasticast Episode 97

Enid Blyton's Memorial Plaque

Steve and Andy return once again to tackle the Silver Age of the Fantastic Four. This week, the focus is on Fantastic Four #83, featuring the culmination of Maximus' plan to hypnotise the world into submission. Will the Fantastic Four unite to take down the mad monarch, or will they end up as bystanders in their own title?

We also read some e-mails, play one of the greatest number one singles of the 1960s, and get very hung up on just who wrote Peter Rabbit.

With episode 100 coming up, we want your questions for us to answer. Ask us anything - about the Fantastic Four, about comics, about geekdom, or about us. Send them in to and we'll answer them on our 100th episode in a few weeks time.
