Reed Richards vs Skype Latency

Hello, and welcome to episode 135 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

This time around, it's an episode full of firsts. Future Fantastic Four writer Roy Thomas contributes to the book for the first time, scripting the first-ever fill-in issue of the Fantastic Four, a blisteringly good take on the issue of racism. It's the first issue of the book to feature the new Fantastic Four logo, and this is the first episode of the show to feature Sam Savage's adaptation of that logo on the episode cover. It's the first appearance of a new Marvel hero - The Black Leopard! And it's the first appearance of AUNTIE... OK, not all the firsts are that notable!

As well as this, we're teasing some special episodes in our immediate future, celebrating the best of Brummie rock, encountering a suprise guest-villain, participating in The World's First Grant Morrison Impression Showdown, discovering who wins in Steve vs Andy vs Comics vs Racism, and meeting a bunch of brickies dressed up like women. All this, and more, in our coverage of Fantastic Four #119.
