Deja Vu All Over Again

Hello, and welcome to episode 148 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

It's the dawning of a new era for the Fantastic Four as Roy Thomas comes on board as the regular writer, with Fantastic Four #126. And what better way to start a new era than by revisiting the start of the previous era? Yes, it's time to retell the origin of the Fantastic Four, complete with extra dialogue, homages to Jack Kirby's panel layouts, and some alarming trousers.

Joining us to examine this new beginning is our regular cover designer, Sam Savage. Sam's responsible for each individual episode image, and we're celebrating 100 episodes with his work. Both Sam and Andy have also featured together in the latest Back Issue magazine, which we also find the time to discuss as well. Follow Sam on twitter at @SLPSavage

We also have an excerpt from the Power Records adaptation of this comic. The full audio and scans of the pages can be found at the Power Records blog run by Rob Kelly of the Aquaman Shrine. Do check it out!
