The Fantasticast Episode 2: Fantastic Four #2 and #3

The Fantasticast Episode 2

The Fantasticast Episode 2

Secret Invasion Tie-In

No, really. Fantastic Four #2 was included in the Secret Invasion: The Infiltration trade paperback. So it counts.

Hello, and welcome to the special edition of episode 2 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

This week, we're taking the tentative second steps on our journey through the lives and times of The Fantastic Four by taking a look at the second and third issues of the comic. In Fantastic Four #2, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby start flexing their cosmic muscles, introducing one of the mainstay alien races of the Marvel Universe, the Skrulls. In Fantastic Four #3, we get The Miracle Man. Well, not every one can be a winner...

We also take the time to reveal of your (and our) favourite podcasters lent their voices to our original trailer. And then, once all the original fun is done, Steve takes a few minutes to reflect on the second episode, the successes and the regrettable mistakes. Oh, and if you've been wondering where the outtakes from this episode were? They've been found. Finally, you can find out why Andy was laughing a little bit at one point. It's good when a mystery gets solved...
