The Fantasticast Episode 258: Fantastic Four #185 - Here There Be Witches

The Fantasticast Episode 258

The Fantasticast Episode 258


Hello, and welcome to episode 258 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

Where there be witches? Here? Here there be witches? Uh-oh... we'd better be nice about them, then. And considering that the witches that be here eventually give way to Salem's Seven, that's not going to be easy... Yes, the Fantastic Four continue their baby-and-nanny hunt with a trip to New Salem, a town hidden behind a terrible wind. Make your own jokes...

Len Wein, George Perez, and Joe Sinnott introduce us to Nicholas Scratch in Fantastic Four #185. And if you think his name is suspicious, that's nothing compared to his beard... All this, plus some retro uniforms, a very specific form of subtlety, and a sort of heat portal thing that totally makes sense, oh yes.
