Hulk? Smash!

Hurrah, it's another Weter-iffic episode of the Fantasticast! But why is it Weter-iffic? Well, dear listner, it is Weter-iffic due to the presence of our latest guest-host. You may have heard him on Superman Forever Radio, Green Lantern's Light, The New 52 Adventures of Superman, or PADSMASH: An Incredible Hulk Podcast. He is J. David Weter, and he joins us for the seminal Fantastic Four #12, featuring ol' jade-jaws himself, The Incredible Hulk.

Following this, we stop off in Strange Tales #106 as the Acrobat causes mischief, mayhem, and the abandonment of something very important to the nascent Johnny Storm. And finally, we celebrate the publication of the iconic Amazing Spider-Man #1 by taking a look at the team's first ever appearance outside of one of their own titles.

Patriotic Pedestrians Proceeding from Planet Poppup Prefer Poorly Produced Podcasts

I don't consider our show poorly produced, but we have been experiencing sound quality issues that do affect this episode. Sorry!

This week Steve and Andy are on their own, and they're taking a look at two slices of Silver age scrumptiousness. First up is Fantastic Four #11, featuring the first appearances of Willie Lumpkin and The Impossible Man. And then, to finish off, there's Strange Tales #106, featuring the second appearance of most of the Wizard.

S(&)M Studios!

Stephen and Andrew are (mostly) going it alone this week, taking a look at Fantastic Four #9, which gave us the first appearance of the classic Silver Age Marvel trope, the use of a film shoot to cover the plans of a nefarious ne'er-do-well! There's fun galore as the signal flare is used and abused, as Stan and Jack cram in a bunch of celebrity cameos, as the Human Torch faces off against a fire-proof tribe, and Ben and Namor get down to business in one of the best fight scenes yet in the book. And then there's Strange Tales #103, which has some mucking around in the 5th dimension (not that one...) in a fairly forgettable story that has already slipped my memory.

We're also briefly joined by Jon M. Wilson and J. David Weter of The New 52 Adventures of Superman to establish just what the heck went on with the last episode...

Like A Puppet On A String

This week, Andrew and Steve are joined by veteran podcaster Joshua Lapin-Bertone, formerly of Amazing Spider-Man Classics and currently of Clone Saga Chronicles, The Spider-Man Crawlspace and Bertone Beatle Bonanza, amongst others. Josh is a veteran of the Silver Age, despite not having lived through it, and was also the voice for Namor in our amazing trailer, so we couldn't wait to get him onto the show.

This time, we cover the first appearance of Philip and Alicia Masters in Fantastic Four #8, whilst the Wizard and his alarming choice of facial hair pop up to render a future retcon null and void in Strange Tales #102.

The Strangest Tales Of All

Hello and welcome to the fifth episode of the Fantasticast. Andrew Leyland and Steve Lacey are your guides today as we journey through Fantastic Four #7 and Strange Tales #101, the first issue of that title to feature the (almost) solo adventures of The Human Torch. Along the way, we nearly redo a gag from a previous episode, get highly distracted by anything shiny nearby, and, almost by accident, manage to provide some commentary on the issues!

Super-Villain Cavalcade

Welcome to the third episode of The Fantasticast, the fortnightly show where Steve Lacey and Andrew Leyland take a look at every issue of the Fantastic Four from the very beginning. This time out, we take a look at Fantastic Four #4 and #5, featuring the first appearances of two of the greatest antagonists for the team: Namor, the Sub-Mariner, and Doctor Doom.

Oh, and we reveal the truth about the hosts: Our well-crafted outer appearance of mature and responsible adults completely crumbles when faced with a story in which Namor's mighty horn features prominently.

Fnarr...
