Steve & Andy Throw Their Normal Format Out Of The Window, Choose Some Comics To Review, And Have An Unfeasibly Long Episode Title

Hey everybody! We did it! We made it to the end of our first year! Yes, one year ago (give or take a couple of days), the first episode of the show was released. To celebrate our first birthday, we decided to abandon our issue-by-issue format for one episode only, and do a little something special. A podcaster's choice, if you will. So, we chose an issue each from the entire length and breadth of the Fantastic Four and its related titles, with only one rule - No Stan & Jack.

Andy dove into the mid-1980s and chose the main secondary title from that decade, The Thing, by John Byrne and Ron Wilson. In fact, it's the second issue of that title, taking a long-overdue look at the early days of Ben and Reed's friendship and Ben's first love. Steve chose his very first Fantastic Four comic, the final issue of the legendary run by Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo - Fantastic Four #524.

So, join us for two of our very favourite issues. Feel free to tell us about your favourite individual issues of the Fantastic Four by e-mailing us at fantastic4podcast@gmail.com

The Fantasticast Episode 19: Fantastic Four (2005) Commentary

NOW It's Time For A Move Commentary!

Greetings from the Olympic Park in Stratford, London! Steve is away helping people with mobility issues to move around the park, sneaking into events, and meeting Oscar Pistorius. Andrew's enjoying the last dregs of his holiday. Between us, we've had minimal editing time, so we thought we'd take a different tack with this week's show. Instead of working through a couple of issues of Fantastic Four and Strange Tales, we thought we'd sit down and watch Fantastic Four (2005), and record a commentary.

Join us as we journey through the team's first (released) cinematic outing and see how we feel about the film seven years after its release. We also take a brief moment to evaluate the upcoming Marvel NOW (not a) reboot of the Fantastic Four titles.

No emails or trailers this time around, but we'll be devoting a bit of time on the next episode to catch up on our mailbag, so do send your comments and thoughts on the show, the comics, or even the film to fantastic4podcast@gmail.com
