The Other Other Murdock Papers Podcast Podcast

Hello and welcome to the 44th episode of the show. This week, Andy and Steve are joined by Christine Hanefalk, writer of theThe Other Murdock Papers blog and host of The Other Murdock Paper podcast. Why do we have such an incredibly awesome co-host who has dedicated large amounts of time and creativity to a blind lawyer who is definitely not a super-hero oh no not at all?

Well, Fantastic Four #39 is the first of a two-part epic featuring an attack from Doctor Doom, a powerless set of heroes, and a special guest-appearance from Daredevil! As well as this, Strange Tales #133 sees the return of the Puppet Master in a tale that... well... it's an issue of Strange Tales. 'nuff said.

All this, and singing, mispronunciation, impressions of Jackie Mason, some thoroughly filthy suggestions regarding what Reed can do with his technology, and a special appearance of Stan's ability to completely forget the names of his characters.

Check out this special post from The Other Murdock Papers here, and why not drop Christine a follow on twitter?

Love (And A Sodding Big Dragon) Is In The Air

In the second half of our coverage of books cover-dated February 1965, love blossoms unexpectedly. Steve and Andy take a look at Fantastic Four #35, as a giant dragon somehow comes to life and terrorises Ben and Reed's alma mater. Then in Strange Tales #129, some gubbins involving a train and some pathetic henchmen.

Two Not-That-Fat Men On Fantastic Four

Now, you all know Steve L's not that much of a fat man

But did you know his favourite team is the FF?

The Family who punches dirty turkeys in the face.

That's right, True Believer, punch all those turkeys. Pun 'em in their turkey necks.

So, every two weeks this not-much-of-a-fatty's

Gonna chat about a foursome with his good friend Andy

And these turkeys get wordy 'bout New York like it's a real place!

He hasn't got a wife or daughter,

Malice is loose and Reed ain't caught her

(Go get 'em, stretchy turkey, you on a villain hunt now)

Get ready turkeys, we goin' crazy, chattin' 'bout the Four with Andy and Steve!

Well, that was a different way to open the show...

This week sees a slightly-shorter-than-usual episode, for a few reasons. One is we're only covering two comics this time around. Another is that Strange Tales doesn't have a great deal going for it. And another is that Steve's mic was creating some pretty bad sounds, so he edited the heck out of the episode to minimise its impact.

In Fantastic Four #34, the mysterious tyrannical tycoon Gideon tries to prove his superiority by defeating the Fantastic Four, whilst Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver call in on the Baxter Building in Strange Tales #128. Oh, and Avengers #12 is covered in about 30 seconds, which may be a new podcast record...
