MY JOURNEY HAS ENDED
THIS PLANET SHALL SUSTAIN ME UNTIL IT HAS BEEN DRAINED OF ALL ELEMENTAL LIFE
SO SPEAKS... GALACTUS!
With these words, so ends the first part of a three-part story regarded by many as the peak of Marvel's 1960s comics.
Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland tackle Fantastic Four #48, wrapping up the opening story in the saga of the Inhumans, and introducing the Silver Surfer and Galactus to the Marvel Universe.

Sue's Inappropriate Haircut
When would be the least-appropriate time to get a haircut? 10 minutes before you're expected to walk up the aisle? Halfway through the Mens 100m Olympic final? Or on board a plane zooming halfway around the world, chasing a myserious super-powered being who has kidnapped another mysterious super-powered being and who may very well turn against mankind?
Well, the Fantasticast is here to reveal this answer. Steve and Andy get to grips with Fantastic Four #47, as the saga of the Inhumans steps up yet another level. The Royal Family is back together, we go to Attilan tfor the first time, and we meet Maximus - but is he Magnificent or Mad?

Who Seeks The Seeker?
Hello and welcome to the 52nd episode of The Fantasticast. There are now enough episodes for you to listen to one a week for an entire year. But it's not just about obvious and underwhelming numerical facts!
This time around, Andy's got a cold, and Steve's taken advantage of that to create the most revolting episode introduction yet. We're covering Fantastic Four #46 (in Andy's case, in a liberal dose of snot), as the Inhuman saga heats up and we get to see just how much of a badass Black Bolt is. We also find out which international celebrity spoiled the end of Breaking Bad on twitter during the record (don't worry, that spoiler is not repeated).
But most importantly of all, we launch our first listener question. We want you, lovely listener, to tell us what Fantastic Four stories you feel are underrated. When we (rightly) venerate the runs of Lee/Kirby, Byrne, Waid/Wieringo, and Hickman, which runs, stories, issue or miniseries do you feel don't get the attention that they deserve? E-mail us, tweet us, facebook us, comment us and let us know!
