Disparaging The Words Of Clark Griswold

Hello, and welcome to episode 102 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

This week we finally get to Fantastic Four #88, after a previous attempt at recording the episode went horribly wrong. We managed to re-secure the services of the wonderful Shagg Matthews of the Fire And Water Podcast and the Who's Who: A DC Universe Podcast to help us through this issue.

And what an issue it is. Despite some fairly obvious warning signs, Reed and Sue decide to buy a very unsuitable house for them to live in with the still unnamed baby, and wouldn't you believe it - it turns out to be a sort-of-trap laid by a super-villain! All this, and Sue's collection of snow globes, job opportunities for hyper-intelligen space clouds, and we answer the burning question of the moment: Is hentai comic-code approved?

Shagg's latest podcasting venture is a guide to the Ultraverse comics published by Malibu in the 1990s. It launches this weekend, and can be found at
