Hello, and welcome to episode 170 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.
It's here. We made it. We're finally starting out coverage of Marvel Two-In-One, and what a wonderful cluster of Things it is! The Molecule Man('s son) brings together Marvel's favourite Things for one of the best team-up issues we've covered to date. With writing from Steve Gerber, art from Gil Kane and inks from Joe Sinnott, this is a great start to the second Fantastic Four spinoff series.
In amongst all of the Thing/Man-Thing action, we've also got the tricky issues of codename copyright, one of the most horrific deaths seen so far, queries about the distribution of the Daily Bugle, and the first confirmed sighting of pornography in the Marvel Universe. We also take a moment to remember one of the most prolific Fantastic Four pencilers, Paul Ryan, who passed away this week.
