Topless Johnny

Hello, and welcome to episode 174 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, Steve and Andy are looking at Fantastic Four #144, the conclusion to the Doctor Doom/Darkoth saga, as brought to us by Gerry Conway, Rich Buckler and Joe Sinnott. Things are so dire that not Johnny, Reed, nor even Coach Thorne's wife can stop Doctor Doom!

We're also taking a peek at Amazing Spider-Man #130 and the grand debut of the Spider-Mobile. On top of this, Steve's talking' 'American', we discover a new way of skipping some boring stuff, and we celebrate the first appearance of Johnny Storm's left and right nipples. It's a packed episode!
