Cryptic Title

Hello, and welcome to episode 190 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 time to go giant-size once again, as we get to grips with the epic storytelling on display in Giant-Size Fantastic Four #3. Ancient beings return to Earth, equipped with innate abilities to hasten the destruction of humanity, and only the Fantastic Four can do something about it. That is, of course, assuming that they can survive the coma-pox!

It's a story that truly deserves the title 'giant-size', brought to us by Gerry Conway, Marv Wolfman, Rich Buckler, Joe Sinnott, and an uncredited George Perez. It's packed full of detailed art, contemporary references, subtle morality, and a highly confusing conclusion. All this, and we ban George RR Martin from listening to the show!
