Pharoah's A Jolly Good Fellow
Hello, and welcome to episode 319 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.
This time on the Fantasticast, we're returning to Earth as an aged Fantastic Four, a non-aged Galactus (how does he age, anyway?), and a brand new herald arrive in New York city, hot on the trail of the Sphinx. Who is actually in Egypt, indulging in fantasies of an idealised past that would make even the most fervent Brexiteer green with jealousy.
Marv Wolfman, John Byrne, Joe Sinnott, Carl Gafford, John Costanza, Jim Shooter, Walt Simonson, and Irv Watanabe present Fantastic Four #212, which reveals the origins and intentions of the Sphinx, dumps Sue into a customised fridge, contains a startling revelation about a computer, and contains just enough Nova to avoid Nova Classic volume 3 being prosecuted under the Trade Descriptions Act.
