Because It's About Time Someone Did!
Hello, and welcome to episode 137 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.
We're taking a break from our usual format this week to take a look back, in the first of three special episode to celebrate the release of the new Fantastic Four movie. In the style of the rather wonderful Rachel and Miles X-Plain The X-Men, we're taking look back at the first 51 issues and 3 annuals of The Fantastic Four. And Strange Tales. But not for long - we promise!
Starting with the Mole Man and ending with the bald bloke, it's a breakneck romp through the origins of the Marvel Universe and the creation of a legendary comics, encompassing some of the greatest comics ever published, some of the most iconic villains in comic-dom, and the Infant Terrible.
