How Do You Avoid Sadness?

Hello, and welcome to episode 150 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

150. That's quite a number, and one we're really proud of. Nearly four years to the day after we sat down to record our first episode, we're passing a century-and-a-half's worth of episodes. Thankfully, we've got a cracking Fantastic Four issue to take a look at, with Roy Thomas and John Buscema's Fantastic Four #128.

It's a subterranean tour de force, with the Mole Man, Kala and Tyrannous battling it out for dominion of the underworld. There's a legally-mandated bonus set of posters, a good thing, a good read, the question of Mantis or Moondragon, and the mystery of the missing preacher. We've packed this episode with geekery, trivia, and the inability to read out loud. Would you expect anything less?
