Meadows, Airplanes, and Hypnosis

Hello, and welcome to episode 261 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, we return to jolly old London town for the further adventures of Ben Grimm in the Land of Blighty. Both the Thing and Spider-Woman find themselves on the trail of the missing Alicia Masters, to stop HYDRA from turning her into a horrific spider-mutant. Meanwhile, the most unlikely treasure hunt since the last Nicholas Cage movie continues.

Yes, it's Marvel Two-in-One #31, presented by Marv Wolfman, Ron Wilson, and Sam Grainger. As well as kicking holes in the plot, we examine the events of the Blitz, the use of body horror in contemporaneous Marvel comics, the appearance of Spider-Woman-Woman, and the events that made Andy remark, ?I don't think they thought this through..."
