Fromage a Trois

Hello, and welcome to episode 296 of The Fantasticast. Each week, Steve Lacey and Andy Leyland guide you through every issue, guest-appearance and cameo of The Fantastic Four.

A new era dawns for the reunited Fantastic Four, as issue #201 sees the team return to New York (via a couple of annuals and a few spinoff issues) and reclaim their home in the Baxter Building. It's more than just a geographical homecoming, as the team formally define themselves as a family for the first time, a surprisingly late development in the history of the Fantastic Four.

Marv Wolfman, Keith Pollard, Joe Sinnott, Francoise Mouly, John Costanza, and Jim Shooter present Fantastic Four #201 - Home Deadly Home. Computer run wild, a long-overdue Baxter Building cutaway doesn't reflect the actual plot, a balance of focus from FF #200 is redressed, and Ben proves surprisingly effective in rent negotiations. Who would have guessed?
