Stephen Lacey and Andrew Leyland are your guide to Marvel’s First Family, The Fantastic Four.

Psycho Man, qu’est-ce que c’est?
Hello, and welcome to episode 283 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’re off for a proper, slap-up Hollywood dinner, complete with ghostly father, soup that fights back, and absolutely no children. The Psycho Man(‘s armour) is back, the Invincible Man is also back, Reed’s having nightmares, and Ben’s having bouillabasse.
Marv Wolfman, Keith Pollard, Pablo Marcos, Glynis Wein, Joe Rosen, and Jim Shooter present Fantastic Four #196, in which a babysitter is despatched, stars are spotted, Johnny Storm definitely isn’t Luke Hamill or David Cassidy, and nobody notices a fight in a restaurant. Just your average issue of the Fantastic Four, then.
