I decided, after enjoying Jonathan Hickman’s work leading up to Secret Wars (you know, that thing I did that series of near-Wikipedia entries on), to go back and read through what was by all accounts an equally epic Fantastic Four run.
Yesterday as I type this, I read the trade that included the “death” of Johnny Storm, the Human Torch. Yeah, even if I didn’t know he was coming back, I wouldn’t have believed it.
This week on the podcast, I couldn’t listen to the whole thing because I’m only nine and a half episodes into Daredevil and need to finish it before I finish the podcast. It happens. I’m not overly concerned about spoilers, but some geeks are. Ryan beat me atop the head with a length of rubber hose for mentioning a character in passing appears prominently in one episode, and he needed to be avoided until the red haze of rage passed from his face. It was the most fun editorial meeting we’ve ever had.
So, it’s time to tell Jenny to pay her Fantastic Four bet.
