Cosmic Treadmill ep. 73 - Fantastic Four #51 (1966)

January 14, 2018

Greetings, comic enthusiasts! In this episode, our sub-space explorers Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) examine a seminal issue in the legacy of Marvel Comics' First Family, issue #51 of Fantasic Four by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby! Including detailed bios of these titans of comic book history, they dive deep into the self-reflection and redemption of a character with no name in "This Man...This Monster!" Then, our literary duo discuss the nature of a tragic hero--and discuss some tragic heroes in comic books (with one special caveat)! It's an episode about humanity, that you won't want to miss if you're human!

Thanks to Aaron A for the book suggestion!
