In this week’s ball-stretching episode, Magnus resumes the ongoing continuation of the proceeding of Tremendous Bendis Weekly, a megaseries dedicated to some comics written by Brian Michael Bendis that are actually pretty kewl.

Remember when people used to type “kewl”? And wasn’t it rad?

Maybe not…

Anyway, these Bendis comics are pretty rad though and that’s why His Excellency is spending so much freaking time talking about them!

The main reason for that is because Bendis certainly has his share of detractors.

Whatever the cause of the discontent might be, a lot of comic mavens turn their noses up merely at the name “Bendis” in the credits.

But Magnus is having none of that, ladies and gentlemen!

Yes indeed, kiddos, while Magnus is hardly a Bendis devotee (particularly lately), it would be accurate to say that His Excellency has enjoyed several Bendis stories and, it so happens, was in a mood to gab about some Bendis stories.

And, to finally get to the point here, the spotlight shines this week on the ‘Fantastic’ storyline from Ultimate Fantastic Four #01-#06.

What’s so special about Fantastic, you ask? In part, it relates to His Excellency’s relative ignorance about Fantastic Four comics; a fact, by the way, Bendis detractors should keep in mind when they type up their weekly hate mail.

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “Reed thought Victor was making improvements to the computer but then *THIS* happened!”

Due to the deluge of ass-kickery, unfortunately there’s just no time for listener feedback this week.

However, there has been a fair amount of feedback (and feed-forward!) fairly recently so this subject hasn’t been entirely ignored.

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in due time. Next week, in fact! So fear not, true believer!

In the meantime, though, don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, your emperor permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
