In this week’s ball-webbing episode, Magnus finishes the conclusion of the finale of Tremendous Bendis Weekly, a megaseries dedicated to some comics written by Brian Michael Bendis that are actually pretty rad.

Yes. Rad. Say it out loud, you’ll feel better.

Rad…

Anyway, these Bendis comics are mad, bad and rad. And that’s why His Excellency is spending so much freaking time talking about Bendis, you see!

The main reason for all this is because of the fact that, let’s face it, Bendis has his fair share of detractors.

Whatever the origin of all this belly-aching might be, a lot of comic mavens give Bendis comics the cold shoulder. Or they turn their backs on them. Or they turn their cold backs to the shoulder. Or some freaking expression.

But Magnus is having none of that, boys and girls!

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!”

In spite of the deluge of ass-kickery in this week’s rad episode, Magnus *MADE* time for feedback! Yes indeed! You asked for, begged, demanded and a few of you even threatened. And now it’s here! Feedback!

“But Magnus, but Magnus, what about the rest of the backlog of you haven’t gotten to yet?”

Patience! That process is beginning this week and there’s more to come in the future! So fear not, true believer!
