Ep 156 - Cosmic Ghost Rider: Baby Thanos Must Die

This Week:  You knew him as the Punisher. Frank Castle made a deal with the devil that made him the Ghost Rider. A deal with Galactus made him cosmic. And a deal with Thanos made him...dead?! Not to worry, Castle doesn't die easy. He's coming back - and he's got a plan to make the universe a better place! It all starts with an idea so simple he cannot believe no one has ever done it before. But as with all things worth doing, it's not going to be easy. And things soon get truly weird - as Castle takes on space sharks, faces down the future Guardians of the Galaxy - and runs into Galactus during a bar fight! It's Frank...er, the Punish...um, Cosmic Ghost Rider in the craziest caper he's ever had to deal with!

Ep 124 - Manifest Destiny

This Week: In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out from St. Louis, Missouri with the intent of blazing a trail to the western coast of North America-a trip that would set the foundation for the future of the United States of America. But what the history books don't tell you is the true purpose of Lewis and Clark's journey to the west...

In this imaginative retelling of their famous trek, Lewis and Clark embark on a secret mission under direct orders from President Thomas Jefferson. They are going to do more than explore the wild frontier: they're going to catalog exotic life and eliminate the monsters that stand in the way of the safe and rapid expansion of the United States. Join us for Manifest Destiny, Volume 1: Flora and Fauna.

Next Week: We start our Sports Ball Month with Muhammad Ali vs Superman.  Two legendary figures meet for the first time in this spectacular adventure, as an alien race called the Scrubb demand that Earth's greatest champion battle their world's own greatest fighter. Both Superman and Muhammad Ali step forward -- and to determine who is truly Earth's greatest fighter, Superman temporarily loses his powers and faces Ali in the ring. Ultimately, the duo must work together to defeat the Scrubb, with Ali taking on their champion while Superman battles their space-armada.

Ep 113 - Fogtown

It’s Pride month again, so its time for: Pride 2: Electric Boogaloo

This Week: A gritty, graphic pulp fiction about the temptation, damnation and redemption of aging private eye Frank Grissel.

Frank Grissel is a hard-knuckled private eye – and a deeply closeted homosexual, set in the very real world of 1953 San Francisco. Aided by his long-suffering secretary (and sometime live-in lover) Loretta, Grissel’s search for a runaway girl winds up with him becoming a suspect in a string of gruesome murders. The case takes twists and turns through the Golden Gate’s greasy underbelly: the beguiling arms of Chinese shipping heiress (and smuggler); an unexpected reunion with the daughter he abandoned long ago; the loss of Loretta to the sadistic clutches of the high-powered “Colonel;” and finally the horrifying, gender-bending truth.

Next Week:  At last! Everyone's favorite no-nonsense powerhouse, America Chavez, gets her own series! Critically acclaimed young-adult novelist Gabby Rivera and all-star artist Joe Quinones unite to shine a solo spotlight on America's high-octane and hard-hitting adventures! She was a Young Avenger. She leads the Ultimates. And now she officially claims her place as the preeminent butt-kicker of the entire Marvel Universe! But what's a super-powered teenager to do when she's looking for a little personal fulfillment? She goes to college! America just has to stop an inter-dimensional monster or two first and shut down a pesky alien cult that's begun worshipping her exploits before work can begin. Then she can get on with her first assignment: a field trip to the front lines of World War II - with Captain America as her wingman!
