Ep 158 - Gotham City Garage

April 22, 2019

This week: In the distant future, America has become a wasteland, all save one unexpected haven: Gotham City, a forcibly domesticated utopia run by Governor Lex Luthor with the aid of his brutal enforcer, the Bat. Young Kara Gordon has no idea what lies outside Gotham's borders, but she's about to find out!

When an act of mercy pits Kara against Luthor's forces and even her own sister, Barbara Gordon, she flees into the "freescape," a desert fought over by motorcycle clubs, chief among them the Gotham City Garage. These tougher-than-tough women--among them unexpected versions of Harley Quinn, Catwoman and more--quickly learn that Kara is more than she appears, even before she demonstrates superpowers that reveal her to be more than human! They may even embrace Kara as one of their own, but only if she lives long enough! 

DC's greatest heroes and villains are reimagined as bikers in Gotham City Garage Vol. 1, based on the stunning line of DC Collectibles statues!

Next Week:  Welcome to Neo-Tokyo, built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by a blast of unknown origin that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, making him a target for a shadowy agency that will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like the one that leveled Tokyo. At the core of the agency’s motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear of an unthinkable, monstrous power known only as Akira.

Katsuhiro Otomo’s stunning science fiction masterpiece is considered by many to be the finest work of graphic fiction ever produced, and Otomo’s brilliant animated film version is regarded worldwide as a classic.
