Hello again to all you lovely lads, lasses and beautiful non-binary babes.
I write today with an exciting annoucement; a brand new serial drawing inspiration from Super Sentai/Power Rangers, etc.
Presentinging for your consideration: FANG FORCE!
When evil emerges after centuries long hibernation, tour guide Lindsay is called upon to lead the soldiers of the Great Vampire King. With the powers of the bat, wolf, beetle, spider and mountain lion the five heroes battle injustice as Fang Force!
The story will be released in ‘episode’ format, with three parts – one released weekly – making up an episode. So far I’ve completed four episodes, and aiming to finish up to seven in the next month before release.

On our last show, Miranda, Lily, Tom and Keiran were delighted by the transgender representation in major supporting character Rachel Bighead as part of Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, and continue to talk about great trans figures in speculative media.
Then, Miranda lets loose to explain tokusatsu; a Japanese genre encapsulating live action and special effects.
Finally, the team takes a look at new trailers for the week, including Wonder Woman: Bloodlines and The Addams Family.

On our last show, Miranda and Clayton visited the DC Universe and dived into the litany of LGBTQ positive content provided; including material from Young Justice, Supergirl, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, Krypton, and more!
Then, Miranda went a bit batty with her view on DC’s animated Batman: Hush, and had a giggle over the seven issue comic mini-series The Batman Who Laughs.
Plus, Clayton reviewed not just one, but two films called Escape Room – both with the same plot!
They say that all pizza is good pizza, but eating under threat of a cruel adept left it churning in Tanya’s gut. She would have opted out completely, but Laser Lass insisted at the point of a loaded finger gun. Hours later she was still on the verge of throwing up.
No sooner had the doppelganger left than Tanya ran for her car. She threw herself into the driver’s seat, slammed the door shut, and inhaled as though every breath were her last. Soon she slowed, anchoring herself in the present, just like her psychologist had showed her, and reason took hold.
The situation was screwed beyond comprehension. What was she supposed to do about it? Sure, she didn’t want anything to do with the world of heroes, but that was no longer an option. Now that life was touched by the supernatural there was no going back. Anything else was wishful thinking.
Tanya gripped the wheel. Kaira, or at least what passed for her in some distant nightmare, stared through her long after she was gone. There was no compassion to her, no wonder. Every word from her mouth was a misanthropes barb designed to cut; like a laser, she supposed. The Kaira she knew shone.Continue reading “Glimmer Girl #29 – “Crossing Over” (Part 5)”
Tune into Geeks Out, now on Monday nights at 8pm on Joy 94.9!
This last episode, Miranda, Clayton and Keiran return to the treasure trove of new trailers spewing out of San Diego Comic Con 2019, and give you the latest from Harley Quinn, Steven Universe, Watchmen, Westworld, Snowpiercer, and His Dark Materials.
Featuring the track ‘True Kinda Love’ from the upcoming Steven Universe movie.
We were safe, I think. That’s the important thing. Away from the filthy streets, the roadblocks, and giant robots that nearly blasted us to dust. Kevin and I could rest, eat and recover… even if it meant sharing space with a most dreaded enemy.
Dr. Fellows approached Kevin and I with a pair of mason jars filled with a dark, steaming amber liquid. He set them down on the makeshift table, once an industrial spool for copper wiring, and smiled in a way that shouldn’t have been possible for that face.
“Would you like sugar?” he offered. “I don’t have any cream, unfortunately. Dairy is in short supply around here.”
This was not the Dr. Fellows that I knew and loathed; the impetuous engineer for whom ego took second place to human life. Instead he was like Mr. Rogers; soft spoken in good company, and polite to boot. How such a cruel world turned such a wicked man kind was a mystery for the ages.
Diana and Steve head into the Lion’s den to face some modern day Nazi’s – But Diana’s past and present collide as they’re confronted by one of her own! Learn the fate of Diana’s Mother and prepare for the fight of Diana’s life on Man’s World!
Imagine the kind of genius that takes a bat to a hornet’s nest. It was that kind of thinking that ripped Kaira Cade through a hole in the multiverse. One minute she was minding her own business, idling time tempting cats with a pointed laser finger – the next she was in a room of suits and scientists, wondering what the hell.
Someone, she decided, had a death wish.
Before they had a chance to draw their guns she was in the air, shimmering in gold and raining blasts toward every corner. They exploded on impact and seared the surfaces with sparks equal parts deadly and beautiful. She fired indiscriminately but with grace, forcing her unnamed enemies – and they were her enemies – into hiding.
In what fresh hell had she found herself, and why? There was no shortage of foes determined to put her down, and one in particular whose name she dared not ponder.
She paused and searched for an exit. The agents fumbled as their eyes adjusted. One of them blurted, “Glimmer Girl’s gone crazy!”
Glimmer Girl? The masked Kaira Cade pursed her lips. “What in the Great Satan is a Glimmer Girl?”
In the center of the room, crouched by the whirling machine, was a green haired prowler with a mysterious device in hand. Kaira nursed a moments confusion before they turned the orb they held. She started for them, only for the stranger to vanish into thin air. They were of some importance; that much was clear.Continue reading “Glimmer Girl #27 – “Crossing Over” (Part 3)”
