This Impulsive REVIEW looks at Captain Punishment, the innovative audio comic book and its “All Girls Spectacular” episode.
A female private eye types away at her report on continually misogynistic strife and ventures off into each of the increasingly crazy superhero adventures.
We got to see the antihero mister, I mean, Captain Punishment, himself, at their New York Comic Con booth last year and were blown away!
Captain Punishment is a unique listening experience and the art, via sound, has a wicked sense of humor.
The episode “All Girls Spectacular” kicks off with a word from their fictional sponsor, ‘The Pat Roberts Abstinence Kit,’ and then a further mention of menses, an upset jockey speaking up against making 50% more than the female character Betty Simone, because she is a woman in this phenomenally funny comic where women also strive for equal pay in today’s society and fail.
When one boy in school is transformed to a girl to experience how different the world treats them, the enchantress aptly says, “Our synced up cycles are about to start.”
The menses humor helps make the temporary gender reassignment entertaining and hilarious, and it is only the start of the superheroes conundrum in this episode.
The outrageous, and oft politically incorrect, adventures in this hour long audio comic surprise you with enough randomness to be one of the great early episodes of Family Guy.
The voices are pleasant on the ear, and could just as easily be working a DreamWorks movie, providing it is a much more adult (fun) version.
Realistic views on comic con, geeks, cosplay, and science fiction nerdism makes a strong showing in this show.
Podcasts from good radio-like disc jockeys are great, but for comic book fans, Captain Punishment trumps all!
We are talking about an audio comic book here, complete with quality productions and sound effects that offer a way for the blind, or the audiobook crowd, to enjoy a fully immersive comic book experience.
Captain Punishment and the entire cast have combined their creative voice acting and writing talents, not to mention love of all things comic books, to invent this audio comic book genre, and they are taking the podcasting community by storm.
The writing, the voice acting, and the production quality from Captain Punishment are top notch, fluid and entertaining.
If you have ever experienced a comic book convention you are in for an impactful twist when all the male superheroes disappear and panic ensues.
I mean they even have an alert for that scenario: “security went to Code Fuchsia”!
Tune in to Captain Punishment early and often on their site captainpunishment.com!
