Ep.231 – Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers No. 12 (1983)
Growing Up With the Lost Ranger
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée shake forearms with Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers no. 12! In the 1980s, Jack Kirby snuck one past the copyright gestapo with Captain Victory, a stealth continuation of his legendary Fourth World comics in the guise a new IP. Free and clear from any legal action, Kirby and the good captain traverse the stars, making friends with computers and ruminating on the meaning of valor! It's a nostalgic trip back to the days when the phrase "toxic masculinity" was mostly referring to all of the radiation your space sled was constantly pumping out.
