SFP-NOW Chat Marvel Shows, Pennyworth and Much More
We're back and this month Ian and Ben have a proper chat about the Marvel shows as well as DC and Pennyworth. We start the show by discussing our excitement about 'Falcon and Winter Soldier and how it explores the post 'Avengers Endgame' world by introducing a new villain who put us in mind of a psycho orphan Annie. But is she really all that bad?We also discuss the release of a new Graphic Novel called Adler. Which is the League of Extraordinary Women and kind of explores what happens in turn of the century England when someone from one of the English Colonies begins to fight back for her people. And finally for fun. We discuss the new Disney + Mighty Ducks series and try to figure out a way to justify talking about it on a podcast, which is supposed to be about sci-fi and comics. So please tune in. Chill out and laugh along with us as we shoot from the hip. Also you can now follow us on Spotify. Look for SciFiPulseRadio

Tis the season and we here at SciFiPulse Radio and SFP-NOW wish you a merry one. In this special episode, which we recorded in early December.

We also discussed Ahsoka Tano and speculate a little about how she may be used in future Star Wars projects. Additionally. Given the time of year. We also discuss a few of our favorite Christmas Movies and TV shows. So ho ho ho and all of that. Apologies for Ben's sound in this episode.
