The soldier Gibson is now a Lieutenant, and his first day on the job proves deadly when the forces of the Black Country and A.C.E.S. appear in the vulnerable Sector 200, killing recruits under his command. It is up to Gibson, General Knox, and Auto Corp Captain Atlanta Westley to discover who let them pass, and how deep the conspiracy runs in “Caught in the Crosshairs!” (6/5)
THE HUNT ROLLS ON!
The mysterious discovery made by Valentina and her hunters reveals itself to have a horrific fail-safe.

Find out in “The Electric Swarm!” (6/6)
THE URBAN AVENGER IS BACK ON THE ATTACK!

CRACK OPEN THE SPEEDFREAK FILES!
In another high-octane adventure, Nic and boys aren’t crazy about seeing another band on Doc’s stage. It isn’t long before the black-furred frontman and his friendly competition have to team up and take down a wicked carjacker in “Rivals Ride Shotgun!” (6/8)
SEE THE WORLD IN TALES FROM THE FRONT LINE!
Learn what it takes to be a cabbie in the 25th century from one of the perkiest in the business. Luna Carmino tells all about herself and a handsome machine named Moe in “Running the Marathon!” (6/9)
IT’S UP IN FLAMES FOR ALAN FIREDALE: DESERT DELINQUENT!
Join the daring red wolf and his steadfast automotive steed Golden Cloud in another thrilling audio adventure. Firedale, Goldie, and two new friends find themselves trapped and forced to face their darkest fears in the surreal horror of “Caged Inferno!” (6/5)
We look forward to seeing you all next week as we deliver some of our strongest stories and most exciting escapades yet!
The Byte of the Week
Our final Byte of the Spring Season takes you into cyberspace! You’re placed in the shoes of Jon Aegel from previous story Acc Vult as he faces the black digitized abyss and finds himself in the presence of none other than A.C.E.S. herself. And you find yourself with a choice. And make no mistake…
The Choice is Yours. Make it Count.
May God Bless You and This Force. See you Monday!
