POW!

This is a bit of a Thrilling Adventure Hour in-joke. You see, the one character, Sparks Nevada, who is the marshal on Mars, has a pair of robot fists. Which he uses to dispense justice on the red planet. Naturally.

So, TAH had a 9th anniversary show earlier this year (happy birthday, guys!) which I went to, and every time the robot fists were mentioned, the audience loudly and enthusiastically yelled "POW!" As they do. 

Anyway, I got this idea into my head and this is the result. A piece of fan art really. But the really cool thing? They sold this design as a t-shirt at the live shows! I got mine (signed by the cast and creators!) as you can see.

And here you have it – an exclusive perk of attending the live show!

Thrilling adventure on the road

The Thrilling Adventure Hour is a live show (recorded for a weekly podcast) in the style of old time radio, performed at the Largo theater in West Hollywood. They take the show on the road from time to time and I have been fortunate enough to become involved in creating promotional material for these away shows.
