Thrill to the adventures of All American Girl and her plucky sidekick The Scarlet Skunk as they wage a two-fisted battle against injustice! Is post-war America ready for a Lady Crime-fighter and a cross-dressing vigilante? Will they find love on the rooftops of New York City? Find out in a tale unlike anything you have witnessed before!”

“I mustn’t forget to mentioned the heart that shines through in this piece too. While the show’s affection for superheroes is clear, it also takes time out of its day to be about something substantial.”  Thomas Burns Scully


“Far from your average superhero tale” “A nuanced character study” Emily Gawlak


“A super observation made powerful because it flows from the glossy red lips of a man who champions the right to present himself as a woman”
