It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, love ’em or hate ’em, are set to make their return this coming summer and it looks our “heroes in a half shell” will have a a few new baddies to contend with as well as a very familiar pointed return…see what I did there? Megan Fox is back as April O’Neil as is Will Arnett as her panicky cameraman, Vernon Fenwick. The newcomers to this film will make any Turtles fan thrilled. Joining Shredder are long-time baddies Bebop and Rocksteady played, respectively, by Gary Anthony Williams and WWE Champion Sheamus (billed by his real name Stephen Farrelly). The man who makes it possible to get our favorite baddie warthog and rhino is Baxter Stockman, played by Tyler Perry. Fear not though, the Turtles get some new back up with the introduction of Casey Jones, played by Arrow’s Stephen Amell as well as the appearance of the “Party Wagon”, in this film a gigantic trash truck that spits manhole covers like a machine gun. It would appear, right at the beginning of the trailer, that we may also get some extra-dimentional involvement which can only mean one thing: Krang. We will see what unfolds on June 3, 2016 but for now, enjoy this first peek at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows.

The Half Shelled Heroes Enter Gotham…

(Joshua Gilmore Staff Writer)

We still have a long wait until the dark knight rises on the big screen and faces off with the last son of krypton, but this November the Caped Crusader will cross paths with the heroes in a half shell. As announced during the recent San Diego Comic Con, IDW publishing and DC Comics will publish a crossover of Technodrome proportions.
In a six part miniseries, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the arch rival Shredder will enter Gotham City, after being forced out of their own dimension by the evil Krang. As they battle to return home, the turtles and shredder will cross paths with Batman.
When this news broke, the hardcore and fair weathered comic fan understood the magnitude of this event. Each franchise has historic legacy behind their characters and they are not strangers to reinvention or crossovers.
“Batman is the world’s most popular Super Hero. He continues to be reimagined and this new crossover showcases his ongoing appeal as a global pop icon for the ages,” said DC Comics Editor-in-Chief, Bob Harras.

As Batman is not a stranger to reinvention, the dark knight knows his way around a cross over or two. The world of Batman comics have had a revolving door similar to the guest stars list from the 1966 Batman television series. The storied history of Batman crossovers range from his shocking interaction with the MARVEL universe to the world of Tarazan and many other characters in between.

In their over 30 year history, the turtles have had their fair share of epic events and universe crossing. In one of their most recent crossovers, the turtles entered the universe of the Ghostbusters (another highly popular IDW title) and their universe jumping can be traced back to their first interactions with Usagi Yojimbo in the pages of 1987’s “Turtle Soup”
  As the comic book world waits for these issues to hit the market, we know the story will be written by James Tynion IV and artist Freddie E. Williams II will handle the art for this series. Also, the co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kevin Eastman and a yet-to-be name artist will create the variant covers for the crossover event.
