Heir to the LuxArn fortune, Matthew Arnold’s company provides illumination for cities around the world, but it’s his blazing brass mask that burns away the darkness in Beacon City. A former soldier, Arnold discovered he was a natural at waging war, and upon returning home he took up the role of Beacon City’s seemingly immortal protector, the Brass Lantern. In a world where insurance companies own the police and the uninsured have no recourse, Matthew Arnold fights for those who cannot fight for themselves, pitting his guns against the forces of John Countryman, the wickedest man alive. His fiance, Elaina Dare, is the only living person to know the secret of Arnold's dual identity. Blinding light. Blazing guns. Nerves of steel and a mask of brass, crime has nowhere to hide from the beacon of justice-- THE BRASS LANTERN
Death Swarm of the Robot King

A Must Listen
Thrills!! Suspense!! A well written podcast with a vintage feel. If you want to escape the stress of modern times, and immerse yourself into a great story, The Brass Lantern will do just that. The podcast flows well without rushing you through the episode, yet it leaves you wanting more. Kudos!! Bravo!!
Brings you back
This creation really takes you to the hay day of heroes. I’m personally a huge fan of the Batman animated show from the 90’s and The Shadow and this show really takes you into that type of world. Can’t wait for more!
Want something that will bring you back to a simpler state? Something that can remind you of your great grandfather smoking his deep vanilla scented pipe in suspenders sitting in his easy chair? Something that won't tie you down the way other media outlets do?
Here is a great production, with a tight plot and crisp characters. Akin to reading, this lets you imagine each scene on your own, which only brings about more of your own personal creativity. Finally... a vigilante that gets it right. One that knows what the people really want. Freedom and peace. One that goes out of his way to get us there, regardless of consequence and without any fear. And one that knows, respects, and appreciates, that his partner is part of the way-- a solid team.
I've listened to each episode while I cooked dinners and my teenage son (a Batman fanatic) is quite intrigued. He says, The Brass Lantern takes down what we all really want taken down, power and corruption, without the dilly-dallying of characters nowadays. And I have a feeling Matthew Arnold won't ever stop trying to end the corruption. A character we can all admire and enjoy.
What a wonderful time to bring the Golden Age of radio back to life! Think of the times when family and friends could all just gather and listen. Simple entertainment, making for extraordinary depth in many other aspects. Bravo and cheers!
