What if.... That's how many genre stories start.  Today on GeekFest Rants Carlos will visit the world of Alternative History, also known as Speculative Fiction.  We have a vast selection to pick from, like Red Dawn, Watchmen, The Man in the High Castle, and A Handmaid's Tale, to name a few. 

Then we return to Return of the Jedi Kenner action figures.  This time we hit the 77-79 backs with classics like the Max Rebo Band and the Emperor. 

And on our comic book segment we travel back in time to Escape from the Planet of the Apes. How does the comic book measure up against the movie? And whatever you do don't call the apes monkeys.
