Episode 25 :JLMay - Blackest Night - Starman 81

Greetings Starhunters!

This month we're taking a break from our usual coverage as the shadow of The Darkest Night falls upon us....



Yes this month, we join the JLMay crossover as we look at Starman 81 on Episode 25 :JLMay - Blackest Night - Starman 81.

No, we're not looking at Will Payton Starman, but the next Starman book that came after ours.  What do I think of it?  Tune in to find out...

But before you listen to our show, you need to listen to the first four shows of the crossover (to find out how we got here).

The Podcast of OA for issue 0.

Then go to Chris and Reggie's Cosmic Treadmill for issue 1.

Then The Idol-Head of Diabolu for issue 2.

The listen to the Fire and Water Podcast for issue three.

And then, only then can you come back here to listen to the Starman issue (that ties in).
