Waiting for Doom


Episode 144: JLMay 2019 - Blackest Night!

May 30, 2019

The dead are rising…but it is your fairly sick and unhealthy hosts, OR, is it the terrifying arrival of the Black Lanterns?!? Well, actually, a little of both. The podcasting event JLMay is back, and this time the subject is the epic crossover event from 2009, Blackest Night! In a weird coincidence, neither Mike nor Paul (moreso Paul, when this was recorded) were feeling particularly healthy as they discussed the Doom Patrol tie-in issues to this event.

But enough about those 2 sickos! If you’d like to hear more about the DC Universe taking on these undead Lanterns, make sure to visit The Podcast of Oa and tune in to episode 138 for background info on the event - and then visit these fine podcasts for the rest of the story!
