Episode 145: Doom Trekking with Ron Randall

The last traces of HixPox continue to ravage our hosts, but that hasn’t stopped us from crawling back into the studio for a new episode.

This week we are in the gap between seasons of the Doom Patrol TV show, so enjoy a spoiler-free News Patrol segment (technically News-free too).  

Then we spend some quality time with legendary comic creator RON RANDALL as he shares about his experience as co-penciller on Doom Patrol volume 5. He also tells us about his latest creator-owned TREKKER: BATTLEFIELDS Kickstarter campaign.

LET’S GET TREKKING AND PATROLLING!

  • Doom Clock - 7:27

  • Doomsplaining - 12:00 - This week we are joined by special guest Ron Randall, to discuss his work on Doom Patrol volume 5 as well as the Kickstarter for his latest book, Trekker: Battlefields!

Episode 144: JLMay 2019 - Blackest Night!

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!
