Cosmic Treadmill ep. 139 - Blackest Night #1 (2009)


Hello, living comics enthusiasts! In this episode, as part of this year's #JLMay event, Black Lanterns Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) take a look at the first issue of Geoff Johns' and Ivan Reis' Blackest Night series, published in 2009 by DC Comics! After some biographical information, the heart-eating pair describe how the Green Lanterns title got to this point, then they jump right into every acrid, viscous page of the comic in question! After a break, they talk about the other shows involved in the #JLMay event, and read a little bit of listener mail! This may be the last podcast you ever listen to, you don't want to miss it!

  1. Hello, I'm a first time listener b/c of the Blackest Night JLMay crossover. I'm enjoying what I'm hearing and can't get over the fact that Reggie sounds like/reminds me of old Today Show movie critic Gene Shalit. Keep up the great work and I'll be back for more podcasts.

Chris is on Infinite Earths, Episode 27: Adventures of Jerry Lewis #105 (1968)

It's Labor Day in America... and while a lotta folks might think of barbecues and getting the day off from work, your host's mind...
