Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 1

August 9, 2018

Greetings, Dangerous Humans!  As we are currently in what might just be the final month of DC's Young Animal imprint, your Young and Animalistic hosts, Chris (@acecomics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) thought it might be fun to share with you their initial thoughts on the launch!  In this extra-sized (or, over-sized) episode they look at all four "number one" issues.  Since the Young Animal launch was staggered from September-November, 2016... there are also a couple of "non-number one" reviews in there as well.

Head back with us into the not-so-distant past... and relive some Young Animal memories.  Learn just how much we initially hated Mother Panic, and how over the Moon we were with Doom Patrol and Shade the Changing Girl... boy, how that changed!  Feel free to follow along at home... let's send the Young Animal imprint into the sunset with a smile.

***Warning: We might be a little bit looser with our language during these episodes
