Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Cosmic Treadmill Special: Young Animal “Gatherum”, Episode 9

October 4, 2018

Our Young Animal revisit has officially reached "the staples"!  That's right, we are halfway through our planned 18-episode look at the pop-up imprint that could!

This week... It's really one'a them "Good News, Bad News" situations... ya see, after a few months... we finally get that next issue of Doom Patrol.  Thing of it is... it kinda smells like filler.  It looks great though... and gives us our Allred-fix, which is a good thing, since Bug! took the month off!

In addition to that issue of Doom Patrol, we will be discussing the penultimate issues of Shade and Cave... Mother Panic shows up too!

These discussions originally aired as segments during the following episodes of the Weird Science DC Comics Podcast:

Episode 134 (07.30.2017) - Doom Patrol (vol.6) #7 & Mother Panic #9

Episode 135 (08.06.2017) - Shade the Changing Girl #11

Episode 137 (08.20.2017) - Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye #11
