Other news for the Headcast family...

As usual, The Headcast Network is where you can find all of my podcasts under one feed.

Over on The Starman/Manhunter Adventure Hour, where I'll be talking about the Will Payton Starman and Mark Shaw Manhunter comics.

Then, look for G.I. Joe: A Real American Headcast the first week of the month, where we look at G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero issue 12 and the fifth episode of the second cartoon series, Revenge of Cobra, in our one year anniversary episode.

The following week, look for Head Speaks episode 25, where I'll be talking about something.... 

Finally, be sure to return next month and listen as I talk about Suicide Squad issues 14-16 for our two year anniversary with another special guest host.

But before you listen to that episode, be sure to look for Ryan Daly's Secret Origin Podcast episode 28 where we look at the origin of Nightshade in a lead up to next month's story arc.
