Episode 22: CANCELED

FINAL EPISODE.

Ryan Daly reviews Black Canary #12, the last issue from the Blonde Bombshell’s 1993 series. But he can’t cover this story alone—it’s so ‘90s, it’s going to take special guest star Nathaniel Wayne from Council of Geeks to put this insanity into words.

All of this sets the stage for next year’s POWER OF FISHNETS Podcast devoted to Black Canary and the Mistress of Magic, Zatanna!
