OTV returns for one final hurrah, this time with the VCR crew joining as the ship sails into the sunset.

We discuss the new Free Comic Book Day issue, which has a short Bloodshot story with some interesting movie tie-ins, and then move on to the main event, a Josh Dysart, Doug Braithwaite, and Diego Rodriguez X-O Manowar story. It is the perfect story on which to end the run.

Speaking of ending runs, this OTV marks the end of the Valiant Comics Review show. For five years VCR has been the weekly review show in the OTV family, and we are shutting the doors and signing off for the last time.

Thank you, we couldn't have done this without you listening on the other end. 

Stay Valiant.
