That’s all there is to it! I hope to see you in this thread, this coming Saturday afternoon as we fly into the action and adventure of Freedom Fighters: The Ray!


Woot! I watched this a while back while bingeing everything in DC’s HBOmax existence and was blown away! That was the first time I’d ever heard of these characters!


Nifty! Did the show (which was edited into a movie, just like Vixen, for any wondering) inspire you to check out other comics with The Ray and/or the Freedom Fighters?


100% I didn’t realize it started as a show, how cool! I’ve actually had the Ray on my reading list for quite some time so the book club selection gives me the perfect prompt to put it on the top of my virtual stack and finally read it!


Awesome! :hugs: I look forward to your thoughts! :slight_smile:


Just tossin’ this out there. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything that’s DC-based, or the topic at hand, but “ray” is in the title of the song, so…it’s close enough. Kinda, not really, I know, but it is Warner Brothers-owned, so it’s under the same corporate tree as DC at least. All the same, enjoy. :superman_hv_4:


Four hours and fifty minutes to go, @JusticeLeagueBookClub! :partying_face: :confetti_ball:

I hope to see you attend the animated fun! :clark_hv_4:

Just under one hour to go, you rays of WAL light! :sunny: :slight_smile:

is sure to thank @Shayera.Hol for the banner :00_hawkman:


Anytime! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


Did the banner go poof and disappear, or is it still up and flying? I saw it, and then it blinked out, like a star, or…a…ray of light. :wink:

Banner is still up and flying! It appears on my end; did you perhaps accidentally click the X and dismiss it? :female_detective:
