And Phil just can’t help but nitpick plot holes just because they don’t make any sense and hurt the narrative. What a stickler!
We talk about a book we’ve been awkwardly avoiding for years, DC’s 2004 event: Identity Crisis. This is one of the biggest DC stories we’ve covered and it’s the one that proved just how cynical Alan Moore’s influence was. So we should hate it, right? Well…
On this episode, we dip into the first half of Identity Crisis. We’ll finish it next time, don’t worry! Ryan’s a giant hypocrite who likes this book (but WITH ASTERISKS, HE SWEARS). Darryl finally found a superhero story that he doesn’t think is dumb (most of the time). Phil just loves big anime fights. Sly packs this episode with more lore than ever.
Hoo boy, this one’s a rough one. We’re talking about the Original Edgelord of Comics, Alan Moore and his second volume of The League Of Extraordinary Gentleman.
