Issue 97: 52 – Part 4: Our Story Concludes

52 52 52 52
Another crossover, a worm stuck in a loop… It’s something DC tried one time, and in the end was right. I hope you had the read of your life

All good things must come to an end, so we end the #flyerdrive right when we wrap up our coverage of DC’s year-long weekly series, 52. Do Phil and Darryl think it lives up to hype when Ryan and Sly described it as the greatest comic story every written? Find out as we cover issues 40-52! And make sure you listen to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 first because we will be following a strict NO RECAP rule.

On this episode, Phil gets very heated about steam engines, Sly can’t keep anyone’s name straight, Darryl gets buried with the Crime Bible, and Ryan seeds all the plots.

Issue 94: 52 – Part 1 – The Greatest Superhero Comic Ever Written (Maybe)

52 rules so damn hard.
52! 52! 52!

We’re going weekly, just like DC did after Infinite Crisis. We’re covering what Ryan and Sly have been hyping for years as the best superhero comic ever written, 52. Over the next 4 weeks, we’ll be covering 13 issues at a time of the year without Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.

On this episode, Phil falls for the Chinese Justice League, Sly enjoys a powerless Superman, Ryan talks about his favorite drink Gingold, and Darryl LOATHES space cowboys.

Issue 92: Infinite Crisis – Infinite Continuity Headaches

I still like Infinite Crisis
It’s pretty much this for seven issues

We’re in the weeds now, y’all. What we countdowned to last time has arrived. Infinite Crisis! We’re talking about the most “important” modern DC event. Is it worth the hype? Does it CHANGE EVERYTHING FOREVER?

Read along: Infinite Crisis by Geoff Johns, Phil Jimenez, George Perez, and Jerry Ordway

On this episode, Phil tries his best to learn about the Speed Force, Sly loves Jaime Reyes but never wants to talk about him again, Ryan spills the beans on who lost their virginity in Ma & Pa Kent’s barn, and Darryl learns the two most beautiful words in the English language: Psycho Pirate.

Issue 91: Countdown To Infinite Crisis – Isn’t Blue Beetle The Greatest?

All for the cost of a candy bar!

It’s finally here. Hold on to your butts, we’re gearing up to talk about DC’s big event. Not Crisis On Infinite Earths, the very different INFINITE CRISIS!

Read Along: Countdown To Infinite Crisis, The OMAC Project, and Superman: Sacrifice

On this episode, Phil is smitten with an AI (or just its text), Darryl is smitten with Wonder Woman, Sly does a heel turn and defends the structure of a crossover event, and Ryan is beaming with pride as Blue Beetle gets the love he deserves. This is a pretty big episode, not just because robots are taking over the DC world, but we also announce SIX future episodes!

Issue 89: How Many Ways Can A Robin Die? A Bunch!

Whoops, Robin's dead again.
Alfred, we gotta go get a new Robin again! Yeah, I know, it happened again.

On this episode, the gang watches Batman grow up and develop from only hallucinating Robin dying, to causing it, then to only witnessing it. Again and again and again. We cover a bunch of Robin’s fake out deaths from the 60s and 70s! Not to be confused with the time he actually died in the 80s, which we covered exactly a year ago!

Ryan is bamboozled by how AIR TIGHT the plots of these stories are, Darryl thinks Batman shouldn’t be wasting his time advancing science, Sly defends every comic in this episode, and Phil wishes Robin was actually dead.

Issue 88: Flex Mentallo – Man Of Postmodern Muscle Mystery

This is your brain on black mentallium

On this episode, the gang gets weird. We cover the standalone Doom Patrol spin-off book on everyone’s favorite HERO. OF. THE BEACH. Flex Mentallo! Never heard of him? Don’t worry, maybe it’s just because superheroes had to turn fictional to save our universe? Buckle up for a postmodern journey and remember, the fish gets changed more than the water!

Read Along: Flex Mentallo: Man Of Muscle Mystery By Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely

Darryl wants to know why this is all happening, Phil wants to know how this is all happening, Sly has given up, and Ryan’s as happy as a kid in a candy store. As our hero Grant Morrison says, “Those comics, they really #&@! you up something.

Issue 86: Shazam! DC’s Captain Marvel Gets A Reboot!

I guess this is my name now!

Note: An Earlier version of this episode with a missing ending was uploaded previously. This is the fixed one!

On this episode, we revisit Captain Marvel, but only just barely since he isn’t called that anymore! Just in time for Shazam! We cover the story that we’re pretty sure the movie’s based on, his retold origins from the DC reboot.

Read Along: Shazam By Geoff Johns and Gary Frank

Phil’s had enough of troubled kids with a heart of gold, Darryl knows who the REAL Santa is, Ryan has more knowledge about tigers in business suits than one might think, and Sly’s argues that Superman’s outlook is for babies and Black Adam’s is for big boys.

Issue 76: Identity Crisis Part 2 – The Murderer Was… A Plot Hole!

My feelings on Identity Crisis are still so torn
“What if the Elongated Man stretched his way into grittiness?

We finish DC’s mega-event that changed everything, Identity Crisis! Is the ending satisfying? Does it make sense? And why does everyone hate Captain Boomerang?

Check out our last episode, Identity Crisis Part 1, first if you haven’t!

Read along: Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales’ Identity Crisis

In this episode, Ryan struggles to defend why cynicism can be good when it’s in a story he kinda likes. Sly thinks all superheroes look the same. Darryl discovers the most relatable villain. 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!
