Issue 96: 52 - Part 3: DC's D-List Year Celebrates The Holidays
The #flyerdrive continues with our third (of four) episode on DC’s magnum opus, 52! It’s issues 27-39! And if this is your first time, make sure you listen to part one and part two first!
Sly cannot pronounce Nanda Parbat, Ryan feels Elongated Man’s pain, Phil finds space zombies more plausible than the Crime Bible, and Darryl finds something worse than Lobo. Oh, and Dennis? Merry Christmas.
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?
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.
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!
