Flashpoint wasn’t just any old Elseworld story, it is the mini-series from 2011 that reset the whole DC line to make room for the New 52. Time has been altered and of course that means the world isn’t right anymore and it is up The Flash to figure out who caused this dramatic change. Is the new animated film adaption Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox “universe changing”? Listen in to find out.
On this podcast we review DC Comics’ latest animated feature: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Is it better than the comic? Then we talk Batman/Superman and Avengers: Age of Ultron movie news from SDCC. Listen in!
What are you more excited to see: Batman vs. Superman or Avengers: Age of Ultron? Head over to our podcast Facebook page and let us know.
Crossover events have become ubiquitous fare from Marvel and DC, with smaller publishers recently jumping on the bandwagon. Lots of us complain about them, and yet, buying ironically is still buying. Tim is joined by John Roberson to discuss why the past year’s main events, Fear Itself and Flashpoint, were particularly unsatisfying, what makes a (relatively) good event series, and why we read these books in spite of “event fatigue”.
125 episodes of Comic Timing! Holy crap! To celebrate, Brent and Ian say farewell to the old DC Universe with a review of Flashpoint #5 and say hello to the new one with Justice League #1! We are also joined by longtime listener Donovan Morgan Grant for the Justice League conversation. Plus, there is plenty of conversation and clarification on Brent’s Editorial on why he feels some comic shops might not be using the DC Relaunch to its fullest potential.
