DCOCD – Flashpoint

If you don’t know DCOCD, it’s the podcast in which Paul and Mike of Waiting For Doom – the world’s first, and greatest, Doom Patrol podcast – look at every DC event from Crisis to… well, who knows where it will all end. I do know that this week they’ve reached 2011’s Flashpoint shenanigans, and they asked me to join them. Eight years ago, I wasn’t overly enamoured with the series in which the DC Universe was temporarily overwritten, with a war between the Amazons and Atlanteans at its centre. And of course, it led directly to the New 52. Having re-read the five-issue central mini-series and all the spin-offs and side stories – that’s 61 issues – will I feel better disposed towards it? Or will it all go a bit Canterbury Cricket? And what will those charming, cheeky chappies from Oz reckon?

Find out by downloading DCOCD at iTunes or other podcatchers, or listen here. Comments, as ever, very welcome here, though if you fancy hearing your thoughts read out on the next episode, email DCOCDCast@gmail.com or tweet to @DCOCDCast (if you tweet, please copy me in, that’s @MartGray).

Thanks for reading. Gotta run…
