This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is Flashpoint, by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert. Released in 2011, Flashpoint is the event that shepherded the post-Crisis DC universe into that sweet goodnight, and launched the New-52.

It features Barry Allen—The Flash—who suddenly awakens to find himself in an altered reality where the world teeters on the precipice of destruction as Aquaman and Wonder Woman lead their respective nations in battle against one another. Batman has been replaced by his father, Thomas Wayne, while Superman seems not to exist at all and Cyborg is the premiere superhero of the United States.

Barry teams up with Batman to discover why reality has changed, and save the world long enough for him to set it back the way it was meant to be.

In our recommendation section, our hosts nominated Liberty Meadows, Creature Tech, Aetheric Mechanics, The Nao of Brown, and Genius for discussion on the next episode, and our selected title is Creature Tech.

This week on View from the Gutters our topic work is our 3-part 50th Episode Special! In part 3 we discuss Infinite Crisis, written by Geoff Johns with art by Phil Jimenez, Jerry Ordway, George Perez, Iven Reis, and Andy Lanning. Released almost exactly 20 years after the first Crisis, Infinite Crisis is the event that bought the multiverse back to DC.

Infinite Crisis is both a direct sequel and homage to Crisis on Infinite Earths. It sees the Superman of Earth-2, Superboy of Earth-Prime, and Alexander Luthor of Earth-3 returning from the pocket dimension they traveled to at the end of the first crisis in order to correct their perceived mistakes in creating the current DC Universe. In the process they cause a massive war between heroes and villains, literally break magic, shatter the Justice League, and threaten to destroy the universe.

It is the capstone of two decades of DC continuity, and with this book our journey from Crisis to Crisis is at an end. We hope that you enjoyed our 50th episode. We’ll be back next week returning to our usual format, discussing the book we picked in episode 49, The Manhatten Projects.

Our hosts for this episode were Andrew Chard, Joe Preti, Tobiah Panshin, and Cade Reynolds.
