REVNEWS: Rebirthing Pains – DC Universe Rebooting Again!

In 1985, DC Comics published the epic series CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, and ever since the repercussions have reverberated down over the years, inside and out of their published universe. Characters and worlds lived and died! A cycle of yearly mega-crossover events have became the norm. And what started as an attempt to streamline the DC Universe lead to more and more frayed bits and pieces requiring new clean-ups that caused even more issues.

And now, after the somewhat unsuccessful New 52, DC is pusing the cosmic reset button once more! This time, however, feels different. This new mega-event, titled REBIRTH, is under the watchful hand of legendary writer Geoff Johns, who’s no stranger to breathing new life and excitement into characters that need a return to greatness.

To discuss the events that lead to this change, the story itself, and the repercusions of this new Universe Reset, RevNews host Gary Mitchel put out the call to Green Lantern expert Sean, The Rad Ranger, and the world’s foremost Flash Fan Shaun Rosado! Listen as they take a (not-so) brief look at DC’s previous major events; what makes event stories work, & what doesn’t; how modern heroes can be seen as modern gods; REBIRTH as business & writing decision; Batman’s belt, Superman’s lack of red shorts & overall costume design theory; DC’s ability to do legacy; what each of the main DC characters represent to readers; the big moment that brought all the feels; the meta side of the reveal of the big bad; a look at the Superman, Batman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern & Wonder Woman Rebirth issues; Shaun’s Bette Midler reference; how everyone gets to be a Batman; Rad Ranger’s fondness for 90’s costumes; Shaun’s message to DC about artists; and the upcoming comics they can’t miss.

The RevNews coverage of all things Captain America: Civil War concludes! We came, we saw, we laughed and we cried!

RevNews – Civil War: The Comic – Infinite Crisis in Infinite Politics!

The RevNews coverage of all things Captain America: Civil War continues! In this new episode, host Gary Mitchel calls in the world’s foremost Flash fan and comics expert Shaun Rosado to discuss the epic comics event, and all its related series, which has inspired the movie!

Tune in as they explain why this movie may be the closest the MCU will come to the actual comics; a bit of history of The Avengers in comics along with everything going on in comics & the real world that influenced this epic event; the differences in how MARVEL handles a recalibration vs how DC does it; what started the Civil war & the two sides’ arguments; what the series did to Tony Stark as a character & how Movie Tony and Comics Tony differ; how all the character moments seem to be in the side-books and the BIG moments are in the main book; which side Gary and Shaun are on; where Shaun thinks all the villains were while the heroes fought; the final fight that ended the war, the denouement, the lingering aftermath & how it affected the MAREL Comics Universe for the next few years; and what they consider to be essential (and NON-essential) reading for the event.
