Chris and Reggie’s Cosmic Treadmill

Weird Comics History, Episode 22: The DC Comics Multiverse (pre-Crisis)

August 8, 2017

To coincide with the Cosmic Treadmill's (ongoing) 50th Podiversary Crisis on Infinite Earths extravaganza, Reggie (@reggiereggie) and Chris (@acecomics) have decided to dive a bit deeper and discuss the DC Comics (pre-Crisis) Multiverse... like, all of it!  They will discuss the "main Earths" most fans already know about, while also covering the nearly one-hundred that were added after the fact in Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Absolute Edition (2005).

Don't worry about commiting the name of that book to memory, you're likely to hear it a time or two during the show!

Prepare to learn about the skatey-eight hundred times Superman and Lois Lane got married and had children... marvel at the thought of Superman and Batman acting as villains while Lex Luthor plays the hero.  Just Imagine a world where all coffee is decafinated and Superboy wears red instead of blue... okay, we made that last one up.  Listen as we spoil more formerly "imaginary stories" than you can shake a chunk of Red-K at... and much, much more!


Did we leave any of the "infinite Earths" out?  Are there any you'd like for us to expand upon?  Please reach out!  

Any listener-theories?  We'd love to hear'em!
