DCOCD 28 - Countdown to Infinite Crisis

DCOCD is the DC Comics Events podcast where we discuss, score and rank every single DC event in order starting with 1985's Crisis on Infinite Earths up to... we're not sure yet.

Paul is joined by veteran comic podcaster Peter Rios to breakdown the sprawling 2005 event COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE CRISIS from every writer and artist working at DC at the time. Beginning with the titular shocking one shot, to the 4 mini-series (The OMAC Project, Day of Vengeance, Villains United and The Rann/Thanagar War) Paul, Peter and semi-OCD Dr Anj look at all the moving pieces that were coordinated to prime the DC Universe to explode.
