The 4 main superhero shows on the CW (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow) have been doing crossover events for the last 4 years. We have covered the last 2 crossover events on our podcast for Invasion! and Crisis on Earth X.
For 2018, they are doing a crossover event for Elseworlds but it includes Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. Legends of Tomorrow was not involved this time around.
In the podcast this week, we go over the concept of Elseworlds and were it came from in DC comics continuity. We talk about a couple of the very first comics to actually have the Elseworlds imprint: Batman – Gotham by Gastlight and Batman – Holy Terror.
After we talk about DC’s history with Elseworlds, we then talk about the crossover event and how they used this concept of alt-reality on Barry Allen and Oliver Queen.
Jon and I then go into a discussion on the show’s overall storyline and what we took away after the event ended.
If you watched the event but don’t know much about the comics, we give you some good suggestions on what comics to pick up.
Your comics pal,
