The dynamic duo of Robbie Landis and Ben Morse are back once again for another episode of the Other Identity. The Other Identity is a podcast dedicated to exploring the culture birthed by comic books. From the pages themselves to the silver screen, superheroes invade every part of our lives. This week they walk you though Comic Crossovers 101.

This week on the Other Identity it’s all about comic crossovers and why they are simultaneously the best thing about comics and the worst. Ben takes us through  some of the basics of what crossovers are and what new readers can expect from them. Both Ben and Robbie talk about some of the recent materials they’ve been reading including: Crisis on Infinite Earths, Civil War and War of the Realms.

Robbie explains to Ben the cons of comic crossovers, but admits that sometimes it leads to better stories. Between the two of them they provide some recommendations on where to start if you’re new to crossovers. Plus, Ben has a list of this own for the veteran comic fan who isn’t afraid to jump in head first.
