Identity Crisis (Red Skies IV)

1 min read

Host Anthony Desiato and guest Bernie Gerstmayr (Aw Yeah Comics) dig into “Identity Crisis,” the controversial 2004 miniseries by novelist Brad Meltzer and artist Rags Morales that shined a new light on the Justice League’s Bronze Age history and set DC on a path toward “Infinite Crisis.” They also discuss the 5-part JLA follow-up “Crisis of Conscience” by Geoff Johns, Allan Heinberg, and Chris Batista. 

This is Chapter IV of “Red Skies,” a 13-part podcast epic mining DC Comics’ Crisis-level, status quo-altering events.

Digging for Kryptonite is a Flat Squirrel Production. Key art by Gregg Schigiel and theme music by Basic Printer.
