Crisis On Infinite Earths News

As we learned last year, this year’s CW TV series crossover event will be Crisis on Infinite Earths and Newsarama reports that it will involve Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and the newly announced Batwoman.

With Arrow due to finish with this latest series, is Ollie going to take the place of the Flash in the comics and sacrifice himself to save the multiverse?

In other news, DC Comics’ solicitations were released recently and contained this little gem:

CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS 35TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION HC
written by MARV WOLFMAN
art by GEORGE PEREZ, DICK GIORDANO, JERRY ORDWAY and others
cover by GEORGE PEREZ and ALEX ROSS
The 12-issue epic is collected in a new anniversary edition! The mysterious Anti-Monitor has begun a crusade to end all existence. As alternate Earths are destroyed, the Monitor quickly assembles a team of heroes from across time and space to stop the menace!

Now I already own the original twelve issues, the trade paperback, the Absolute Edition and the digital version.

Do I need a Deluxe Edition?

Do I want a Deluxe Edition . . . ?

Mash-Up #84

Three times a week I randomly generate two dates, hunt down covers from those dates and then mash them together and force the results on you lovely people, while giving a hat-tip to the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis.

Anyone else want to see a dystopian future where Captain Carrot becomes Monarch?

100 Issues Ago January 2011

I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?


I featured DC UNIVERSE: LEGACIES in a 100 Issues Ago post a couple of months back – it was a good series, basically running through some of the big events of DC’s history in order, showing them from the point of view of a Metropolis policeman and his family. This issue focused on the fall of Batman when Bane broke his back, as well as the death of Superman who was killed by Doomsday.

This series is bittersweet in hindsight as it finishes with #10 and, just a couple of months later, everything it described is wiped away with the arrival of the New 52.
