Crisis #7 Homage Page Updated

Over the last couple of months I’ve found a few new versions of the cover to Crisis on Infinte Earths #7, the classic death of Supergirl, as well as a couple of better resolution scans of some of them.

One of them, I admit, is a definite stretch but I had to include it for two reasons: first, it’s one of the original Star Wars covers from Marvel in the late 70s and that’s always a good enough reason to include it. Second was where I came across it.

Myself and a group of friends manage to get together for a beer once every three or fours months these days, talk about films and books and nonsense as we enjoy a few pints. The last gathering was in a pub in my town and at some point I headed down to the toilet to do what I needed to. As I walked through the corridor to the toilets, I noticed a collection of comic book covers as posters on the wall; there was a Star Trek issue and a Doctor Who but what caught my eye was this one:

Even slightly drunk and on a night out, I thought “That’s close enough for a Crisis homage, even if it does pre-date it” and took a photo so I wouldn’t forget.

I’ve included it in the homage page along with a bunch of new/better ones.
