Following the news that there was going to be a tie-in comic to the CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover with a mocked-up cover by Jerry Ordway, the genuine cover of the first issue has been released, and it’s no real surprise that they’re revisiting possibly the most iconic cover DC has every produced – CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #7, featuring the death of Supergirl.
From the Newsarama article:
The book features a 24-page main story co-written by comics icon and Crisis comic co-creator Marv Wolfman and CW producer Marc Guggenheim, who serves as showrunner and executive producer of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, with art provided by Tom Derenick (pencils), Trevor Scott (inks), John Kalisz (colors) and Wes Abbott (letters). Wolfman and Guggenheim also contribute an eight-page back-up story with pencils by fan-favorite Superman and Titans artist Tom Grummett, inks by Danny Miki, colors by Chris Sotomayor and letters by Wes Abbott. The debut issue also features a full reprint of the first issue of Wolfman and Perez’ CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #1 as well as an excerpt from issue #7 of the landmark maxiseries.
The second issue is due to land in January.
