Back in 2007 I obviously had way too much time on my hands as I decided to annotate the then-current DC Comics series Infinite Crisis. I’d been a fan of DC since a teenager and had always enjoyed annotations and behind the scenes stuff, the stories behind stories which is why one of my favourite sites on the internet way back in the late 90’s was Jonathan Woodward’s page which annotated Crisis on Infinite Earths.
At around the same time, Google launched their Page Creator tool to easily create websites. I created a site using Woodward’s page as my inspiration and set about annotating Infinite Crisis, borrowing some of his conventions and layouts.
That was enough fun for me that I later did the same thing with both Final Crisis and then Blackest Night. After those, I looked at my comic collection and thought about the previous events that DC had done in years past – everything from Armageddon 2001 to Zero Hour.
And then I thought about doing my own annotations to Crisis on Infinite Earths and the next thing you know, I had another site featuring older series.
I’d been meaning to review and update those sites over the last year or two but instead have decided to bring them all here into a new, single place and then add to them. At the same time, I plan to revive my blog (from which this site gets its name) here as well so I’ll be back to babbling about comics again, not just the annotations.
If you find something that’s incorrect in the annotations, drop me an email at jigsawmen AT gmail DOT com
Hope you enjoy the site.
