Infinite Annotations!

As long time readers know, my comic boxes are slowly making their way back from storage so it’ll be some time before I can make a start on annotating DAY OF JUDGMENT.

In the meantime, though, I thought I’d flex my long dormant annotation muscles by taking a stroll through the just concluded INFINITE FRONTIER which, while not a big crossover summer event, had enough multiversal connections (and was just so enjoyable after the interminable DARK NIGHTS nonsense) that I thought it warranted the same attention.

Work’s begun so hopefully finish in a couple of weeks or so.

Annotations Update

Remember when I used to annotate DC stories from years ago? Yeah, me too.

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything along those lines and the reason, as long time readers will know, was due to a combination of the pandemic lockdown and Mrs Earth-Prime and I moving house at the end of last year. All of my comics were the first thing to go into storage and they’re still there but (and this is where the update comes in) they’re now one step closer to being pulled out of there.

And why? Because Mrs Earth-Prime and I spent a good few hours yesterday putting together some custom made shelving units to house the boxes.

I worked out what I needed, had a local builders’ merchants cut the wood to size and then, ably assisted by my good lady wife, put everything together. Here’s the halfway done stage:

(please ignore the crap on my desk in the foreground)

And here they are finished:

There’s fifteen compartments, each big enough to hold two comic boxes – and my CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS box set as you can see – and there’s a second, 5×1 unit that we built a week or two back as a proof of concept elsewhere in the room, which gives me room for 38 boxes (saving one compartment for the COIE box set)

As I currently have 32 boxes (plus another couple with the comics I’ve bought since the house move) that should give me enough room for everything . . . except the graphic novels which will be taking up five Ikea bookcases that are being delivered in four weeks’ time.

So with a bit of luck, my comics will be back and out of storage by the end of September, or thereabouts.

Eighteen months without them . . . it’s been tough, people, but it’s nearly over.

With a bit of luck, annotations will start up again end of this year/beginning of next.

Summary of The CW’s CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS Adaptation Complete!

I know, I know, this is ridiculously late – real life and work and Covid and trying to move house (which still hasn’t happened, by the way) all got in the way . . . and my own prevarication and all sorts of other things delayed me sitting down, re-watching the shows and typing up some notes for so, so long.

But now . . .

It’s done. Five pages of summary on the episodes of Supergirl, Batwoman, Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow are all typed up with screen shots as well.

You can find the host page here with links to the individual pages.

Enjoy, people! (Finally!)

CW’s Crisis On Infinite Earths Summary Coming Soon

No, honest, it is, okay? I know I said a couple of weeks ago that I’d have this done in a few days but it’s been crazy busy even during the lockdown and I hadn’t figured on having to watch the episodes and type up what’s happening at the same time – I keep getting distracted because my head is shouting at me “That’s CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS! On TV! Oh my god!!”

But look, the notes are underway and I’ll get them done as soon as I can. It’s not like America didn’t watch this whole thing something like six months ago, anyway . . .
