New Crisis #7 Homages

Alejandro got in touch via that Contact Me page at the top to send me a new CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #7 Death of Supergirl cover homage – “new” in the sense that I didn’t have it; the cover actually comes from 1994.

As I already had a few extras waiting to be uploaded, I thought I’d get off my lazy arse and put them on the Homages Page, so thanks, Alejandro! Here’s the cover he sent over:

MARS #1 from 1984

New Tales From The Dark Multiverse One Shots

I think I’ve made it clear I’m not a massive fan of the whole DARK NIGHTS: METAL thing that’s somehow still going on – it promised so much, to be a fun and bombastic run through the DCU and just turned into a mess of mad, half-baked ideas thrown into something that has just dragged on and on and on . . .

That said, there have been a few of these TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE one-shots and I’ve picked up the ones looking at INFINITE CRISIS and BLACKEST NIGHT and they weren’t bad; separated from the crossover/uber-event nonsense, they were sort of Elseworld looks at big events and, if you haven’t guessed by the picture above, DC are now going to look at another couple: WAR OF THE GODS and the granddaddy of them all, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS.

Yeah, I’ll be picking those up.

Holy Diver, Batman!

No, this has nothing to do with Batman, but everything to do with Holy Diver, the classic 1983 album by the late, great Ronnie James Dio and which is being turned into a graphic novel out next year!

As Mrs Earth-Prime will attest, I have been a fan of Dio and the man’s ridiculous, fabulous lyrics for years and to see the first album by his own band adapted is (hopefully) going to be a dream come true.

Hurry up June 2021!
