There’s a brief article on Newsarama about a new Freedom Fighters series coming in December, written by Robert Venditti whose work I’ve enjoyed over the last few years on Green Lantern. And, even better, it’s set on Earth-10 / Earth-X from the Multiversity series so we get one of my favourite teams and the multiverse in one go.
Just a shame it’s a 12 issue miniseries as opposed to an ongoing, but I will take what I can get, thank you very much.
I came across this “100 Issues Ago” panel in an old Justice League of America and thought I’d tidy it up and re-purpose it. If one month = one issue, what was I reading 100 Issues Ago?
Blackest Night comes barrelling to an end with this issue, with a ton of dead characters restored to life with white rings, Nekron defeated once and for all and the whole of the DCU seemingly geared up to begin Brightest Day.
As mad, sprawling, interconnected crossovers go, Blackest Night was great fun, with the various Rainbow Corps really getting a chance to shine. Sure, it had what felt like a bajillion crossovers into other series, but Geoff Johns was still writing hopeful stories at this point; with Flashpoint and Forever Evil to come in later years, this was probably the last of Johns big stories that I really enjoyed.
Back on my old blog, I ran a series of related posts on Mondays and I’ve been wanting to do something along those lines here.
So, and I admit to being HUGELY influenced by the wonderful Super-Team Family blog which has been doing this for years (and a lot better) on an almost daily basis, I’ve mashed up a few comic covers.
Each week I randomly generate two years and two months and then compare the titles I own from both those dates, trying to find some covers that, with a little basic photoshopping, I can mash together, and then I force the results on you lovely people.
Okay, I will hold my hand up – the Super-Team Family blog influence is now in full effect.
The last mash-ups I’ve done have all taken one or more characters and inserted them into the cover of another series; it took me nine attempts to work out that Ross over at Super-Team Family is actually creating his own covers by combining the characters into something new, not an existing cover. I hope he and any of his readers that happen to see this and the following mash-ups as respectful homages.
Who would you rather see as the new Green Lantern? Hal Jordan or John Carter? Hell, why not Carol Ferris or Dejah Thoris?
. . . things might have been different.
Because that whole “Password incomplete: would you like to add rider?” panel has bugged me for years. Seriously – what computer allows you to enter a password and then says “Oooooh, so close – go on, have another go, you’re almost right!”
