So yesterday’s tease was pointing to this beauty that arrived today:
The CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS box set which was my treat to myself for working hard on a project in work and getting a bonus to show for it.
And this is gorgeous!
The cover flips down to reveal 14 hardbacks – some of which I have in other formats (the COIE story itself I have in the original comics, the trade paperback, the Absolute Edition, a digital version of the 30th anniversary – and now this!) – some of which are new, especially some of the content in Behind The Crisis, the fourteenth volume.
Who knows, I might even do a full on review of this one day.
I had a bonus in my pay packet this month – my team and I have worked stupidly hard over the last six to eight months to manage the business engagement side of a project to install new software, and we all got rewarded for our efforts.
Sure, there’s stuff I could spend it on to make our new house better (like some shelving so I can get my comics out of storage) but we’ve already budgeted for things like that. This is new, unexpected, bonus money that I can play with, without wondering whether it needs to go toward something sensible.
So I didn’t buy anything sensible.
I bought something that I already own, but in a new package.
And it’s something to do with my all time favourite comic book event.
Should be delivered tomorrow – there will be photos.
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!)
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 . . .
