Bit of a slow week this week so have caught up with a couple of Eclipso: The Darkness Within items that I’ve found over the last couple of months.
You can find a couple of ads on the Eclipso home page as well as this one-page recap of the crossovers events as told by Green Lantern extraordinaire, G’nort:
Some might say that would have made for a better crossover event . . .
As I was annotating both issues of the Eclipso: The Darkness Within series, I began to get a sense that the male characters in the story were getting a lot more “screen time” and dialogue than their female counterparts. Over the course of a weekend, I went through the issues and started examining the issues in more detail and ended up writing a small essay.
You can read the results here.
Finally done – all the notes are sorted, all the images are scanned.
Up next is the synopsis of the Eclipso series that followed The Darkness Within and then some notes on the relationship between that series and The Spectre.
All the text has been done for the final issue of Eclipso: The Darkness Within. I just need to scan a few images and, where necessary, number and label them and then I can get the main pages published.
Once that’s done, I can turn to the Eclipso series that followed the event books – while I won’t be doing a detailed issue by issue look at the series, I plan to give an overview of the story arcs.
Added a couple of images to the Death of Supergirl homage page which you can find here. One of them’s a homage, the other’s a house ad but thought I’d include that for the sake of completion.
Meanwhile, back to the grindstone with the annotations for Eclipso: The Darkness Within #2.
That’s Starman telling me to pull my finger out and finish these damn annotations so I can do what the internet really wants and get on with the Bloodlines annotations before the new mini-series comes out in a couple of months.
Finished writing up the annuals for Eclipso: The Darkness Within so will now be turning my attention to the detailed annotations for #2 of the bookends.
Thing is, in a couple of days, me and Mrs Earth-Prime are off to Sweden for a few days of tramping through the snow and riding with huskies so it might be next week before the notes are finished.
