It's time for another Crisis...on Earth-Blog!
This time, the team-up wasn't my idea, but that of Shag Matthews, he of the FirestormFan blog. Today he is writing about the mind-bogglingly detailed wraparound cover to the Crisis on Infinite Earths hardcover, by George Perez and Alex Ross:
Of course, with the approximately ten million characters depicted here, there's a good shot that any DC character you could think of is represented on here somewhere.
Shag thought it'd be fun for each of us (Speedforce, My Greatest Adventure, Idol-Head of Diabolu, Dispatches From The Arrowcave, Being Carter Hall, Plastic Man Platitudes, Mail It To Team-Up, Justice League Detroit, and my own Aquaman Shrine) to all pick the part(s) of the cover/poster that interest us the most and post about them on the same day. So here's where we can find The Phantom Stranger:
...probably the only time we'll ever see The Phantom Stranger, Doll Man, The White Witch, and the Forever People's Big Bear all in the same shot.
I initially wasn't going to include I Am The Phantom Stranger in this blog crossover, since this Crisis hardcover is out of the strict publishing order we've been following here on the blog.
But then I realized, what's something like Time to someone like The Phantom Stranger? And in the end, I wanted the Stranger be included in Shag's own Crisis-like crossover event.
Thanks to Shag Matthews for including me in this multi-blog team-up!
