Up Down

Here’s one from the dusty longboxes. I’m sure all of you, even new fans, are aware of the pivotal Crisis on Infinite Earths. Due to the relatively recent trade releases, you may have also read the excellent Justice League International volumes.

In between that ongoing series (and during the Post-Crisis revamps of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman, along with the rest of the DCU) the miniseries/event Legends helped bridge the multiverse into the new ongoing status quo. Staring Darkseid and a bevy of DCU heroes, the event set the foundations for a world with a JLI.

The 6 issue mini is available in a trade paperback, but you’ll have to follow in floppies to get all the crossovers. Luckily, Wikipedia has this list (along with some more tasty info!), apparently released by DC Comics at the time of the event:

Chapter 1 Cross-over: Batman #401 (November 1986): “A Bird in the Hand…”

Chapter 16 Cross-over: Warlord vol. 1, #115 (March 1987): “The Citadel of Fear”
Chapter 17 Cross-over: Superman vol. 2, #3 (March 1987): “Legends From the Darkside”
Chapter 18 Cross-over: Adventures of Superman #426 (March 1987): “From the Dregs”
Chapter 19 Cross-over: Action Comics #586 (March 1987): “The Champion!”
Legends #5 (March 1987): “Let Slip the Dogs of War”
Chapter 20 Spin-off: Cosmic Boy #4 (March 1987): “Time Without End”
Chapter 21 Cross-over: Justice League of America #261 (April 1987): “The End of the Justice League of America: Last Stand”
Legends #6 (April 1987): “Finale!”
Chapter 22 Spin-off: Secret Origins vol. 2, #14 (May 1987): “The Secret Origin of the Suicide Squad”

It’s a nice little stack – perhaps for a long Saturday in a comfy chair. I’m not sure if it’s really the epic of the century (especially coming right after CoIE!) but it’s a bit of history and a fun read.

    As you can see all the labels like even the cans in the back, allowing
    great flexibility for placement. A survey recently published inBusinessweekprovides a pretty harsh breakdown of the at-home workday among
    ethanol zane miller youtube telecommuting employees, but pays no attention whatsoever
    to those who are interested in purchasing a house.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my
    authorization. Do you know any solutions to help
    prevent content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.
