The Crisis on CW Earths

Shop Doc’s Designs on TeePublic

Here at the Quantum Continuum, Mrs. Multiverse and I are re-watching the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the CW Arrowverse cross-over event that originally aired in 2019. Getting the obvious out of the way… it’s nothing like the Crisis of 1985. I was fifteen when that limited series was released and felt so big. The writing and art were top-notch, being done by team of Wolfman and PΓ©rez. The Giordano inks we fine, but the coloring was horrible. Not to crap on Tony Tollin, but the coloring makes the story a hard read now. It’s very muddy and heavy handed… I attribute that to the printing method they used. This could have easily been a Deluxe format set of books, but they chose the normal route.

I digress. For what it is, the CW Crisis is epic, fun, and crazy. There are plenty of Easter Eggs and cameos to keep a nerd happy. I love a good team up tale, and one that ranges over several episodes as well as multiple series is my happy place. The older I get the less I nerd-pick over minor details that have been changed for very little reason. As a matter of fact, the only time I get irked is when characters take actions that are far outside their established parameters.

By the time this gets posted, we’ll have finished the story on Netflix. We had to look elsewhere for Batwoman, but that was easily solved. As the CW Arrowverse ends as we know it, we are rediscovering all that it had to offer. Once we finish with the closure of Oliver’s passing, we will be watching all new shows, since that is where we dropped out of watching them all. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

Eye On New Action Figures of Note

I am an old school vintage collector. Heck, my hard deck of collecting is anything from the 70s. That is a rule of practicality… we have next to no room for “things” or “stuff”. I have bent my rule a bit for really neat, smaller items, but these things make me drool. I can post pics and share, so that’ll have to do. I am OK with that.

Disclaimer: I get store credit from Entertainment Earth for every item purchased via affiliate link. Why store credit? That’s how I set up my account when I was collecting everything and had a place to house it all in. Now anything I “purchase” from EE either becomes a gift, is resold, or is one of those rare items that I attempt to make space for.

On The Scene – Presents – Super Heroes #1 Oct 1966 Warren Magazine originally scanned by Mophead Scan. If you want the latest scoop on Batman the movie, this is a magazine for you. The color cover pops, and I would have picked this magazine up, or at the very least… pestered my parents to purchase it for me. Anyhow, I preset to you a magazine that was printed approximately four years before I was born. Enjoy!

Decompressing with Toy Art

Decompressing with Toy Art

The last few years haven’t been the best, but I came back to drawing and that has helped me so much. Sometimes the simpler the better, as with my most recent pieces. Random toy lines, and made-up toys that I would like to have owned. I don’t see this run ending any time soon. Some will be repurposed into designs on my TeePublic shop. I’ve already shared a few of these pieces but some are new. These make me happy, and they really hit my collector bone too.

Superhero PSAs

Almost from the very beginning, Superheroes were looking out for our health, and social issues that affected all of us.

β€œLet’s lay it right on the line. Bigotry and racism are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today. But, unlike a team of costumed super-villains, they can’t be halted with a punch in the snoot, or a zap from a ray gun. The only way to destroy them is to expose them β€” to reveal them for the insidious evils they really are. The bigot is an unreasoning hater β€” one who hates blindly, fanatically, indiscriminately. If his hang-up is black men, he hates ALL black men. If a redhead once offended him, he hates ALL redheads. If some foreigner beat him to a job, he’s down on ALL foreigners. He hates people he’s never seen β€” people he’s never known β€” with equal intensity β€” with equal venom.

β€œNow, we’re not trying to say it’s unreasonable for one human being to bug another. But, although anyone has the right to dislike another individual, it’s totally irrational, patently insane to condemn an entire race β€” to despise an entire nation β€” to vilify an entire religion. Sooner or later, we must learn to judge each other on our own merits. Sooner or later, if man is ever to be worthy of his destiny, we must fill out hearts with tolerance. For then, and only then, will we be truly worthy of the concept that man was created in the image of God – a God who calls us ALL β€” His children.

β€œPax et Justitia, Stan.”
