The best comic book covers of the week – 28 October 2019

2 min read


I loved the first issue of Tales from the Dark Multiverse, and with a new one-shot on the way that shines a light on The Death of Superman, I’m hungry for more of what is essentially DC’s Elseworlds meets a twist from the Outer Limits. Which is exactly what I’m getting soon! Here’s the pitch: It’s the saga of Infinite Crisis, a tale which was infamous for the greater hero community being an absolute dick towards Blue Beetle when he was trying to warn them that Maxwell Lord and the Checkmate organisation was up to no good.

Seen as a joke and with no help being offered, Blue Beetle infiltrates the organisation and eventually gets busted, with Lord delivering a two-for-one deal on monologues and bullets to the head. Here’s the question though: What if the Blue Beetle was the man who executed Checkmate’s leader before he could unleash an army of OMAC war machines on the metahuman community? “DC’s mega-event Infinite Crisis saw the dissolution of the Trinity, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse…but it started with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, who saw it all coming and died with secrets that could’ve saved the world,” the description for the one-shot read.

But…things happened differently in the Dark Multiverse! In the fourth Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shot, not only does Blue Beetle survive—he thrives! And after killing Maxwell Lord himself, Ted sets off a chain of events that irreversibly alters the lives of the Justice League and his best friend, Booster Gold. In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the Crisis…and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same.

James Tynion IV will handle the story on this one, with Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan on art duties. It’ll be out at the tailend of November.
