Top 100 Summer Comics… #79

Crossovers are kind of a pet peeve of mine.

They all start great. Most, I should say. But inevitably, they gunk up the system. Writers are forced to change the flow of their stories to fit in with the event, and usually that leads to some pretty awkward writing.

But sometimes… very rarely… they make for some pretty cool stuff.

#79 – Infinity Gauntlet 3

Like this cover. It’s the comic equivalent of Bam-Bam. There’s nothing subtle about this coolness, it’s smashing you over the head. No nuanced writing – just every kickass Marvel character charging at you.

And as cool as the Infinity Gauntlet was, it led to the Infinity War. Which led to the Infinity Crusade. Gross.

    Man this cover looks so great, George Perez really knows how to draw. And look at some of the heroes; Eric Masterson Thor, X-Factor Cyclops costume, Pantheon Hulk, and Whiteskinned Vision. Look far writers have taken those characters…just impressive.

    Agreed. I found a thermal longsleeve with this cover on it at a walmart about 2 years ago. Suffice it to say, my winter wardrobe was a lot more fashionable after that.
