ASK CHRIS #208: WORLDS WILL LIVE, WORLDS WILL DIE, AND ‘CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS’ IS BASICALLY A MESS
By Chris Sims
Q: I was reading your column about New Teen Titans where you said Crisis on Infinite Earths was a mess, but a topic for another time. Care to explain now? — @jeremyliveshere
A: The one thing you can’t say about Crisis on Infinite Earths is that it didn’t deliver on its promise. In a time when “event” comics were still in their infancy, Crisis came out of the gate promising to be the biggest thing that had ever or would ever hit comics, and looking back on it from almost thirty years later, it’s hard not to admit that even with a comic rolling out every six months like clockwork that promises to change everything forever, it’s still the one that actually did it. Worlds did live, worlds did die, and nothing actually was the same again.
It just also happens to be a story that’s a complete friggin’ mess.

Q
What's that thing flapping around behind you in 'Here's The Thing' ? Is it an unusually long sketch?
A

Yeah, it’s one of my pal Sage Coffey’s PUN-ISHER strips, which are all about Frank Castle killing people with wordplay. This one’s basically a motivational poster, since it’s Frank hanging two people off a cliff and telling them to “HANG in there!”

I bought it from her at HeroesCon, but it’s 18x20, so I don’t have a frame for it yet. There’s a bit of extra space at the top that I can cut off if need be, so I just tacked it up on my bulletin board.
