Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
This is the latest installment of a feature where I spotlight interconnecting covers. I will feature three selections each installment, with my current plan being to feature one diptych, one triptych and one tetraptych (or larger). Here is an archive of all of the covers listed so far. I am sure you have suggestions for future editions, so feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com with your suggestions for future installments. Don’t post suggestions in the comments section!
First, based on a suggestion from reader Matthew T., Dan Jurgens and Ron Randall’s covers for Justice League Spectacular #1a and 1b (the introduction of the new lineups for Justice League America and Justice League Europe following the conclusion of Keith Giffen’s run on the titles)….
Next, based on a suggestion from Phillip A., here’s Walter Simonson’s triptych for X-Factor #24-26, the Fall of Mutants crossover issues introducing Warren Worthington as Death (later Archangel)…
Finally, based on suggestions from the aforementioned Matthew T., Andy S., Charlie L. and James E. (plus some folks who didn’t make suggestions via e-mail so they don’t count), we have Frank Miller’s EIGHT-PART series for the first month of Valiant’s Unity crossover (the individual issues are as follows: Shadowman #4, Solar, Man of the Atom #12, Magnus, Robot Fighter #15, Harbinger #8, Archer & Armstrong #1, Eternal Warrior #1, X-O
Manowar #7 and Rai #6)….
