Lookin’ to Connect: Justice League: A Midsummer’s Nightmare #1-3, Web of Spider-Man #6/Amazing Spider-Man #268 and Wonder Man #22-25

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 bcronin@comicbookresources.com with your suggestions for future installments. Don’t post suggestions in the comments section!

This edition is based entirely on an e-mail reader Tom T. sent me. I liked how he sent me exactly a diptych, a triptych and a tetrapytch. Obviously, of course, other people also sent the same suggestions, I just liked how his suggestions were exactly enough for a column.


First up, Tom T., Ethan S. and Steve S. all suggested Kevin Maguire and John Dell’s triptych for Justice League: A Midsummer’s Nightmare #1-3, the mini-series that led into Grant Morrison’s JLA…


Next, Tom T. appears to be the only one who suggested John Byrne’s covers for Web of Spider-Man #6 and Amazing Spider-Man #268…



Finally, Tom T., Charlie L. and Aaron P. all suggested Jeff Johnson and Terry Austin’s covers for Wonder Man #22-25…

Love how the Wonder Man quad picture actually contains storytelling.

That’s just a poster,and not the covers for any MU series.

I,ve sent in a suggestion involving a Tryptych poster series though…..

I tell a lie: it’s an updated version of the original MU covers. I was thrown by the Angel and human Beast in their X-Factor costumes when the original MU was released pre X-Factor while the Beast was blue and furry

I love this new feature

The rest of my comment got moderated (presumably because I spoiled an upcoming post), so I’ll just repost this part:

That Wonder Man series is really underrated– both Gerard Jones’s writing and Jeff Johnson’s art. Good stuff.

I agree, Matt. I started collecting that series because it was just starting at the same time that I was getting into comics. I didn’t know anything about the character when I stated, but I ended up collecting the entire run. That series made me a lifelong fan of Wonder Man.

love how the wonder man covers when together show Mephistoe grinning over having wonder man fighting in a crystal ball.

That’s the storyline where Mephisto eliminated Wonder Man’s marriage, right?

Oh, so he has a history of this?

Man, is there any superhero who’s had more bad costumes than Wonder Man? Poor guy.

That Wonder Man comic was the only comic I’d ever subscribed to in my life.

It does really say something about Wonder Man that his best costume was a red safari jacket and sunglasses. I don’t think he’s ever actually had a good costume.
