Here is a little something to help you get through the weekend. It’s an advertisement for the Firestorm/Blue Devil crossover from 1986. Two of my absolute favorite characters teaming up! How cool is that?!?! I’ll be reviewing the issues themselves in the near future, but I thought I would share this ad for the crossover.
Special thanks to “Coming Super-Attractions!” blog for allowing me to reprint this advertisement from their site. Be sure to head over there and check ’em out. The site is lots of fun, but will be coming to an end in about a month. A blow to the comic book blogging community.
Interesting observation about this ad… It shows the covers for both Firestorm (drawn by Joe Brozowski) and Blue Devil (drawn by Paris Cullins). However, the break-out images of the characters are stock images by different artists. Not earth-shattering, but strange.
UPDATE: Last night, I happened upon this advertisement myself in Justice League of America #249 (April 1986). Since I just got a new scanner, I thought I would try it out. So below you’ll find the ad I scanned myself, however, I left the link to “Coming Super-Attractions” which inspired this post.
I also wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for the warm reception FIRESTORM FAN has gotten. I have received several kind e-mails and comments about the site. You people are so friggin’ wonderful!
I didn’t realize until this week how fantastic the superhero-specific blog community is. There are a number of blogs out there that are dedicated to just one character (like FIRESTORM FAN is). I was shocked at how kind and supportive the folks running these sites have been. Many of them have featured FIRESTORM FAN in one of their posts, several have posted comments here already, while others added it to their blogroll without me even asking. I feel like I’ve joined an exclusive club of really nice people!
Here are just a few of the ‘shout-outs’ FIRESTORM FAN has received.
- Aquaman Shrine – Check out the cartoon! It’s Nuclearrific!
- El Jacone’s Comic Book Bunker
- Speed Force
