Write Ups: COSMIC ODYSSEY!

Check out the new and improved Armageddon 2001 section on the Hawk and Dove write up. In the meantime, here's another classic comics event...


Back before every comic published was an integral pert of some crisis or crossover, such comic events were rare and special. One of the absolute best was Cosmic Odyssey, featuring Jim Starlin on words and the incomparable Mike Mignola on pictures.
