Fringe Season Finale DC Alternate - Death of Batman

Fringe Season Finale DC Alternate - Death of Batman

When I was watching the season finale of Fringe, I was screaming at the TV and then I blathered in my review, asking “did you catch the DC comic prints on Peter’s wall?,” in reference to some framed cover prints I saw in the background of one scene.  It was completely cool because they were variations on actual prints in existence… or Fringe prints, if I dare be so bold to call them such.

Now I know what they were for fact!  The prints hanging on the wall were teasers  of alternate DC Comics story lines from the other side in Fox’s Fringe TV series!

  • RED LANTERN/RED ARROW
  • SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL RETURNS
  • CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS #7,
  • THE DEATH OF BATMAN.

They were the brain child of Geoff Johns & Hank Kanalz who, with the director of the Fringe season finale, came up with some cool covers for the alternate universe in Fringe.  As Geoff Johns says: “A month or so ago, I was fortunate enough to take on the job of Chief Creative Officer. That meant I was charged with bringing out characters out of the comic book pages and into the vast world of television, film, animation and video games that is DC Entertainment.

The interesting part of it is that now that the covers have been created, they’re teasing us with the premise of possible stories behind these covers.

Check out the covers below, they are absolutely awesome alternatives!
