Eclipso: The Darkness Within (19 years later)


eclipsocoverscircleBack in 1992, a friend shared with me a new Superman #1 issue. It had some new villain, was a #1, AND he’d gotten it at a store that SPECIFICALLY SOLD *COMICS*. Such a novel thing to a kid who’d only been able to find comics at the local Waldenbooks or a spinner rack at the grocery store.

But that Superman comic was Superman: The Man of Steel Annual #1, part of the Eclipso: The Darkness Within crossover through that year’s DC titles’ annuals. Not long after, I tracked down the other Superman annuals, as well as Eclipso: The Darkness Within #2; among my earliest “back issue hunting” was Eclipso: The Darkness Within #1. This was also when I was introduced to the Direct Market, the world of comic stores.

Even though I read a handful of the Eclipso annuals, and wound up with a few others from bargain bins here and there through the years…it wasn’t until a package arrived today that I finally have the complete event.

19 years after they came out, I’ll finally be able to read the whole story.
