Chroma City

"Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid.... He is the hero, he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world, and a good enough man for any world."

-Raymond Chandler

Chroma City is my mostly-reconstructionist comics page. It is named in homage to Kurt Busiek's Astro City, which I cannot recommend too highly.

The Annotated Crisis on Infinite Earths

...So let me start with the most deconstructionist comic of all time.

A guide to the many universes of DC Comics.

Crisis Crossovers

Crisis-Relevant Texts

Morrison's Animal Man and its Crisis-Relevance

The Annotated Flex Mentallo

Kingdom Come Annotations

It was a bear of a job, but Jess Nevins did it.

Who's Who: Handbook of the Amalgam Universe

(Approx. 150KB file.) What do you get if you cross Batman and Wolverine? A splitting headache, I've found....
Jess did annos for the first wave of these, too. Does that guy ever sleep?

The FAQ of the Leader

The skinny and dirt on the Hulk's greatest enemy.
