Crossover Cover: Infestation 2: 30 Days of Night

A group of vampires battle the Old Ones in the Arctic. Miskatonic University is mentioned. The vampires are from the comic book 30 Days of Night. This story is part of a multiversal crossover that features the Old Ones waking up and attacking different worlds, so therefore it doesn’t bring in any of the other continuities featured, though the DangerGirl cameo in the final issue probably takes place in the CU.

  1. They might not share the same continuity, but do these crossover events confirm that they're all part of a shared multiverse?

    1. The comic book Grimjack and it's back Munden's Bar which take place at a nexus of the multiverse can be used to establish a variety of properties as part of the same multiverse. Aside from links to CU characters (the Shadow appears a lot in the background), it links to various comics by the same publisher, First: Nexus, Dreadstar, American Flagg. There are also cameos and references to other sci-fi comics: Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Girl Genius.

      I'm pretty sure Sean is just going to include a spot in the back for the First Comics multiverse the way Win did for the Marvel and DC universe, but you could do a book on the references in the series.

      I tend to think if something is referenced in Kim Newman's Anno Dracula series it means it is in the same multiverse as the CU though not necessarily the CU. The mention of The Confessor from Astro City, IMO, brings in that comic.
