Crossover Cover: Revenant Season


Blade, Frank Drake, and Hannibal King, now occult investigators, battle Hydra’s Department of Occult Armaments. In D.O.A.’s headquarters, an announcement is made over the P.A.: “Attention religious artifacts division–observe safety guidelines when opening Arks of the Covenant! Don’t look into the light–” Blade, Drake, and King first appeared in the Marvel series Tomb of Dracula. The reference to the Ark of the Covenant and not looking into the light is an allusion to Raiders of the Lost Ark. Given its many appearances in the CU, the Ark, like the Maltese Falcon, seems to change hands often.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!

  1. Hey PB210, aka John McDonagh, I'm not approving your comment, so stop trying to post it. Partly because Win banned you from the Wold Newton Family Yahoo group back when Yahoo Groups was a thing for being a nutcase, partly because in this context, yes, it is probably a RAIDERS reference, and partly because as I've said before, discussion of real-world religion and politics is strictly off-limit on this blog.
