Crossover Cover: Grand Guignol: Septieme Partie: A Villain’s Tale II


Hamilton Drew, a Sherlock Holmes-like occult detective, belonged to the Groves Club, which possessed a copy of Natty Bumppo’s diary. This reference is somewhat surprising, since James Fenimore Cooper portrayed Bumppo as illiterate. Although the Jack Knight version of Starman has a CU counterpart, as do the Elongated Man and the second Phantom Lady (Dee Tyler), who also appear, the “Grand Guignol” storyline has too many appearances by other DC heroes (including a flashback to one of the Justice Society of America’s original cases) to fit comfortably into the CU, so this must be an AU.

This crossover is one of over a thousand covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, coming this summer from Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
