Fringe’s “Other Side” Comics to See our Side?

Early this year Geoff Johns (Green Lantern, Brightest Day) was promoted to Chief Creative Officer for DC Entertainment. Aside from writing some of the best books at DC, Johns was put in charge of finding ways to infuse the characters of the DC Universe into all faucets of entertainment including: TV, Movies, Animation and Video Games. Rather than whore their character to the highest bidder it seems that he has tried to infuse comic book culture into the mainstream.

Perhaps one of the least talked about examples of this has been character of Dr. Sheldon Cooper and his Green Lantern themed T-Shirts on the Big Bang Theory. Whether the shows has popularity amongst comic fans or not it has succeeded in making fans of the show ask about the shirts and there meaning.

Johns' latest endeavor into television was last week's Fringe season finally. On this parallel Earth the Fringe team finds subtle differences from our Earth, most notably their comic books. Fringe Writer/Director/Producer of the finally approached Johns and set everything into motion. A team at Wildstorm, a subsidiary of DC Entertainment, was tasked with the job of altering well recognized DC covers while keeping true to the original work. On DC's blog, Johns has asked comic fans if they would like to see the stories behind the covers, which may mean that the issues will see the light of day. If Frank Miller was actually hired to create Superman: The Man of Steel Returns, I know that I personally would buy it.
