RECOMMENDED READING:

Red Death homages are pulled from several Crisis… issues; Dawnbreaker’s origin could be inspired by the Batman: In Darkest Night Elseworlds oneshot from 1994



BATMAN: RED DEATH
HOMAGES:

“Worlds will live, worlds will die…”; first pages of both Crisis #1 & Batman: Red Death #1. Love how the Earths are drawn in opposite directions.

 

Another homage, featuring Barry Allen, from Crisis #3. There’s that word “hope” again.

 

All of the possible Dark Knight Returns/Frank Miller homages in Batman: Red Death.

 

Batman takes Barry Allen into the Speed Force, in homage to Flash’s sacrifice in Crisis #8.
