CW Supergirl Poster Shows What Crisis Cover Would Look Like Void of All Emotion

CW's hit Supergirl has released a promotional poster for tonight's episode, paying homage to the classic cover of Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, showing a crying Superman holding a dead Supergirl in his arms. However, in an artistic twist, the producers decided to remove all emotion from the image and depict the scene as flatly as possible. It's a haunting metaphor for the lack of feeling in modern comic books, probably. It even highlights the ridiculous price inflation that afflicted the comic industry without a related increase in quality, and in fact alongside a decrease in entertainment hours. Hopefully, the gimmick ends here, and the show doesn't attempt the same strategy as the poster of removing all emotion; after all, we already have one Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
