Apocalypse

I was doing some comic book cover browsing a couple of days ago, and I found a couple of interesting comic book covers. Both these covers had the WTC on them, with the word "apocalypse" printed underneath them.

This image was taken from Batman Chronicles #21. I don't have the exact date of publication, but it was either in 96 or 97. Here is the full cover.



This is an image taken from Daredevil #227, Febuary, 1986.



The full cover.



Of course, there was no "apocalypse", but it was an apocalypse type event. Interesting that I should find both covers on the same day.

Edit: I apologize about the confusing text next to the images, my regular image host is down and I had to use an alternate of which I am not familiar.

That's an amazing find, extra especially in close succession - have been playing a bit with the idea of time - does it really flow forward or did these twin pics travel backwards from 2001.

I hope you are well
