THE FINAL NIGHT
next major appearance in a calendar was in 1996, when DC published
NIGHT series, in which the heroes and citizens of
Earth faced impending demise as the Sun-Eater, which first appeared
in a Legion story, threatened to extinguish their Sun, therefore
creating the planets final night.
As a prelude to the series, DC Comics released
a Final Night calendar
an advent calendar of sorts which
allowed retailers to reveal scenes from the series weekly in the
countdown to the first issue. An exclusive story previewing the
crisis was featured in the calendar, which showed Superman and members
of the Legion discussing the menace of the Sun-Eater.
