DC Comics Alternate Comic Covers In FRINGE Finale or "Somewhere, Over The Rainbow"

In last week's season finale of FRINGE (one of my favorite shows on right now), there was an easter egg for the eagle-eyed fans out there. In one scene set on the parallel world that has become the 'big bad' of the sci-fi series, we could briefly see framed comic covers on the wall of an apartment. Covers that suggested Superman died during the original "Crisis on Infinite Earths" and Jonah Hex joined the 'bwa-ha-ha' version of the Justice League. I've always enjoyed it when sci-fi series use the 'alternate world' concept, especially when we get cool treats like this.

Click on the image below to see a comparison between the 'alternate' covers and the originals. It's pretty sweet.
