UPDATE: You can see a cache of Marvel/Lost crossovers here.
LOST is back in full force this week with the premiere of what everyone hopes won’t be a severely strike-shortened 8-episode long Season 4. Long dormant Lost blogs are firing up to hunt new Easter eggs, and one of them reveals that in addition to an ongoing online game, there’s also a big Marvel/Lost tie-in:
In a bid to create further excitement showfor Lost, ABC has announced a mash-up with Marvel Comics. You can discover elements from the show in a number of Marvel Comics titles. ABC marketing has strategically placed images and references from the show in various comic books, including Uncanny X-Men, Incredible Hercules, Thunderbolts and Wolverine Origins. It is interesting to note that some of them promote Find815.com, while others give reference to Jack and the other characters being found.
We hadn’t seen much reference to this around the net, but it’s fun stuff for Lost-philes.
As for the current season, were very glad we watched Wednesday’s “enhanced” version of the Season 3 finale because we didn’t remember ANY of it–the boat, the hatch, Locke and Walt…all that stuff. We did remember the flash forward and the death of Charlie. However, LOST has pretty much been dead to us since it went off the air last May. But now the game’s afoot and we can all play along again. Who was in that coffin anyway?
