Who is Eclipso & 2 Types of Eclipses

DC Comics' Eclipso trade paperback
I recently finished enjoying a trade paperback collection of classic comics about an interesting character- a villain and hero in one called Eclipso. It's a black and white collection of his origin and exploits from 1963 to 1966. Since his transformation is triggered by an eclipse, we'll explain the two types here, too.

BOOK  SUMMARY: DC Showcase Presents: Eclipso:  One of the strangest comics villains ever stars in this volume collecting HOUSE OF SECRETS #61-80! On an expedition in the South Pacific, scientist Bruce Gordon's dark side is unleashed after being exposed to a black diamond. Transformed into the powerful Eclipso by any event resembling an eclipse, he embarked on an evil rampage as his good side attempted to reassert control.

WHAT IS A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE? A total solar eclipse can happen only at new moon, when the moon passes directly between the sun and Earth. Why aren’t there eclipses at every full and new moon?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
