Comic Review: Infinite Crisis
The heroes of the DC Universe faces one of their greatest challenges. This is also a sequel to the 1980’s series. A story written by Geoff Johns (JSA, Avengers) and drawn by a team consisting of George Perez (Avengers, Teen Titans), Phil Jimenez (Wonder Woman, Invisibles), Jerry Ordway (Superman), and Ivan Reis (Green Lantern)
Following the events of Identity Crisis, Batman has inadvertently released an army of OMAC’s on the world. Also revealed in this story line is that there were survivors from the original “crisis”, Crisis on Infinite Earths. These survivors, which included Alexander Luthor and Superboy Prime, were hiding in a cave. Now they feel it is time for them to reveal to the world of their existence. If the original crisis was any indication, you can expect a pretty rough road ahead for the heroes of the DC Universe.
The story was well written and kept you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire event. Geoff John worked his magic quite well like he did for the revival of the JSA series. As well, George Perez has not lost his touch as the king of jamming as many characters into a panel as possible.
Must read tie-ins into this story are Days of Vengeance, OMAC Project, Villains United, and Rann Thanagar War as well as Superman: Sacrifice which ties into OMAC Project. This story leads you into the 52 week series “52” and continues on to Countdown to Final Crisis and Final Crisis.
