And in the middle of it all, a critical moment has divided Earth's three greatest heroes: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. It's the DCU's darkest day, and long-lost heroes from the past have returned to make things right in the any cost. Heroes will live, heroes will die, and the DCU will never be the same again!

The DC Universe faced its darkest days in 2005. This is the complete story of how the heroes fought and won.

Twenty years after their seminal mini-series Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC Comics decided to commemorate the anniversary with a year-long storyline, culminating in the mini-series titled Infinite Crisis. In a bold move, the company tried its hand at weaving an foreboding atmosphere through their entire publishing line. This would slowly develop the event that occurs within this massive tome. Four mini-series spotlighting different aspects of the DC Universe (the espionage community, super-villains, alien worlds, and magic users) came out weekly over the course of six months, literally counting down to the crisis at hand.

Far from featuring just the ultimate series itself, the Infinite Crisis Omnibus includes all of the following (and in order):
Countdown to Infinite Crisis
OMAC Project #1-3

Sacrifice (Superman #219, Action Comics #829, Adventures of Superman #642, Wonder Woman #219)
OMAC Project #4-6
Villains United #1-6

Lightning Strikes Twice (Action Comics #826, Adventures of Superman #639, Superman #216) 
Day of Vengeance #1-6
Rann-Thanagar War #1-6

Crisis of Conscience (JLA #115-119)
Infinite Crisis #1-3
Day of Vengeance Infinite Crisis Special
Infinite Crisis Secret Files 2006
Infinite Crisis #4
Rann-Thanagar War Infinite Crisis Special
Infinite Crisis #5-6
OMAC Project Infinite Crisis Special
Villains United Infinite Crisis Special
Infinite Crisis #7

At the time, these series had me running to my comic shop to get the latest installment — the first time I had been this excited for my weekly fix since the very early 1990s. Theories abounded month after month as to the villains behind all the twists and turns. Heroes were compromised, both physically and morally, and it seemed as if everything we had known about these pantheon of gods was being turned upside down. Today, to have this insanely huge (over 1400 pages) story in a single volume on my shelf almost makes me giddy all over again. The binding, although a mix of glue and sewn, is the best DC has produced yet, and I’m told it compares favorably with the well-praised sewn Marvel Omnibus binding. There is very little to no loss in the gutters throughout and the paper stock is slick, bright and appropriately thick.  The price point at $150 retail is admittedly pretty steep, but with current single issues going for $3-4 each these days, it’s actually quite the steal.

As a look back on the previous (now revised) DC Universe, the Infinite Crisis Omnibus can’t be beat. This is as complete a story and look at a critical year of publishing for DC Comics as you will ever get — at least until November’s release of the 52 Omnibus, the weekly follow-up to these tales. As a narrative in itself, the Infinite Crisis Omnibus tells a compelling tale of hero versus villain, hero versus hero (a theme clearly popular these days), and hero versus the unknown. The latter of these is perhaps what gave these comics such a punch, one that holds up brilliantly to this day.



This book is amazing and also contains far more material than is listed in the description.

The page count is actually over 1400, and the book contains not only everything listed in the description, but another twelve or thirteen issues more (including the five issue Crisis of Conscience JLA story, all four issues of the sacrifice storyline (not just the one listed) and a four issue Superman/Shazam story arc).

This is by far the most comprehensive way to read Infinite Crisis. I was a fan of the series and thought I had followed it pretty closely, but this omnibus contains 19 issues I've never read before. I applaud DC for putting out such a complete book, and I also really like the way the issues in the book have been placed in the best possible reading order as well.

I think this is probably the largest omnibus either Marvel or DC has released to date, and it's very well put together with a nice, sturdy binding that still opens well and makes for easy reading.

As to the story itself--this book covers probably my favorite period in DC history (and touches on pretty much every aspect of the DC universe of that time). The stories contained are fast, intense, exciting, well written, populated with interesting characters, and tie together into one massive epic. This is probably the period when the DC universe felt the most connected, and all the stories feel important. During the period this book covers, amost all of the DC line felt like it was building toward something big, and almost every storyline felt like it mattered as part of something bigger.

The individual miniseries in this book are all very entertaining, and Infinite Crisis itself (which doesn't even start until page 950) ties them all together and pays them off well.

The writing is consistently good, the art is very well done throughout (enhanced by very nice coloring), and the story couldn't be more epic or complete. Some of comics best writers contribute--Geoff Johns, Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, and Bill Willingham to name a few--and the quality of the art is just as high. Even with several different miniseries and over 1400 pages of story, the art never drops below good and often qualifies as excellent. Possibly the best part of the art though is how well and clearly it tells the story. The modern coloring also definitely enhances the overall look and impact of the art, making the whole book beautiful.

Starting with the amazing Countdown to Ininite Crisis, working through eight fantastic interlocked miniseries, and finishing with Ininite Crisis itself, this book is more than 1400 pages of great entertainment every comic fan should enjoy. I can't recommend it more. A truly great story amazingly collected and presented.
