But if you can't find it, or dont like omnibus because of their size, I'd really recommend reading Countdown to Final Crisis, The Omac Project, Sacrifice, and Crisis of Conscience, to get the most of it. Villains United and Day of Vengeance were personal favorites, but I also thoroughly enjoyed the JLA tie-ins and the Superman stories. It's fun, and 10 years later it's an enjoyable relaxing read, but nothing to make it super memorable.

Its still alot to read previously, though, but if it sounds like homework, its not, because these are all excellent reads. I liked the Rann-Thanagar War a little less but I always some trouble to follow the intergalactic storylines.

The Omnibus also weaves the mini-series finales into the Infinite Crisis series itself (and they come across as coherent, complete parts of the story, albeit not up to the writing of the main storyline. I again, cannot believe how little Superboy Prime and E2 Superman comprehended the concept of the multiverse, Luthor as well. With what Johns has to say about the state of superhero storytelling in the modern day, how it relates to the classic Golden and Silver Age stories, how it all ties into the vast history of Dc and the way he gives old characters new life and nuance, is something to behold. Recommended if you have a good general familiarity with the DCU and are looking for a really big epic. Issues arise with Checkmate, Brother Eye, the Secret Society, the Secret Six, and the seemingly unprovoked Thanagarian/Rann war that snowball into one huge conspiracy, but it all leads back to one very real problem that the league has: trust.

I'm excited about not reading it which ultimately is too bad as I was terribly excited sbout starting it last month. This always rides the line of not showing enough, but Johns lands just right and tells a meaningful and memorable story. Geoff recently became a New York Times Bestselling author with the graphic novel Superman: Brainiac with art by Gary Frank. All told, there's about an issue of plotline here, and it can mostly be found in Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman.Johns is an expert at making that little red string connect to every dot in his writing, and even the parts of this story that seem like they had nothing to do with anything do indeed have a purpose.

I mean, just as you can expect with any DC crisis event, a lot of action, fast paced shit going on, it all seems like doom and gloom however, in the end…everyone walks away unscathed. I read the event before with Absolute Infinite Crisis ( review here) and loved it, but rereading the entire event with all of the supplemental lead-up, is a completionist's wet-dream.

The contrast between the lighthearted “heroic” feel of the Golden Age and the noticeably darker tone of contemporary comics is used to emphasize a theme of heroism, change, and the nature of good and evil.
