Welcome to the dawn of the DC Universe's darkest day in this best-selling story by writer Geoff Johns (BLACKEST NIGHT)! The world's greatest heroes stand divided. If recent events don't tear them apart, the heroes may fall at the hands of an enemy from the past long since thought gone!

    I love how this mini series has started, and cant wait to see where it goes. Its icing on the cake to know that, as the mini series goes on, well be getting specials to wrap up the four mini series leading up to this, as well as getting a weekly series, 52, out of it all in the end, written by an all star team. As I said before, I cant wait! Read Full Review

    DC has described Infinite Crisis as its universess darkest day, and they werent exaggerating. But the publisher has just as loudly proclaimed that a good day is coming, and there are moments in this issue to inspire hope. With stakes set so high in only the first issue, Infinite Crisis is that rare event that cannot help but live up to its hype. Read Full Review

    In The End: This was an incredible start to an exciting story. So far it has lived up to all of the hype. Geoff Johns has written a solid story where nothing is wasted and both the action and drama run high. Jimenez and Lanning (outside of Lois Lane on the last page) have turned in a wonderful art job that really lives up to the epic feel of the story. Infinite Crisis is here, and I have the feeling it is going to be a wild seven months. Read Full Review

    Granted, Infinite Crisis #1 is by no means a self-contained story. New readers and speculators alike may be confused or put off. I do wish there had been a synopsis of some kind to bring everyone up to speed on what is happening in the book. References and footnotes to other involved titles would have enhanced the epic feel. But as far as epic superhero storytelling is concerned, Infinite Crisis #1 delivers the goods, and is well worth the anticipation. Is it potentially the greatest superhero epic since Crisis On Infinite Earths? Could be. It is a commendable start. Read Full Review

    Its hard to judge just how good this series will be without comparing it to the original Crisis and also by looking at just one issue; One thing is sure though, this is a fine start and an exciting one as well! Read Full Review

    Saving grace: But man, that final page reveal is the way its done! I may end up having the same problems with this series I had with the original Crisis (flashy, but not worth the cost; what fun is it to see so many old friends if its for the last time?), but at least for this issue I love all the riffs on that original industry-defining Crisis.

    Now I know this is a big event, and the DCheads are excited about it, but my gosh it's absolutely packed full of terrible writing. Big doesn't necessarily mean better, and a turd with a picture of the Golden Age Superman stapled to it is still a turd. Read Full Review
