    Read it. Every one of the stories in this series have been magnificent, and I always look forward to the next twist on one of the pivotal moments in DC's history. This one was especially delicious, as the original Crisis On Infinite Earths included so many characters, and echoed through so many of the story-lines that followed it. The Tales From The Dark Multiverse twist definitely has the same feeling, and we get a look at how differently things could have gone. Read Full Review

    Orlando deserves a lot of credit for trying something new with the Tales from the Dark Multiverse format and while the execution isn't always great, this is a worthwhile read for fans of the JSA despite the heavy casualties. Read Full Review

    While this is less Crisis On Infinite Earths and more The Last Days of the Justice Society, the story that we got in this is something that feels right out of the Dark Multiverse with how bleak it is and while that may not be for everyone, it is a chance to see our favorite and not so favorite Golden Age heroes get together to save a world where the more modern heroes fell in battle. The art is great and there are some decent character moments in the story, but the over-the-top death and blood seemed excessive and the setup for the story didn't work as well as I would have liked.

    By now you know the score with the Dark Multiverse"take a classic DC Comics story, change one thing about it that causes tragedy to unfold and watch as at least one hero turns evil while dozens more die gruesomely. That's all here in Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Crisis on Infinite Earths, but if you're looking for a ground-shaking story like the original Crisis you best look elsewhere. Read Full Review
