OMAC robots are rampaging, magic is dying, villains are uniting, and a war is raging in space. And in the middle of it all, a critical moment has divided Earth's three greatest heroes: Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. But long-lost heroes from the past have returned to make things right in the universe... at any cost. Heroes will live, heroes will dies, and the DC Universe will never be the same again...

Infinite Crisis sees Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Supergirl and a host of other heroes and villains facing an enemy that threatens all reality. The Justice League is in dissolution, Earth's superhumans are suffering relentless assaults by Brother Eye's OMAC warriors and the Spectre is on a crazed mission to destroy all magic. Now four long-lost heroes, trapped in limbo since the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, are about to reveal themselves, to make things right in the universe at any cost... and the plan they concoct is earth shattering.

Geoff Johns, brings us one hell of a meaty tale here. The fall out from Wonder Woman's previous murderous actions is thrust to the fore here. How can the public trust the world's superheroes when they are capable of murdering a man who was unarmed (regardless of what he promises to do in the future)?

The art work is also noteworthy. There are countless pages where you could spend ages just exploring all the background imagery in some of the beautiful full double page panels.

At the end of the day this collection not only stimulates the mind, but also provides a visual feast for comic book fans.
