Infinite Crisis: The Companion collects four Specials spinning out of DC Comics' biggest even, Infinite Crisis - taking readers on a journey throughout the four corners of the DC Universe...

In the aftermath of the universe-shattering events of Infinite Crisis, the new heroes and new alliances forge ahead in their very distinct missions.

Former Checkmate agent Sasha Bordeaux (The OMAC Project) must deal with the threat of a still-sentient Brother Eye; the Shadowpact (Day of Vengeance) fight to ensure that the Ninth Age of Magic can even begin; a new mission beckons for Catman and his ragtag team of only partly reformed villains (Villains United); and in deep space, two civilisations struggle to rebuild after The Rann-Thanagar War.

I may be stating the obvious here, but if you haven't been indulging yourself in the ongoing Infinite Crisis saga then this really isn't the time to start. It's not that it's overly complicated to follow, just that you'll get a hell of a lot more out of this collection if you've read The OMAC Project, Day of Vengeance, Villains United and The Rann-Thanagar War.

While there is a brief explanation at the start of this book (which helped refresh my memory on the main events - I didn't really want to wade through The Rann-Thanagar War again thank you) it doesn't really do them justice and, despite the fact I was no huge fan of The Rann-Thanagar War and Day of Vengeance has a weak plot, I strongly advise you to pick all four of the aforementioned collections if you really wanted to get the most from Infinite Crisis Companion.
