Grade 8 Up—One of the most talked about series in comics publishing ever, "Infinite Crisis" is now out in a one-volume set of all seven original issues. It's about the alternative dimensions of Earths Prime, One, and Two, and the multiple characters that cross-pollinate these worlds. The three major DC heroes, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, are trying to work out the causality and relentless spin-offs from the infinite worlds. Panels from older comics are set beside modern renderings, showing the aging DC finally seems to acknowledge. At one point, Batman makes a caustic reference to when Superman died-a major news event from the '90s. In many ways, this title has a sad tone, as one realizes that the publisher is setting aside its legendary triad in favor of the newer, more modern heroes. Although comics frequently use the story line of the "final" appearance, and DC has not used that explicitly here, "Infinite Crisis" does feel like the beginning of the end. There are so many plotlines and moments here that could be mentioned; one that leaps to mind is the intergalactic brotherhood of Green Lanterns, and their final act captured in one mesmerizing panel. Simply put: a must-have for most libraries.—John Leighton, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
