A spectacular and original novel based on the epic comics series that forever changed the universe of Superman and Batman by the man who created the original tale! Trapped in a timeless limbo, Barry Allen, the Flash, can only watch in silent and helpless horror as, one by one, countless universes fade from existance in order to feed the insatiable need for power of the Anti-Monitor, a being from the anti-matter universe of Qward. Under the guidance of the Monitor, his benevolent opposite, the super-heroes and villains of all realities are brought together for a last, desperate stand against the forces that promise the literal end of all existance.

It's not just that it's a complicated plot. - Goodreads
Perez's crowded artwork doesn't help either. - Goodreads

Review: Crisis on Infinite Earths (Post-Crisis Superman Chronology)

User Review  - Jsrott - Goodreads

Rather enjoyable read...it's a watershed moment in the DC Universe, and most of the stuff I've read comes after this particular story arc. It was fun to see how they "reset" the system and still allowed for many of the more popular heroes/villians to still exist. Well done. Read full review

Review: Crisis on Infinite Earths (Post-Crisis Superman Chronology)

User Review  - Mike Fowler - Goodreads

Despite it's significance it is mostly a boring slog of endless exposition. Some parts are truly brilliant but it's hard work getting there. Read full review
