Countdown to Infinite Crisis
6 Page Preview @ PopCultureShock
This one's for you Papanii. The rumors are true and the countdown to Crisis 2 is on!
Wednesday, March 30th brings the Countdown to Infinite Crisis one-shot, clocking in at a fat 80 pages of superheroic goodness that sets up the future of the DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns, Greg Rucka and Judd Winick and drawn by Ed Benes, Rags Morales, Phil Jimenez, Ivan Reis and Jesus Saiz, wrapped up lovingly under a cover by Jim Lee and Alex Ross... it's hard to imagine a better buy for a buck.
That's right, the Countdown to Infinite Crisis one-shot costs only $1.
With DC jam-packing this book with so many A-list characters and creators and offering up 80 pages of comic entertainment for only a dollar, it's pretty clear that this is going to kick off a major storyline. Comic Book Resources have reported that all this "Countdown to Crisis 2" action plays upon recent events of Teen Titans, JSA, Green Lantern, and the awesome Adam Strange mini-series by Andy Diggle and Pascal Ferry. And rumors are that this huge crossover will set a new status quo for DC characters and a more classic and distinct appearance for each major character.
If that's not enough "this changes the DC Universe as we know it" for you, there are also four new 6 issue mini-series spin-offs from Countdown to Infinite Crisis to keep your comic senses buzzing in April and May. The Omac Project by Greg Rucka & Jesus Saiz, The Rann/Thangar War by Dave Gibbons & Ivan Reis, Villains United by Gail Simone & Dale Eaglesham, and Day of Vengence by Bill Willingham & Justiniano with inks by Isotope amigo Waldon Wong.
