While I have only had the book for a day or so, the binding seams to be very well put together.

This book is amazing and also contains far more material than is listed in the description.

The page count is actually over 1400, and the book contains not only everything listed in the description, but another twelve or thirteen issues more (including the five issue Crisis of Conscience JLA story, all four issues of the sacrifice storyline (not just the one listed) and a four issue Superman/Shazam story arc).

This is by far the most comprehensive way to read Infinite Crisis. I was a fan of the series and thought I had followed it pretty closely, but this omnibus contains 19 issues I've never read before. I applaud DC for putting out such a complete book, and I also really like the way the issues in the book have been placed in the best possible reading order as well.

I think this is probably the largest omnibus either Marvel or DC has released to date, and it's very well put together with a nice, sturdy binding that still opens well and makes for easy reading.

As to the story itself--this book covers probably my favorite period in DC history (and touches on pretty much every aspect of the DC universe of that time). The stories contained are fast, intense, exciting, well written, populated with interesting characters, and tie together into one massive epic. This is probably the period when the DC universe felt the most connected, and all the stories feel important. During the period this book covers, amost all of the DC line felt like it was building toward something big, and almost every storyline felt like it mattered as part of something bigger.

The individual miniseries in this book are all very entertaining, and Infinite Crisis itself (which doesn't even start until page 950) ties them all together and pays them off well.

Format: Hardcover
This omnibus collects the comics of the Infinite Crisis event and its tie-ins. The stories included:

Countdown to Infinite Crisis: A cool little story about Blue Beetle, great for fans of JLI. Leads directly into The OMAC Project.

The OMAC Project: A story about Batman losing control of a creation he made in response to the events of Identity Crisis.

Sacrifice: Just as the OMAC Project deals with the abuse of Batman's power (Brother Eye and the OMACs), this story deals with the consequences of Superman under an evil influence.

Villains United: A great lead up to the main event. Follows low ranking DC bad guys resisting the army of villains Luthor is putting together for the main story in Infinite Crisis. It's actually the standout of the lead up stories for me. I'm ashamed to say I haven't read much of writer Gail Simone's work before, but I certainly will now.

Lightning Strikes Twice: Another story about a malevolent force taking control of Superman. This time, the source is magical and Captain Marvel and Shazam work to stop it.

Day of Vengeance: Here we go again. The Spectre, arguably DC's most powerful magical being, is manipulated and his power abused, with terrible consequences for Earth's magic users. Like Villains United, it's a great showcase for some lesser known heroes who come together to stop the Spectre, and a fun story. Written by Bill Willingham of Fables fame.

Rann-Thanagar War: The homeworlds of Adam Strange and Hawkman are at war. I'm not terribly familiar with either character, but even knowing the basics I could still enjoy the story. It's a space adventure on a large scale, like a good Green Lantern event. It ties into the Infinite Crisis nicely.
