I guess I'm at a disadvantage since I don't collect monthly comics but instead wait for the trade collections. It could be that if I would have read each monthly tie-in to DC's Infinite Crisis, I'd have a better understanding of what's happening in SUPERMAN: INFINITE CRISIS. Regardless, that really shouldn't be an issue. In the case where it's necessary to throw together stories from several different titles, DC usually helps the reader somewhat by providing text pages that explain "the story so far", and even what may be happening inbetween. This was not one of those cases. The stories are disjointed, the art highly inconsistent from one story to the next, and whole pages of story seem to be missing. Honestly, I'm fairly familiar with DCU history and the developments in Infinite Crisis, and I had a really difficult time with this book; however, it does bring about one very interesting development, giving an explanation for exactly WHY the DC Universe has become such a dark place over the past 20 years. So, well-played on that front - I just wish that there were more story here to explain what is going on.Read more ›
In this book the shifts in reality that the Infinity Crisis had caused are shown, specifilly from the view point of two different Supermen. Both have the same morals, but have gone through different events in life. We see both Superman shifting through time in what is to them alternative universes (which really are the other Superman's Earth) and what these Supermen, one very experienced because of his battles in World War II, and the other, while experienced, had made certain enemies that he didn't really have to make. Both make decisions that the others didn't, and it radically changes their worlds. What the two don't realize however, is that these changes in history end up causing the ends of both worlds, teaching both Supermen that the other made the right choices in protecting their world.
Overall this storyline is good and also has secret files explaining the histories of KEY characters from the Infinite Crisis. So overall a very underrated storyline that really deserves a little more respect.
Sadly this is the case of the Superman: Infinite Crisis. Disjointed and meant to help the reader understand what was going on at the same time of the Infinite Crisis (IC)series you would have to have read and reference back to the IC book at different points to make sense of it all. Having read the Green Lantern book it did a much better job of catching up than Superman.
It makes you wonder why they didn't just go and pick up all the treads and put it into one or two volumes instead.

This is a companion volume to Infinite Crisis, though it seems a bit outside of everything. There isn't much point to the story, which is decent.Published on December 30, 2007 by firstname.lastname@example.org
This book is part of DC's big Infinite Crisis series of books. Off all of them, this is the weakest ones. Read morePublished on March 19, 2007 by David T. Jones
This is kind-of an expanded or offshoot story from the bigger story found in the graphic novel "INFINITE CRISIS". Read morePublished on January 3, 2007 by Scott N. Kassner
