Segments from Infinite Crisis Secret Files & Origins, Infinite Crisis # 5, Superman # 226, Action Comics # 836 and Adventures of Superman # 649 form the viewpoint of both Supermen -- "ours" and the aging one from Earth-2 -- about the Infinite Crisis. A unique way to share with the Men of Steel and their relatives the disintegration of the one arid, single-Earth universe, along with the grandiose attempt to bring back to life a Universe That Was. Love, glory, misery & conflict in a nostalgic examination of the Superman myth. Also, in my point of view, one of the best comics about post-9/11 reality. For Superman fans; best enjoyed after reading the complete "Infinite Crisis" saga and related matters. More than the four official Countdowns to I.C., this is to me the the item to collect, along with the special Countdown which featured the Blue Beetle and Golden Boost. All in all, a poignant way to remember us that, twenty-plus years after the original Crisis (or Crime), the Multiverse is still THE narrative device around which the whole DC reality spins.

Think back to the end of DC's 1985 series Crisis on Infinite Earths: Alexander Luthor led the Earth-2 Superman and Lois Lane, and the Earth-Prime Superboy, to a heavenly dimension in order to escape the effects of the Crisis. There, these characters would supposedly live out their days in happiness. Well, now we find that since COIE, heaven isn't exactly what they thought it'd be, and they've watched helplessly as events such as the death of Superman and the coming of Parallax, have made the DC Universe a darker place. So Earth-2 Superman decides to do something about it, bringing about... the Infinite Crisis.

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.

The comics collected in this Superman: Infinite Crisis TPB attempt to focus on the original, Earth-2 Superman and his dying wife Lois Lane during the cataclysmic main events of Geoff Johns' universe shattering Infinite Crisis. What we get here is an incredible roster of talent in terms of both writers (Jeph Loeb, Joe Kelly, and original Crisis on Infinite Earths mastermind Marv Wolfman) and artists (Ed Benes, Tim Sale, and the great Phil Jimenez who lent his pencils to Infinite Crisis), who all do nothing more than conjure up one big mess. Due to the varying creative minds, this TPB feels so uneven and incomprehensible that newbies to the event will be mind boggled, and even some veteran fans may be as well. The overall story adds absolutely nothing to Infinite Crisis, not to mention that no one's interpretation of the original Earth-2 Superman is as heart felt as Johns'. Possibly worth a look for die hard collectors needing every Infinite Crisis tie-in TPB, but for the rest, this is best left on the shelf.

The other people who reviewed this comic made it out to be very confusing for new readers. What they don't mention, is that the book wasn't supposed to be accesible for the new readers, and the book never said such.

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.

Having picked up many graphic novels over the years I come to look forward to the collection of stories that tie together a year or thread of a long running story. Lately it seems that for the publishers these novels are just becoming an excuse for lumping a single hero, updates, or to fill in the holes from another story line.

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.
