Countdown to Infinite Crisis – This one shot was included in my OMAC Project TPB for very good reasons. It is an excellent lead-in to Infinite Crisis and a must read.
The OMAC Project – Post Identity Crisis, Batman becomes paranoid and creates a satellite called Brother Eye to spy on the Justice League. The satellite is stolen by Checkmate who have also created thousands of deadly sleeper robots called OMAC’s. This one is integral to Infinite Crisis. It’s my favorite of the crossovers and ties in directly with the main plot. I’ll admit that it loses steam about a third of the way through, but the beginning section is unforgettable.
Sacrifice – Superman is being controlled by Max Lord through the use of false visions. We basically see the same events played over and over again with different visions inserted. It’s an interesting story, but not necessary. There are a couple of important plot points, but they could have easily been moved into The OMAC Project making the whole five-parter superfluous. One of the more obvious money grabs.
Lightning Strikes Twice – Eclipso manages to take control of Superman and later attempts to switch control to Captain Marvel. This would be a lead-in to Day of Vengeance, which is an unnecessary tie-in making this doubly unnecessary. It’s also very forgettable. The 2012 Infinite Crisis Omnibus didn’t even bother with this one.
Villain United – I believe this was my first introduction to writer Gail Simone and I was really impressed. This one is a bridge between Identity Crisis and Infinite Crisis, and it is an important piece with a direct tie in. This is my second favorite tie-in after The OMAC Project although it maintains better momentum.
Day of Vengeance – Without a host, the Spectre is easily manipulated by Eclipso and attempts to destroy all magic in the DCU. It is tied to the main story in that the whole thing is manipulated as part of the villain’s master plan, but it is a really long drawn out story that wasn’t really necessary. It includes a five part mini-series as well as a single standalone issue and events within Infinite Crisis itself.
The Rann-Thanager War – Rann and Thanager go to war and drag in just about all the sci-fi characters and races from the DCU. This one is completely unnecessary and has only a tenuous linkage to Infinite Crisis. I didn’t read this one when it first came out because it got bad reviews and I’d say the reviews were well deserved. It’s extremely boring and a slog to get through.
The core Infinite Crisis is definitely the star of the show. It has both the best art and the best writing. DC seemed to REALLY want to keep the material here in chronological order because although Infinite Crisis comes last, it is occasionally broken into with single issue tie-ins that technically occur concurrently. This is Geoff Johns at his absolute best, and he manages to tie together so many elements effectively. There are countless memorable moments from small ones like the death of The Human Bomb to major ones like the final mental snap of Superboy Prime. The big moment in Crisis on Infinite Earths was the death of Supergirl but I’d say that there are at least a handful of moments in Infinite Crisis that for me exceeded that one.
I believe that this is the third release of the Final Crisis Omnibus after a 2012 and a 2018 version. The 2012 version was 1152 pages while the 2018 and 2020 versions are 1424 pages. As far as I can tell, the 2012 version was missing a lot of the single issue tie-ins. The largest Omnibus I own is the Fourth World Omnibus at 1481 pages followed by the Bronze Age Jack Kirby at 1472 pages, so this is only the third biggest I own, but what a beast. There is a two page introduction, no index and almost no extras and I assume this is all done to keep the page count down. I put the book on a scale and it weighs in at nearly 8 pounds so this is literally heavy reading.
I would put Infinite Crisis well above Zero Hour or Final Crisis and quite frankly, I’d say it’s much better structured than Crisis on Infinite Earths. The core of CoIE was very good but the tie-ins were better left unread. You can’t have 1400 pages of material with a bunch of writers without varying degrees of quality, but the percentage of great stuff is much higher than in other well known DC crossovers. It’s a shame that there is almost no extras, but completely understandable given the extreme page count.

En cuanto al envío, llegó bastante rápido y en buenas condiciones. Sé que Amazon no se distingue mucho por enviar Omnibus en buenas condiciones, pero gracias a DIOS a mí si me han llegado en perfectas condiciones.
Must get for any comic book fan. Even if you are fairly new to the DC comics universe, you'll still get enjoyment out of the main story. You'd definitely get more out of the book if you had some idea about the DC heroes as well as DC's take on its multiverse.
