Crisis on Infinite Earths: Worlds Will Live, Worlds Will Die
Hello my old friends...we're finally back with a new Comic Book Book Club. 2019 was a bit hectic and this was one of the premium shows that took a hit. But we're trying to do better in 2020 (New Year New Us) and we're kicking off a new year by taking a look at the 12-issue Crisis on Infinite Earths by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. With the live action version of this massive DC crossover wrapping up on CW in a couple of weeks, we figured it would be a good time to take a trip back to look at the series that changed the DC comic landscape.
Some of the things we discuss:
- The surprising key characters that were centered in the series
- The lack of Batman as a key figure in the story
- Supergirl's sacrifice
- Elevating Barry Allen and the Flash family and their importance in the DC universe
- The lasting effects of Crisis (both good and bad) for DC as a whole and why it would be tough for Crisis on Infinite Earths to be released today
