You know what's the problem with Infinite Crisis? It's already obvious who wins. DC has already promoted their 52 and One Year Later events to no end, and surprise surprise it takes place on Earth-1! It's like back in the 90's when that whole Onslaught mess was going on. "OH LOOK! All the Marvel Heroes who are lagging behind in sales sacrficed themselves to kill Onslaught...I never saw that coming..." Except that we all did, because Marvel was pushing Heroes Reborn on us about 3 months in advance.
Still I find myself morbidly curious what happens to Earth-2 Superman, Superboy Prime, and Alexander Luthor. The storytelling is great (well except for Superboy punching time until it breaks) and the action sequences are beautifully drawn. Still it would have been nice if I couldn't deduce a lot of the ending based on the previews for next months comics.
It does bother that the entire series is almost impossible to follow. I've just been reading the Prelude TPB's, and the main Infinte Crisis comics. It's obvious that I'm missing out on a lot. I never understood why readers continue to buy these massive crossovers, but I guess as long as we continue to do so, Marvel and DC are
going to continue to publish them.
It just bugs the crap out of me when I just want to collect Teen Titans or Batgirl comics, and I get one little bit of a bigger story. Why is it that if I want to see the big Superboy fight that started in Teen Titans, I have to buy the Outsiders?. I'm on the verge of just cancelling all the comics on my pull list and just buying trade paperbacks from now on. At least that way I know I'll get the whole story. (or most of it)
