Ok so today might be the biggest day in comic book history.
2 major, universe shattering series had issues out today.
House of M #7 climaxed the series(kinda) and had all kinds of awesome stuff in it.
If it were any other week, that would be the comic of the week, hands down. But it's not any other week.
This week it's time for a Crisis...
Every few years DC throws a Crisis that reinvents their universe and the way people view it. The last major Crisis was Crisis on Infinite Earths, which took place in 1985. CoIE took all of DC's continuity and regulated it to make sense in a current context. It basically changed everything. There was a lot of complaining done at the time, but it worked and it needed to be done. The current Crisis is a direct spin off of that title, Infinite Crisis. I don't want to spoil anything but by the end of the first book, it's VERY evident how.
Comic of the Week:
Infinite Crisis #1
Written by Geoff Johns; Art by Phil Jimenez & Andy Lanning; Covers by Jim Lee & Sandra Hope and George Pérez
