    One thought on “Crisis on Infinite Earths”

    1. This was good overall. It was dramatized with a full cast of actors playing the various characters. Although there are different POVs, The Flash has the prominent one. I have this book somewhere (still haven't found it), but I thought it would be fun to check out the audiobook, and it's a good way to multi-task. I will put audiobooks on when I am doing other things, such as folding laundry or my drawing homework. I think there is a thin line with audiobooks, especially dramatized one. Sometimes [...]

    2. Why yes, I own both the comic and the novelization. Is there something wrong with that?Actually, here's a Little Known Fact about me: when I was in, maybe, junior high school I tried to novelize Crisis. I sat down with the comics and went through them, panel-by-panel, trying to put them into a narrative form. I tried to fill in things like expressions, reactions, to bridge the gap between the kind of story you can tell in a comic and the kind you tell in a novel. To my memory, it was pretty good [...]

    3. Includes spoilers:This was a bit different than I had expected. I had read the comics several times but was not aware of the novelization. This version is not a traditional audiobook but is an audio drama performed by a whole cast. I haven't read a lot of DC comics but had a passing familiarity with most of the characters. First odd thing, most of this book was narrated by the Flash. That is pretty counter to the comic version. The Flash basically becomes the center of everything that happens in [...]

    4. Surprisingly, I was very moved near the end of the book. Although very disjointed due to the time-jumping nature of the story, at the end, I found it worth the confusion at the beginning. Told from the POV of The Flash, the Multiverse is being destroyed one universe at a time. The super-heroes in multiple universes are being tapped to save all their worlds. Of the billions, only five Earths are left. The premise is pretty awesome, but I think the translation from graphic novel to book form left [...]

    5. DC does it well, and does it first. Always. What they need these days is renewed creativity in order to do it well and do it first all over again. This is a serious page-turner, and unpredictable at every step from the beginning to the end. A true pleasure to read, and is probably the first graphic novel to keep me awake reading in the middle of the night.

    6. This is not exactly a novelization of the ground-breaking comic book series from the 80's. In fact, if you haven't read that, I don't really recommend this one. The comic book series ran 12 issues, and tied into every single DC Comics title that was being printed at that time. Basically, too much for a novel without turning into something George Martin in length. What it is, instead, is the retelling of many of the high points of that series through the viewpoint of Barry Allen, the Flash, who d [...]

    7. This was Graphic Audio's Audio Drama version3.5 Stars3 of which was for the quality of the performance. Really, they went all out with the quality of the voice actors and sound effects. Superman, Batman, and the Joker all sound like themselves. The sound effects are top notch and are backed by a pretty decent soundtrack (except for those weird metal riffs that went down a couple times) There was nothing lacking in production quality from this. To me, it was perfect. I was really blown away by th [...]

    8. Great story, although it could have used a bit more thought in translating the comic to prose, some "scenes" just rush by and could have been developed further. Spelling and grammatical errors are too numerous to keep track of, but it is still a very fun read. I would recommend this to a friend.

    9. 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' was a twelve-part maxi-series published by DC Comics throughout 1985 and 1986, in an attempt to completely reboot their fictional universe; bringing an end to their multiverse concept for a more trimmed-down continuity for newer readers. This was DC's first publication in their Crisis chronology, as a way of rebooting timelines and correcting any discrepancies in comic-book lore, that has continued up to the present day with the 2005 'Infinite Crisis' follow-up and th [...]

    10. Let me begin by getting my biggest annoyance, regarding this book, out of the way. The cover, although beautifully drawn, gives away what should be one of the biggest shocks of the storySupergirl dies. When the finale of the book approaches and Kara (Supergirl) looks like she might die I was dragged right out of the storyere was no suspense because I knew from the cover she died. However, that's not the author's fault.The author, Marv Wolfman, is usually a comic book writer and is the guy respon [...]

    11. I had very high hopes for this book. The original Crisis on Infinite Earths comic books series is one of the best comic books ever that blew my over-actively imaginative mind when I was young and still does so. The idea of the author of that tale adapting his own wonderful work into a prose novel was exciting for me.Wolfman's smartest move here was the device of having Barry Allen, the Flash, bounce around in the timeline of the story kind of like Billy Pilgrim. This not only gave the story pote [...]

    12. A time traveling, multi universe at stake, DC royal rumble that focuses around a mainly incorporeal Flash. I read this in the novel format, rather than the comic series it was intended to be THE GOOD- I could see where they were going with the inter-dimensional and also time travel, and to some extent they managed to managed to weave a fairly decent story through that mix. But I feel it could of been done better and with a bit more punch. Kinda like the time travel aspect of the 2015 Flash TV se [...]

    13. I was disappointed with the book. This was more a monologue by the Flash about the Crisis than it was about the actual Crisis. And boy, is his monologue annoying! There are countless times the Flash whines about being invisible, intangible and thus not being able to help the "good guys". Additionally, he's always pitching a fit about not being able to find/see his wife Iris again. I was constantly thinking "Alright! I get it! You're having a crappy day, let's get on with it." The other thing is [...]

    14. I really wanted to love this - actually I listened to the audiobook, which was cool in that it had different voices for the characters instead of one narrator.The trouble with audiobooks is that you actually listen to each word, and what it really brought forward was the stilted language. The story doesn't always make sense, and while the motivations of the characters are perfectly clear, there are whole plot points that just sort of happen. They're moving a planet? They've traveled to another d [...]

    15. Finally read what all the Crisis on Infinite Earth's is about. I could never get through the comics version of this story and was overjoyed that a novelization has been written. I picked this up after I bought Infinite Crisis, and read this first. It was a fun read, though severely limited by using Barry Allen's POV, and also a nice lead-in to Infinite Crisis, which actually undoes what has been established in this book.Fans of the superhero genre, especially those like me who love novelizations [...]

    16. As other reviews have mentioned, this is a prose novel. If you love the Flash and you want to hear the story from his point of view, this is a solid read. Certainly the novel fleshes out what happens to the Flash. But the story is missing the original comic book's scale and grandeur from George Perez's artwork, which is a key reason why the original is so amazing . But still, Wolfman is a talented writer and for Crisis fans this is worth a read. Non-fans will be very confused.

    17. The idea of consolidating all of the alternative universes of the DC universe into one physical universe was an odd choice: It limited so many writing options in a field that only exists because of an appreciation of fantasies that don't exist in our one known universe. Still, plenty of good battles, plenty of appearances of old favorite characters, great art.

    18. Exciting to read the epic 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' series in novel-formbut unfortunately, the writing was annoyingly Mary-Sueish, several key scenes were missed thanks to The Flash's narration, and it simply tails off at the end. It was fun to read, butI'd rather pick up the graphic novel any day. :/

    19. Crisis on Infinite Earths is one of the essential DC titles. Its groundbreaking plot devices and emotionally important events shattered the superhero world, but they shattered some well known conceptions about the genre too. Where were many, now is only one. Earths and multiverses ended. People, the lucky ones, survived. Question is - for how long?

    20. I'm very familiar with the Crisis on Infinite Earths story This novel ties up and simplifies the very first company-wide crossover event and made it very readable for readers who are not familiar with the background stories - both leading to and resulting from the events in Crisis.Very readable!

    21. I had read the graphic novel some time ago, but reading the story was a great way to enjoy this story. I like the fact the author did it from the prespective of The Flash. If you grew up reading comics, this is a fun read.

    22. Hay que ver si se editó en castellano o si me lo terminaré mandando en inglés en algún momento. Ya que estamos, me gustaría conseguir el #12 de la serie original así la tengo íntegra después de más de veinte años de haberla comenzado :S

    23. The prose novel as opposed to the graphic novel / maxiseries. Enjoyable, but if the original series didn't blow you away, it's probably not for you.
