Although I am enjoying the Infinite Crisis events, I’m getting tired of the way DC is doing the crossovers. Sometimes the problems can be blamed on writing, other times it’s due to the release dates.
For instance, in Aquaman #37 we find out that
Directly following the Atlantis battle, and throughout the issue we witness Wonder Woman’s battle at Paradise Island. Eventually the battle ends with
On the other hand, Superman #224 leads directly in to the Infinite Crisis comic by showing Luthor’s journey in to Alaska and then his findings in Infinite Crisis #3. Well done. If you are going to write a cross over or a tie-in, then do so. Don’t just write a re-telling. And if your cross over takes the brief scenes shown in Infinite Crisis a step further, then please release it after Infinite Crisis is released.
Because of the afore mentioned problems the crossovers can feel a little disjointed and confusing. It also gets frustrating to map out the correct order in which to read your comics only to discover that you’ve gone about it all wrong.
