Infinite Crisis Companion is something that should be read during or before you read Infinite Crisis to avoid spoilers. It collects four tales and puts them all into one volume. There is a nice prologue section which attempts to catch readers up on the other spinoffs taking place as well as IC events.

I will break the tales up individually as I particularly enjoyed this piece.

DAY OF VENGEANCE

Infinite Crisis Companion collects four one-shot comics published during the Infinite Crisis event. Each is a sort of epilogue to one of the Countdown miniseries, and wraps their storylines up to varying degrees. Each one is as good as the miniseries they wrap up, which means that Rann-Thanagar War is still the weakest of the lot and Villains United is still my favorite. So why are they being published here as a sort of hodgepodge instead of in their respective trades? Well, obviously to make mo ...more

It's probably worth reading if you read Infinite Crisis (and particularly if you've read the lead-in books, which are worth it to varying degrees). Some of these stories wrapped up, and some didn't, but they added to the story, and might best be read interspersed in an IC read rather than on their own.

This was kind of pointless. Loved main story line but really didn't care for this. Kind of confused how most of this tied in to be considered a companion to main story.

This book was such an awful contrivance, neither placing this stories with the mini-series that they completed, nor with the Infinite Crisis that they interweaved with. Thank goodness that there's now an Infinite Crisis Omnibus that puts them in their correct places. Still, the stories tend to be overbloated sideshows in the Infinite Crisis story whose best feature is highlighting the miniseries that flowed into the Crisis.

Day of Vengeance. It feels like this finale gives us the full scope of Da

The stories themselves were good and worth reading if you read any of the Infinite Crisis minis that lead to the event because these are the conclusions. My issue with this is that it exists when these stories should’ve been collected with their respective minis, because they tie up all the loose ends of those stories.

While the title says "Companion" this graphic novel is more of a companion to Prelude to Infinite Crisis then to the actual Infinite Crisis mini-series, as it takes place prior to to it. We get four stories that help to set the foundation for Infinite Crisis: Day of Vengeance - The Ninth Age of Magic, which sees The Spectre on a mission to eliminate all magic from the universe, even that wielded by heroes such as Phantom Stranger, Zatanna, and Doctor Fate; Rann-Thanager War - Hands of Fate, Gree ...more

Basic Premise: A collection of one-shots relating to the Infinite Crisis event in the DC universe.

This volume is intended to draw together the events of the Crisis and help readers understand their connections. It does the job well. Read it during or after other books in the Crisis series or you will see spoilers in these pages.
