Review: Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1

I honestly don’t remember the original Infinite Crisis. It’s an event I might have read but the specifics are something that don’t stick out. So, I generally went into Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 with a pretty clean slate as to what to expect.

Written by James Tynion IV, Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 is an entertaining issue though feels like a story we’ve seen before in other DC series and storylines.

In this Dark Multiverse take on the original story, Ted Kord survives his encounter with Maxwell Lord. From there, it’s a story of power and corruption that we’ve seen many times before.

Like other Tales From the Dark Multiverse, the problem is the issue packs in a lot to one oversized issue. It’s something that would have benefited from an issue or two to expand or a series of miniseries taking place over a month. Kord’s survival also sets off a series of changes and events that are touched upon and only some of the most die-hard DC fans will appreciate it. There’s just a lot packed in and a lot touched upon without much depth.

The art by Aaron Lopresti is solid. With ink by Matt Ryan, color by Romulo Fajardo, Jr., and lettering by Rob Leigh the look of the comic is a nice mix of styles. The end is a blend that feels like what was being released during the time of the original series. There’s some great design as the series progresses and the team does an excellent job of creating lots of dramatic moments while having to pack in a lot into the issue.

The comic is entertaining and as a “what if” story it does a solid job. Issues remain that the real impact is for those who read the original series and know more of the references. The comic also packs in a lot leaving readers to ponder some of the more interesting aspects mentioned but not seen. It’s an entertaining issue but might be one more for fans of the original event.

Story: James Tynion IV Art: Aaron Lopresti
Ink: Matt Ryan Color: Romulo Fajardo, Jr. Letters: Rob Leigh
Story: 7.0 Art: 8.0 Overall: 7.0 Recommendation: Read
