The battle of the Emerald Army has begun! Hal Jordan has launched all-out war on Pariah and the Dark Army to avenge his fallen Justice League heroes-but how can one man stand in the way of the Great Darkness? Meanwhile back on Earth, Titans Tower has burned and Deathstroke’s army has continued its scorched-earth march across the planet. To stop Slade Wilson, the young heroes of the DCU might have no other choice than to turn to the brutal tactics of Black Adam…
ComicBook.comThere's a lot to digest with the newly-retitled Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #3. Our heroes are on the ropes, a Titan may never be the same again, and Black Adam is failing at teaching a new Justice League. Putting Robin (Damian Wayne) and Superman (Jon Kent) at their lowest allows the perfect opportunity to introduce another legacy superhero team to lend their support. Seeing the Green Lanterns back together again is a treat, and their mission leads directly into the event series name change. Finally, the group Black Adam turns to makes all the sense in the world, and I can't wait to see what trouble the get into.
But Why Tho?Dark Crisis #3 is beautifully atmospheric. As the heroes are delivered punch after punch, Williamson is truly embracing the all-encompassing scale of an event comic. With the usual figureheads out of the picture, this is a beautiful portrayal of those left trying to pick up the pieces. The insecurity and nervousness is heartbreaking. And it is being brought to life by an incredible art team.
DC Comics NewsWilliamson is doing a phenomenal job of building an epic story despite the absence of several of DC’s most prominent characters. Taking the Justice League off the board is proving to be genius decision that allows for Williamson to focus on DCU’s entire legacy of fantastic characters. And the artwork by Daniel Sampere, Daniel Henriques, and Danny Miki truly adds to the epic feel of this series.
Lyles Movie FilesThere’s been a lot of cynicism over Dark Crisis and its new title, but Williamson, Sampere and the rest of the creative team are clearly doing their best to make this an event that is fondly remembered for years to come.
Fortress of Solitude
AIPTThis issue delivers from the cover to that last page reveal. Daniel must be looking at his Who’s Who comics to give us this massive collection of DC characters. Joshua peels back the layers perfectly to show and tease so that we will be back for more. I can’t wait to see how the Crisis will step up to this gathering of heroes.
