    Writer Joshua Williamson and the artistic team of Daniel Sampere, Rafa Sandoval, Alejandro Sanchez, and Troy Peteri take turns one-upping each other in the “dramatic moments” category. Whether it’s Green Arrow making the speech of his life or the ultimate father-and-son moment for the House of El, Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 delivers again and again. There are so many characters on each page and so much action to take in, you’ll find yourself just admiring each and every panel to make sure you’re not missing a moment.

    But Why Tho?

    Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 is a powerhouse of a penultimate issue. It carries with it so much expectation and delivers wholeheartedly. The characters go through extraordinary pain, all of them proving themselves against the most impossible of odds. The coming together of heroes will always be an exciting moment, but Williamson has put them through hell to get them there. It has managed at all times to toe the line between intimate individual moments and universe-threatening battles. And it is captured by a sensational art team that has been utterly flawless throughout.

    Dark Crisis On Infinite Earths #6 is fantastic, and that’s all there is to it. Williamson’s twist has made this a different story than what everyone thought, which is a great thing. Sampere, Sandoval, and Sanchez kill it on the art, something a book this action-heavy needs, and Peteri’s letters do a wonderful job of delivering the dialogue in the best way. This issue won’t win over the naysayers, but they’re missing out on an amazing comic.

    We’re at the penultimate issue of Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, and this compelling series oddly feels like the start of something even bigger. Despite the scale of the battle, with Pariah ripping apart the multiverse and invading with his Dark Army, it feels surprisingly character-driven. The massive fight scenes still have some surprisingly nice character moments, such as Jace Fox shrugging off his loner status and finally start stepping into his role as a major DC hero. Even Beast Boy, usually played for laughs, delivers one of the most brutal beatdowns of the series against the possessed Deathstroke in a scene that’s been well-deserved for the last few decades. And deep in the hidden worlds of Pariah’s personal multiverse, the heroes of the Justice League prepare for a dangerous mission back home—but it seems like one hero may not be able to make the journey back with them.

    Dark Knight News

    Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 is grandiosity incarnate. The story booms with excitement and the stakes feel pretty high. While I’m not thrilled with DC’s reversion to an Infinite Multiverse, I have enjoyed the ride so far. Williamson’s script is heartfelt and thrilling. Sampere’s art is fantastic. These two individuals make for a great team and therefore a great book.

    Final Verdict: It’s fun. Pure fun.
