After the INFINITE CRISIS, the DC Universe spent a year without Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman -- a year in which those heroes were needed more than ever as the fate of the world hung in the balance. This is 52, a four volume collection of the unprecedented, critically acclaimed weekly series of death, danger, romance, terror and the never-ending search for heroism in the DC Universe's most eventful year ever. The series features the best and brightest writers from the comic-book field: Geoff Johns (INFINITE CRISIS), Grant Morrison (ALL STAR SUPERMAN), Greg Rucka (WONDER WOMAN) and Mark Waid (KINGDOM COME), working together to tell the tale of a world awakening from a nightmare to face a new day. With their leaders gone, which heroes will stand tall? Who will fail at the most critical moment? Who will live -- and who will die?

Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman have disappeared, a bunch of heroes are either dead or scattered into space, and the world has bee...
Right after Infinite Crisis wrapped up, the regular DC books apparently skipped forward a year. 52, published at the same time, told the story of that missing year in 52 issues, published once a week yearly. I'm not sure what I expected out of it, but I didn't expect it to be very good. That's a pre...
Perused through it. The artwork was awesome and I really appreciated all of the backstory of Kate and Reyes but gotta tell you, I'm not really a DC girl (although I do really love Catwoman and I have a sort of crush on Wonder Woman)- didn't read Infinite Crisis and therefore couldn't really understa...
