Slogging along with the multiple Earths June 14 2007
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have always loved the concept of DC's Multiverse, but while some of the initial crossovers between Earth-1 and Earth-2 were pretty heady stuff, reading DC's various CRISIS ON MULTIPLE EARTHS trade paperbacks makes it obvious that the company soon became stuck in a rut where those stories were concerned. The fans loved the concept, so DC gave them more, regardless of whether or not the stories were worthwhile.

CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS: THE TEAM-UPS VOLUME 2 presents some fun but ultimately forgettable pre-Crisis pairings between the heroes of Earth-1 and Earth-2. Collected here are stories from The Atom #29 & 36, The Brave and the Bold #62, The Flash #170 & 173, Green Lantern #45 & 52, and The Spectre #3. I struggled through most of these stories, due to the stilted writing styles of Gardner Fox, John Broome, and Mike Friedrich. Not that the stories are 100% bad; in fact, the general premises were fine, but the pacing and dialogue left much to be desired. Still, while there's not a lot of bang for your buck, there are some enjoyable moments. The narrative devices featured in the Flash stories were quite innovative for the time. The Atom team-ups were just silly fun. Also, the Spectre story has a nice cosmic horror vibe. Unfortunately, I just couldn't shake the feeling that, at times, I was reading scripts for rejected Superfriends cartoons. While the art of Gil Kane, Carmine Infantino, and Neal Adams is beautiful, they stories just don't hold up. The lackluster cover by Matt Wagner didn't help either - it sure would have been nice to see one from regular artists Alex Ross or Jerry Ordway.

Very entertaining! March 10 2013

I love reading classic comics stories such as these. It's very entertaining and an overall fun experience. Sure, the stories can be corny and a tad bit too cooky at times, but it's fun to see some of the foundations of the amazing medium that we have today, not to mention all the other media that sprang from it, like movies, TV shows, etc about superheroes! :-D
