  The Good: 
           Enough cannot be said about the epicness and sheer scale of Crisis. This series along with Secret Wars I defined 80's comics for me. This series rewards you over and over again every time you read  it, whether you are just starting out with DC or are a seasoned reader this series cannot be missed.
 The Bad
             This series would have benefited from having a larger run maybe 24-issues? Too much story too little space. Otherwise every bit the Masterpiece.
The Verdict: 5/5
                 An Epic Ending to an Epic series Crisis had a 50 year build up, with a two year storyline set-up and a flawless execution by a gifted creative team in Wolfman and Perez. They don't make Events like they used to kids! A Million thanks to Silkcuts for allowing me a chance to participate in this one-of-a-kind relay review.
