Massive Crisis on Infinite Earths box set arrives

One of DC’s premier events, Crisis on Infinite Earths is still celebrated decades after its debut. And now it’s gotten the deluxe treatment.

Crisis… for your wallet

When you say “Crisis” to a DC Comics fan, it instantly recalls some of the biggest and most impactful stories the publisher has ever told. None though, have been as widely celebrated as the groundbreaking Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Crisis set the standard for what a universe-altering event could and should be. It also introduced concepts that still have major effects on the DCU proper, as well as a myriad of offshoot stories in TV, cartoons, and movies.

In fact, this year’s big DC television crossover event is based on Crisis. It’s bringing together pretty almost every DC Comics ‘reality’ that’s ever hit a screen, big or small. That’s no small feat, and it’s with all of this in mind that DC is bringing the Crisis on Infinite Earths Box Set to retail.

The set includes every Crisis story leading into the big event, plus the complete Crisis on Infinite Earths itself.

It’s a beast that includes all hardcover editions of:

Greatness comes at a cost

Now, you might expect all of that to come at a premium price as well… and you’d be absolutely correct. The Crisis on Infinite Earths Box Set clocks in at a monstrous $500 USD. Yes, you read right, though it looks like Barnes and Noble has it on sale for $450 and Amazon has it at an even chunkier discount of $326.81 (that’s an odd number).

So if you want one, it looks like Bezos’ baby might be your best bet. Well, either that or maybe ask Santa for one.
