Despite what Amazon's synopsis says, by the time this came along multi-part "event" cross overs were very well established. The problem was they were normally [rubbish] - and have continued to be so, by and large, ever since. "Crisis" is the exception that proves the rule, in that previous charactertization is maintained and - most importantly - real changes happen. When you remember that the same period saw such hideously aweful non-events as "Secret Wars" (to name but one) Perez and Wolfman's achievment is all the more impressive. For anyone with a serious interst in comics this is a must, as so many lose ends were tied up (for a while at least), and so many promising characters were killed off (the original Huntress was the gretaest waste of promise, while we all grieved over Kara). On top of that it's great fun to read and Perez' art has never been more stunning. As a long time fan boy, who got this issue by precious issue when it first came out, I can't recommend this highly enough.
