The Best JUSTICE LEAGUE and DC Crossover Stories, Ranked and Analyzed in New Sequart Book

Sequart Organization is proud to announce the publication of Classics on Infinite Earths: The Justice League and DC Crossover Canon, by Sequart founder Dr. Julian Darius.

In this series (of which this is the first book; subsequent volumes will focus on Batman, Superman, and other important DC characters), Darius argues that the DC Universe is old enough to have produced a canon of classic stories. Here, in this opening volume, he analyzes this canon as it pertains to the Justice League and DC’s universe-wide crossovers.

Since 1940, DC Comics has been bringing its heroes together, first as the Justice Society, then (beginning in 1960) as the Justice League, and finally (beginning in 1985) in universe-wide crossovers. Shared super-hero universes have achieved widespread attention in the wake of Marvel’s movies, but DC has been paving the way since 1940.

A decade in the making, Classics on Infinite Earths takes readers on a tour of this history, using discussion of classic stories as a unique way of illuminating the history and evolution of the DC Universe. In the process, Darius offers what may be the very first long-term study of how such a shared universe is managed.

Classics on Infinite Earths runs 428 pages, making it Sequart’s biggest book to date. It is available in print and for Kindle.
