There's no denying we've been getting quite a bit of crossovers and events in comics. The reality is, they sell. As this post is about to prove.
This week, Marvel has unleashed its latest epic crossover, INFINITY. Jonathan Hickman and Jim Cheung are going all out in giving us a massive story involving a bunch of the big Marvel characters. Despite any speculation on this doing well, it still sold out at Diamond. You might still be able to find a copy at your local comic shop. A second printing is on the way.
You may have already read our review (you can find it HERE). According to the press release
Marvel issued, you can see we're not the only ones that dug it.
