Sequart Organization is proud to announce the publication of Classics on Infinite Earths: The Justice League and DC Crossover Canon, by Sequart founder Julian Darius.
In this series (which is currently slated as a tetralogy), Dr. Julian Darius argues that the DC Universe is old enough to have produced a canon of classic stories. Here, 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’s 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, Dr. Julian Darius offers what may be the very first long-term study of how to manage such a shared universe.
The book contains some of the first scholarly analysis printed on many works, from Armageddon 2001 to JLA: Earth 2, as well as other works throughout DC history.
Classics on Infinite Earths runs 428 pages, making it Sequart’s biggest book to date. It is available in print and for Kindle. (Just a reminder: you don’t need a Kindle device to read Kindle-formatted books; you can download a free Kindle reader for most computers, phones, and tablets.)
