About the author:
After graduating magna cum laude from Lawrence University (Appleton, Wisconsin), Dr. Julian Darius obtained his M.A. in English, authoring a thesis on John Milton and utopianism. In 2002, he moved to Waikiki, teaching college while obtaining an M.A. in French (high honors) and a Ph.D. in English.

His controversial dissertation became the novel NIRA/SUSSA. Darius has authored other works of fiction, including WATCHING PEOPLE BURN, a screenplay based on the true story of the deadliest school massacre in U.S history - which occurred in rural Michigan in 1927.

In 1996, while still an undergraduate, Darius founded what would become Sequart Research & Literacy Organization (Sequart.org), an organization devoted to promoting comic books as a legitimate art form. He writes for Sequart's website, has authored books on BATMAN BEGINS and classic DC Comics stories, and has produced documentary films for the organization.

He currently lives in Illinois.

Everything and a Mini-Series for the Kitchen Sink: Understanding Infinite Crisis
 

Authored by Julian Darius
Cover design or artwork by Kevin Colden

INFINITE CRISIS wasn't just a crossover mini-series; it was a sprawling network of multiple such mini-series, leading both in and out of the main one. It redefined not only the DC Universe but what a crossover could be. In its scale, it exaggerated both the advantages and the downsides of the universe-wide crossover form. In this short book, Dr. Julian Darius explores the event from start to finish, including its place in the history of super-hero comics.
