Written by Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns and Judd Winick Art by Jesus Saiz, Rags Morales, Ed Benes, Phil Jimenez, Ivan Reis, and various Cover by Ladroenn Spinning out of IDENTITY CRISIS, COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE CRISIS was a Special that laid the groundwork for events in the DCU for the year to come. Now COUNTDOWN is collected with the hot miniseries that directly spun out of it: THE OMAC PROJECT! This crackerjack thriller by Greg Rucka (ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, WONDER WOMAN) features the moody, gorgeous art of Jesus Saiz (MANHUNTER). Every hero and villain in the DCU is under the gaze of an unbelievably powerful spy satellite. It's a technological marvel that answers to only one person - and he's got plans for it that are completely unknown to the superspy organization he controls: Checkmate! In a world where men can fly and melt metal with their eyes, there's now an army created specifically as an answer to them: the OMACs Batman and old ally Booster Gold are about to learn the chilling truth behind the OMAC Project - but will they work with or against each other? This volume includes COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE CRISIS, THE OMAC PROJECT #1-6, and WONDER WOMAN #219.

Review:

With a nod to Jack Kirby's One Man Army Corps, The OMAC Project continues DC's inexorable path to Infinite Crisis. In addition to the OMAC Project miniseries, the trade paperback begins with the 80-page issue Countdown to Infinite Crisis, in which Ted Kord, the second Blue Beetle, investigates some financial troubles but discovers a huge plot to eliminate all "meta-humans" (that's superheroes to most of us). Attempts to involve the Justice League are unsuccessful, and with buddy Booster Gold unable to help, Kord sets out on his own. The OMAC Project might be the most engrossing of the four stages of the Prelude to Infinite Crisis. Like the rest, it can be confusing without encyclopedic knowledge of the DC Universe (and two of the interacting characters are almost indistinguishable from each other), but a background page on the key characters helps significantly. Written by (among others) Greg Rucka, with art by Jesus Saiz, Rags Morales, Cliff Richards, and others. Not included is the 2006 one-shot follow-up. --David Horiuchi
