CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS HC (Dec 1998)
CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS COVER BY PEREZ/ROSS (Dec 1998)
In the mid 1980's DC comics realized that their entire history had become too big to handle. So Marv Wolfman and George Perez took care of that with Crisis on Infinite Earths. The mini-series took all of the mulitiple universes that DC created and merged them into one. In 1998 DC merged the 12 issue series into a hardcover book with a wrap around cover by Geroge Perez and Alex Ross.

DC also produced a poster of the wrap-around dustjacket. In order to showcase all the fantastic detail in the painting, they had to make the poster oversized - 5 feet 5 inches wide by 2 feet 5 inches high. You can find a guide-map of all the characters over at the Annotated Crisis on Infinite Earths web site.
