A Quick Tip by Shandorian

All comics books look superheroes with a telescope. Meltzer tried to look heroes with a microscope in Identity Crisis and succeeded. This is another book which shows you how 'real' superheroes are. They eat, breathe, love, and lose as we do. The plot revolves around the murder of the wife of a superhero (Elongated Man) and the search to find the killer.

   Back in 2004, DC Comics came out with a 7-issue mini-series that they promoted as the “comic event of the year”. I know from experience that claims of this kind often lead to disappointments but I have to admit writer Brad Meltzer and the art team of Rags Morales and Michael Bair’s “IDENTITY CRISIS” did make its mark and may indeed have been the comic event of the DC Universe during that year.

They will never be the same (analysis)
Spoiler Alert - I am planning to talk about this comic pretty in depth. There. You are warned.      Alan Moore's Watchmen. Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. These were comics that made an impact on the genre so big we still feel the aftershocks. Now Brad Meltzer had done it.

About this book

Wiki

According to Publisher's Weekly, "This seven-issue miniseries by bestselling author Meltzer (The Zero Game) was both wildly popular and reviled."
The miniseries was selected by The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA)'s 2007 recommended list of Great Graphic Novels For Teens.
 
One of DC's top-selling series, the first issue was released in June 2004 and was ranked first in comic book sales for that period with pre-order sales of 163,111. The second issue saw a decline in sales and ranked third in comic book sales in July 2004 period with pre-order sales of 129,852.  The story also adheres to the continuity changes introduced by Crisis on Infinite Earths, as heroine Wonder Woman was retconned out of the pre-Crisis JLA. In all further references to the JLA's pre-Crisis adventures, including its origin story and the Secret Society incident, Wonder Woman is replaced by Black Canary. Following Infinite Crisis, however, Wonder Woman is restored as a founding member.
