Review: Final Crisis 1
Pity the poor casual reader who picks up Final Crisis 1. As confusing as it is to enter a shared universe of costumed heroes and villains, coming into a big company crossover must be even harder.
Writer Grant Morrision (Invisibles, Seven Soldiers, everything else ever) has kept his promise to readers – this story does start with Anthro and end with Kamandi – but in-between is a confusing cross section of life in the DC Universe.
If you’re waiting for something heroic to happen, or even a good fight to break out, then maybe Final Crisis 2 or 3 will have something for you. In this issue, we get the Green Lanterns investigating the death of a New God. It’s an event they find shocking, which just goes to show they haven’t been reading that miniseries, Death of the New Gods, or talking with fellow Justice Leaguer Superman, who was involved in the action.
