Book Review Number 11: DC Comics: Final Crisis


This is one of the darkest graphic novels I've ever read and I'm honestly not sure if I'm likely to read it again.  It wasn't bad, but it was far, far different than most of what I know.  Evil wins.  The good guys fail.  And reality is coming apart at the seams.  I don't have a lot to say about this one.  I think I'm still trying to process it all.  But I think if you're a casual DC fan or if you're someone who likes your superheroes just so, this wouldn't be the comic for you.  It's just too different from what you would expect (though, if you read any of the other Crisis series, it might be a bit more palatable to you.)
