Re: Final Crisis #7




Seriously, what?

I have no idea what just happened there.

But I liked it.

I had EXACTLY the same reaction, except that I didn't like it.

Hooray for me wasting your time!

Hey, you see my occupation on the sidebar there?

I've got nothing but time to waste. Have at it.

Gah! I really do have to get myself to the comic book store!

Stupid snow!

Like it? Oh, say, it isn't so, Ryan!

It was yet another Morrison train wreck. Another "masterwork" that you have to hide from potential new customers.

"What are some of the biggest storylines in DC lately? I kind of want to get into it."

"Final Crisis and Batman RIP. But I can't let you read them, because you won't understand them and I can't explain them to you."

Like most of Morrison's work, it's like a looking at the pieces of a vase that, well, it might have been pretty, but it's hard to tell, because someone dropped it from a great height.

Well, perhaps I should explain more in depth. I liked it, but I didn't like it. As an event I found it to be a failure. As a story I found it to be -- as you said -- a broken vase.

But I liked that it moved at a breakneck pace. I liked that it had wacky Japanese guys, the Zoo Crew, Aquaman, "Flash Facts," and 50 different Supermen.

But will I read it again like I do my favorite comic stories? Maybe once to see if it makes more sense. But it's not going to be something that sticks with me for a long time.

I liked the issue for what it was. But then, my expectations were pretty low to begin with. It was a better ending than I expected.
